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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance with generous PTO and annoy to flex hours within a pay period. Insurance was cut back slightly, but is still top notch. 401(k) is one of the best programs in the nation.

    Cons

    Large and often bureaucratic; many "coasters" just there to collect a paycheck and nothing more, making change difficult and slow; driven by metrics, creating a lot of non-value-added work.

    Advice to Management

    Reward and promote Talent that executes and delivers results. Reduce non-value-added work for higher engagement and more lean operations.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good health benefits, easy to stand out in the crowd, large company offers broad access to resources and connections in the industry for training, travel and networking

    Cons

    Bureaucracy galore. Leadership can be short-sighted, and allows too much mediocrity to persist. The predominant employee base are lifers who don't like change and can barely use a computer. The best of them are well-intentioned but offer insignificant contributions; the worst of them are willfully ignorant or obstructionist.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in your employees isn't something you do just once or twice a year - lip service isn't good enough to retain high-performing talent.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Boeing's Learning Together Program can't be beat. 100% tuition coverage for continued education without any hoops to jump through.

    Cons

    Very rigid with many requirements to fulfill on even the simplest of procurements but the requirements are described so poorly it's unbelievable.

    Advice to Management

    If everything is a priority then nothing is a priority.

    Pros

    I enjoyed learning on every position I held at the Boeing Company.

    Take the opportunity to be a mentor. In addition, and when you are ready to step up and return jest and help mentor someone else.

    Its important to take a Human Relations course to effectively manage employees effectively. The mentors were awesome.
