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

    Pros

    If you are a union-represented engineer: good benefits and opportunities to get some technical training. Potential for flexible work schedules which is great for people caring for young children or elderly parents. Still some opportunity to move around the company to gain more experience instead of having to move to a completely different company but those opportunities are shrinking. The opportunity to work with some very smart people.

    Cons

    Restrictive skill/job codes that limit movement which used to be a major benefit. Increasingly difficult to move to the next pay scale. Too many levels of management and frequent re-organizations which impacts productivity. Depending on the organization, you can be transferred as often as annually to different sites all over the Puget Sound which makes it difficult to maintain carpools and vanpools, so commuting can be a significant issue. Big company politics.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of the value your experienced employees bring to the company.

    Pros

    they used to pay for education plus offer education

    Cons

    if you are older, they can lay you off because your salary is high and replace you with a (younger) lower salaried person, and it's not called age discrimination!

    Advice to Management

    when you say it's time to "prune the branches," we know what you really mean. My manager said this just before I got my WARN notice, and I filed a complaint. HR said that they "took care of the situation." I left, he stayed...
