I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Upward mobility, chances to move within the function all over the country and the world; market leading benefits. Initiatives to bring in the best and brightest engineering talent.

Cons

Low leadership, lack of management willingness to address poor performance, especially at the highest levels. Rather than solving leadership problems, we move them.

Advice to Management

Instead of talking about personal accountability, demonstrate it. As an HR professional, I see that we don't always follow all of the rules that we make others follow, and it is disappointing.

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

    Pros

    Boeing is very large and diverse in terms of employment options. You can be an engineer, financial analyst, a manager, a mechanic, a safety guru, security, IT, you name it. Sometimes even cross over. There's a great deal of opportunity. Great work life balance as well.

    Cons

    Big business always has problems. It seems too bureaucratic and cumbersome in its processes and methodologies. Expect a lot of forms, regulations and signatures before anything actually happens.

    Advice to Management

    End meaningless policy and metrics. Focus more on the core product and your employees. Try to slim excess Pro's and regulation.


  2. "Great Experience -- however you have to be driven or you'll die of boredom"

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities, awesome programs for development, great mentors

    Cons

    Huge company causes tons of bureaucracy and politics, is easy to get lost in the shuffle, slow moving up the ranks

    Advice to Management

    Create a collaborative environment, too many people are single points of failure and owners of important knowledge.
