    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent 401k match, Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Below market compensation, lack of short-term opportunities for growth

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate level 1-3 analyst compensation. Most new hires fresh out of school last 1-2 years before getting a significantly higher offer for an identical role elsewhere.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    401k match is good compared to other companies

    Cons

    - Extremely low pay compared to the location of the company (Seattle area) -no stock bonus for non-management employees - very low annual bonus ( around 5% of salary) - unmotivated people/coworkers - VERY slow pace - surrounded by people who aren't passionate about the company/work but just there to take the paycheck - average age group of employees in the late 40's to 50's - not the favorable culture for... people in their 20s

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good, but not as good as they used to be

    Cons

    No leadership and no opportunity for advancement unless you’re best friends with someone that can help you.

    Advice to Management

    This company is a horrible place to work. It pretends to value employees but the only people to get promoted are friends and relatives. Its not about what you know but who you know. The whole concept of promoting based on gender and race is very much alive. It’s outrageous the lack of leadership and the inability to finish anything. Managers attend meetings nonstop just to look busy.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Health Insurance Retirement Flexible Work Schedule (For IT) Advancement Opportunity (Level 1 to Level 3 within 3 years - depends heavily on how much your manager is willing to fight for your promotion)

    Cons

    Slow Moving Management will determine your opportunities- finding a good one is tough Most managers are more worried about their own careers, and not yours

    Advice to Management

    Weed out bad management that does not fight for it's people. Give more opportunities for advancement from within - the Analytics Information Management organization laid off all of its managers and re-hired from external because they lacked the skill set that was wanted. Training them would've been a better option - this created a horrible culture in the organization.

    Cons

    A lot of local talent and low turnover means limited career progression opportunities without relocating,

    Advice to Management

    Maher sure your leaders that you bring from other sites don’t try to fix what isn’t broken.

    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Steady 9-5 supporting work life balance. Vanpool benefits. Free step counter. Health benefits and 401k are ok. Amazing learning opportunities to understand what you DO NOT want in a company culture.

    Cons

    Low Salary not at all competitive with the marketplace. If you are young and work hard do not expect to climb the ladder quickly, you will be told that the dinosaur of a company will promote you in the dedicated time frames they have set in order to level up. Do not expect raises or bonuses comparable to how much effort you have put into your work. Especially if you are working on a program that is not doing well,... you will get lumped into a bell curve that determines your performance. They completely lack the amenities of a decent company such as supplying tissues, office supplies, and water. If you would like filtered water pool you money together with coworkers and pay for it yourselves. As a woman working at this Good ol Boys Club was very frustrating. If you dress nicely (pencil skirts) you will be listened to in meetings, if you choose a pant suit you will be asked to take notes. I do not recommend working at Boeing if you are young and eager to learn. The world is your oyster don't take a steady 9-5 take the risk and jump in, you will be rewarded 10x over what the Lazy B will pay.

    Advice to Management

    Time to get with the present. Ya sure the engineering side is innovative, but if you do not have the modern infrastructure to support it you are going to lose the race. If you cannot retain young talent when the majority of your workforce is set to retire in the next 10 years you are lost. You cant sell young talent on "Steady jobs" "Good Health Benefits", the majority want competitive salaries. Why do you think... young people are so quick to leave you when they can go work for a tech company that will give then a 25k bump within a day? Ask your people what is important to them and listen! Invest in your workforce not just your product. Single isle planes are becoming cheaper overseas, cutting internal costs of office supplies is not going to make up the difference. You need to ditch the spreadsheets and model data faster. Understand that if you spend some upfront cost on modern technology for the business side you will become more efficient and be able to adsorb the work of those retiring without having to replace them. Work smarter not harder.

    Pros

    Good overall benefits package; work hours flexibility, access to many different types of personal support outside of work, casual dress code.

    Cons

    Stay connected to the right people or you will go nowhere. It is truly a “who you know” rather than “what you know” organization.

    Advice to Management

    Direction from the top never makes it down to the trenches. The “frozen middle” is alive and well, unfortunately.
