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

    You get to work on, around, and with planes and their subsystems, and that is really cool. Being able to see how everything comes together, and all the work that goes in to certifying a plane is awesome.

    Cons

    Boeing is very slow to change. Then union attitude allows people to fight change tooth and nail, and do as little work as possible without giving a reason for them to be written up. Expect to use technology 10-30 years old at all times (in Flight Test Software). There was no time allocated to any project that was not precisely what my manager wanted done. Management seemed to want a scape goat more than anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Don't focus on finding someone to blame whenever anything goes wrong, focus on finding the cause of the problem and implementing solutions to those issues.
