Pros

Great place to work - great products and customers - good suppliers and over all benefits package - opportunities to advance are there if the effort put forth - it may take a little longer in aerospace industry

Cons

some managers theory x - poor job of promoting good leaders - diversity challenge forcing the promoting of non qualified managers - challenge with information system connectivity.

Advice to Management

stick to the Boeing values and leadership attributes - it is the right approach and the right way to lead into the future - i think it would be worthwhile to focus on who is put into leadership positions - I have worked for some really great or soon to be great leaders - but at the same time i have worked with or for some really poor leaders who really have no business being in charge of people - also I would suggest a continued focus on information system connectivity ... it is important that the information system connect to allow less man power ... Finally, I see labor issues negatively affecting the companies performance and ability to compete effectively in the future - labor unions once served a good purpose but they - in my view - have gone way beyond and have gone over the top with their demands on the compnay

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits, really cool experiences made available to interns, good culture created around teaching interns, people make themselves available to you if you would like to hear more about the company, the tours are great, the HR do a good job of bringing in a good group of people in for the summer and treat them very well.

    Cons

    Work experience was not very interesting, managers get overworked and forget that you are there, sometimes this also makes it difficult to receive feedback on anything that you work on.

    Advice to Management

    Structure of the company is extremely tall. It takes digging through layers and layers of people to get from an entry level position to an executive position. Employees should be encouraged to be more entrepreneurial and innovative.
