    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Excellent compensation package, current technology, large budget for training & education, practice lean principals, excellent safety programs.

    Cons

    Unions rules production activity. Manufacturing manager's hands are tied and are not given the authority to manage production, quality, attendance and disciplinary concerns. HR and Senior Manufactuing management cowards to union and disciplines managers who posses integrity and try to do the right thing. Most HRBPs don't last long in this toxic environment. I would not recommend this business to front line management...

    Advice to Management

    More support to your front line manufacturing managers. You tend to lose the ones who have the integrity to challenge the current culture. You can't train integrity, only support it.

    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Size of company provides plenty of opportunities to try new positions and locations.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and top heavy. While there are great leaders within the company, many today have achieved their position based on political savvy rather than leadership ability. With that in mind the review process for any decision is very slow and time consuming as every layer of management (and there are many) wants an opportunity to review each and every recommendation and/or briefing package. By the time...

    Advice to Management

    If I thought I'd live to see a day when you were more focused on the future of the company than the current stock price and/or your own career advancement, I'd be happy to recommend Boeing as a place to work. In the meantime, I'll simply encourage people to consider buying stock, however look for employment elsewhere.

    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Huge employer with very good benefits and fair pay practices. Tons of resources, tuition reimbursement, excellent 401k, etc.

    Cons

    In any huge company there are some great leaders and some awful managers. Be careful to research the specific department and people you will be workin for.

    Advice to Management

    Executive leadership can easily lose touch with the work groups. They would be better served to develop trusted advisors from the rank and file to help them better understand which middle managers are worth their weight in gold and which are full of hot air.
