Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Great employee benefits such as: community service hours cash matching, cash donation matching, 401K matching, insurance, and a relatively easy process for reimbursing continuing education in technical degrees. Engineering management is pretty generous with "flex time".

Cons

1) Parking is horrendous and management refuses to acknowledge the problem. They believe the solution is really only to add more parking stalls further away and parking shuttles.
2) Although it's a big company, it takes way too long to look into moving around into other jobs after 1 year.
3) You very much feel like you have no personal impact to company goals.
4) I get the impression that senior management sees individual employees as expendable, and undercutting the employees to preserve their profit margin for stakeholders. I don't get that from my immediate supervisors however.
5) Too much technical decisions are defaulted to management to make the decision. Many workers don't have a sense of pride or ownership of successes and failures.

Advice to Management

Lead by example: If we are having to pay more for healthcare and you are paying less toward our retirement, shouldn't the executives do so as well? It is probably not a good idea to announce stock increases as you are taking away benefits from your employees via a contract.
