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

    Pros

    You can have a lot of control over your work schedule and work from home periodically.

    Cons

    There's very little support from upper management to address problems. It's very difficult to get access to data and to get approval to use new tools or technologies. No one at Boeing as any sense of urgency so project drag on way longer than they need to.

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

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, big name

    Cons

    There is no investment in you as an employee. They can leave you in a niche for years without caring about your growth. There’s a large culture of stagnation and “we’ve always done it this way”. No real innovation happens. Another really glaring problem is the fact that they’ll never let you go, no matter how terrible of an employee you are. You can be a parasite who contributes nothing and still be on the payroll... as long as you keep your head down. There’s no long term vision. Upper management expects you to get things done but there’s not a culture of planning for the future so people’s jobs are less cluttered and less about fire fighting. Instead, there’s constant finger pointing and knee jerk reactions to problems that can be solved if leadership would only put the initial investment to implement technology or training that will contribute to long term growth and not just band-aids. It is truly a shame that a company with such a magnificent legacy is run this way.

    Advice to Management

    Be present for your employees. You’re getting paid manager rates for a reason.

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

    Pros

    Salary was above average as was bonus package and 401k and medical benefits.

    Cons

    Often abusive middle and upper management. First line were generally good people and competent. Company lacks vision and inspiration. Work, life balance often sacrificed for stupid reasons, nothing to do with creating product everything to do with Exec management ego. Career opportunities for young people, a good place to start but not to finish.

    Advice to Management

    Stow your egos and inspire your people to bigger and better things. Provide stretch goals that are realistic as constant failure is not a motivator and remember above all the product is what makes people proud.

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

    Pros

    Many different areas of the business including manufacturing, Software development, R&D, with business development in the commercial aerospace arena and the defense/government contracting arena. It's a big company, so there are "sweet spots" to be found and some exciting opportunities that provide interesting and engaging work.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to do more with diminishing resources, lots of attrition and years of layoffs make for a very high stress work environment. Also, very political. Too many levels of management. Many managers who succeed are just "yes" people who only care about how things look to their upper management. This environment contributes to very high turn over in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on increasing employee morale. Happy employees are more productive. Don't be afraid to get rid of bad leaders, but instead figure out how to do it. They are the number one reason people leave.
