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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits packages: Health, Dental, Vision, Life, 401k, 100% tuition reimbursement for continuing education, 2 week holiday break for Christmas/New Year, competitive salaries, exciting programs

    Cons

    Promotion budget is always slim, only a set # of employees can advance each year. But hiring budget is separate. So they will hire someone brand new, fresh out of school, no experience, before they will promote from within. Also, compression issues exist. New hires making more $ than existing employees at the same level.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the political performances (i.e. All Hands Meetings with Executive Leadership). They are a waste of time and take employees away from actual work. More importanly, fix the compression issue and the promotion budget issue or Boeing is going to continue to hemmorhage vital knowledge through the loss of mid level and experienced employees.
