Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Light Workload
Low Expecations
Nice Christmas Break
"Experienced" work force
Work-Life Balance
Pay for OT

Cons

Uncompetitive Compensation
Slow Career Advancement
Culture of Mediocrity
Unhappy atmosphere
Bureaucratic system bogs down all decision making
Contempt between labor forces; Engineering vs. Mechanics vs. Business Professionals

Advice to Management

The culture should encourage employees to excel at their positions and be excited to work for an aerospace innovator, not demoralize and belittle them into believing that they don't deserve any better. The culture of "Rules and Processes" before "Innovative Approaches and Personal Excellence" has cost the company most of their young, bright minds, and will continue to hamper the company until changes are made. Most young Engineers and Business Professionals I know in the company want to leave.
