I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

A wide variety of work experiences and exposure to technology. Excellent support for continuing education outside of the company..

Cons

The adherence to the Lead Systems Integrator (LSI) business model severely limits opportunities for growing skills and experience

Advice to Management

The LSI model of company management will not work in this austere economic environment. There must be a return to the reliance of developing technologies in house.

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

    Pros

    Education program like no other, benefits are thorough

    Cons

    The benefits have decreased tangibly over the past two years. This is a multi-national corporation that has sold out to the supply chain world. Experiences vary widely across organizations, states, and countries. If you don't have a four year technical degree, then your chance of going anywhere within the company is practically non-existent these days unless you enjoy lying in your job applications and interviews. When they say minimum requirement is a 4 year technical degree, then that's the requirement.

    Advice to Management

    Quit putting so much weight into degrees when you've got thousands of experienced workers who have had their hands on the product. There is no degree that makes up for that. Quit it with the Employee Involvement nonsense. No one cares about EI. Seriously. Knock it off. Quit bowing down to Toyota too, and maybe come up with an original thought instead of buying them from someone else. You build airplanes, not cars. There's a big difference. I don't get to watch my car get built on the production line. Your customers do. BIG difference.

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

    Pros

    Retirement plan
    The definition of a steady job
    Lateral job movement is easy
    In every state

    Cons

    Lots of overhead
    There are some people there just to get a pay check
    Lots of bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Leave the company so our rates will be more competitive.
