Pros

Boeing is very supportive of employees - my managers have always pushed us to apply for positions to help advance our career. You do have to take charge of your own path, though, and market yourself. The pay and compensation are fair for the area. Many of the employees have been there for a while, which can be a pro or con - managers at lower levels (slightly below senior management) tend to be home grown, so they understand what the employees are really doing. Their Learning Together education program is a great way to advance your personal skills.

Cons

It is very difficult to change career paths once in Boeing. If you enter in one field and wish to go into another, Boeing does not help you do so. Despite their Learning Together program, Boeing does not make it easy for you to take newly acquired skills into another career at Boeing. Management changes often, which can be disruptive to work.

Advice to Management

Employee education benefits are an easy way for Boeing employees to stay happy and help the company even more - why not talk to recent graduates of programs and see where they can help the company? Instead, graduates who can't find fitting jobs at Boeing end up leaving or being frustrated at the lack of opportunity.

    Pros

    nobody expects you to work more than 40 hours a week. If you are just looking to cruise through life and make a decent living its not a bad place. They used to have an awesome tuition program for continuing education, but it has been scaled back.

    Cons

    Not challenging, be prepared for layers of systems engineering bureaucracy, I engineered nothing but paper work. The place is a sinking ship with uncompetitive products run by old fogies that think because the place was innovative in the 70's they can lay back and relax. Non-compete government contracts are the cash cow that keep this place afloat, so managers are big customer butt kissers. definition of the military industrial complex

    Advice to Management

    You hired very bright people from the best schools for work that high schoolers could do. Expect more from people and challenge them technically. The company needs to take bigger risks and bring visionary ideas to customers instead of uninteresting baby steps.
