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

    Pros

    1. LAID OFF - If you are a good employee you will always be busy. During layoff, Boeing will give you 60 day’s notice for you to find a job before they led you go. In fact, HR would help you find an internal job within the company. You would get immediate termination if you violate rules and policies. 2. RETIREMENT - Boeing pays 75% of your first 8% in addition they have a VIP (Voluntary Investment Plan) where they...

    Cons

    1. PROMOTION - Only when you self-promote. You have to move to another team or another state. Less than 1% gets promoted. 2. MANAGEMENT - They will always say there is no budget for promotion. They will grade you low in your performance to push you to your max. If you like to be criticized for your good work in a bad way, then you should be fine. 3. CULTURE - They say One Boeing! Unfortunately, it is not true. Each...

      Salary and benefits are very competitive. Workload is not strenuous. Flexible schedule is a huge plus. Employees take pride in their work and try to uphold the Boeing reputation.

      Change happens often and it is SLOW! Can take a while to move up, you have to pay your dues.

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

        Pros

        Industry leading pay and benefits. Largest aerospace company in the world. Lots of flexibility in assignments and projects. Good opportunities for continued education and career growth.

        Cons

        Often bureaucratic and inefficient. Senior leadership will work you to death if you let them. Advancement generally comes at the expense of your evenings and weekends.

        Advice to Management

        Streamline and flatten out. Get rid of the dead wood. Start thinking like more like a startup and less like a 100+ year old behemoth. Invest significantly more money in IRAD. Promote the best people possible and stop worrying so much about winning the next social justice award. The best companies promote the most talented people, period.

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

        Pros

        Pay is higher than average, good work life balance for some.

        Cons

        Managers treat employees like furniture, constantly changing from hiring to laying off, no control or say in decision making, lack of appreciation, competitive environment pits employees against each other, management is constantly off-shoring or contracting to foreign employees, lack of opportunity for advancement despite educational benefits.

        Advice to Management

        Include employees in decisions, get to know employees and show respect and appreciation.

( like patent / Publication in the same field). This is due to the fact that those leaders luckily got entry in the early phase at the Organisation ( Applicable only for Avionics team in Bangalore India)and now they are scared , if some one...
