    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    A good place to go if you want a job where you don't have to use your brain or think. A good place to go if you want free flu shots, who cares if they are filled with mercury and result in a bunch of brain dead coworkers who don't even know how to perform simple tasks.

    Cons

    Working with morons who can't perform simple tasks. Everyone is afraid to do anything outstanding for fear of being squashed or laid off in the next rounds. If you're female, don't even waste your time thinking you are going to advance. Don't waste your time filing a discrimination complaint with HR, it will go no where.

    Advice to Management

    Try to pretend you are not a military contractor and try to fit in with corporate america, treat minorities with respect and realize that for the salaries you are paying, you're bloody lucky to have the employees you have.

    Pros

    Many opportunities. Development happens as part of the process when you look for opportunities to grow and evolve your capabilities. Peer to peer support is amazing at Boeing.

    Cons

    Some Sr. Managers are allowed to succeed on the backs of their employees and first line managers and are not challenged. There are instances where this happens over time and the Sr. Manager has significant turnover (chewing through their direct reports). Executives need to actively engage to ensure this does not happen.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of first line managers.
