I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits and opportunities for personal improvement are awesome

Cons

The climate in California for companies like Boeing is not great. I would target Boeing sites outside California as layoffs are common in Huntington Beach and the campus's future is uncertain.

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. There are opportunities to move around within engineering functions.

    Cons

    Philadelphia site lacks professional development programs. Company overhead is limited and it is very difficult to move up past a certain point. You have to be open to move to other sites in the country.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management in the company is getting better. They need to to bring in more people from outside of Philadelphia to grow the business and bring in new perspective. The lower level management lacks strong vision and desire to promote younger skilled engineers into management.

    Pros

    It's a fun, family atmosphere. Great technology, great people, making a daily job of doing things that used to be impossible.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless in a Dilbertish way. The constant shifting of org charts does nothing to help the fundamentally disorganized structure of the company; it's hard to find the people you need. Certain things are hideously inefficient: Ordering small parts and supplies typically requires an amount of red tape that greatly exceeds the price of what you're ordering, and I've often seen people go through five hours' worth of finance paperwork, phone calls, trying to find out where the process stalled, perhaps for weeks, to get a one hour, one person job done.

    Advice to Management

    Penny wise, pound foolish. First thing to fix is the finance department, which is a wreck. Next, how about attracting some people to replace all the high-end engineers who are retiring in a decade or so? Don't forget, it takes eight or ten years for a good engineer to really learn how this whole building-a-jet-airplane thing works. You'd probably better start finding and keeping engineering grads now, or you won't have the skills available to continue development a decade from now.

    Facilities (puget sound) should also be cracked down on; they're getting away with too much. How about some accountability?
