    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 or HRBP professionals.

    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 have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Many opportunities. Development happens as part of the process when you look for opportunities to grow and evolve your capabilities. Peer to peer support is amazing at Boeing.

    Cons

    Some Sr. Managers are allowed to succeed on the backs of their employees and first line managers and are not challenged. There are instances where this happens over time and the Sr. Manager has significant turnover (chewing through their direct reports). Executives need to actively engage to ensure this does not happen.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of first line managers.

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

    Pros

    Incredible opportunities across many divisions; building airplanes; good salaries and benefits; Great opportunity out of college to gain industry experience.

    Cons

    1. Executives / Senior Managers stay on average 2 years in one position; some willing to make a difference, others go with the flow and won't make ripples to change what is wrong 2. Annual performance review system drives subjective ratings, rankings that must fit into a curve with teams balanced from lowest to highest (someone has to take the low score) 3. Many retired-in-place employees

    Stabilize your leadership teams, show your teams more appreciation if your going to continiously designate them to work OT
