    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great career growth and work culture. Management has a great ethic and drives to keep employees happy, safe and included.

    Cons

    Yearly cash bonus is quite small and the salary is average or below average. Speaking to HR for better compensation is often met with bureaucratic resistance even when you have more than enough qualification and experience to be moved up a band. Salary is leaning much more to the management jobs than technical.

    Advice to Management

    Review the salary and bonus structure and then Boeing would be the full package for any employee.

    Pros

    Incredible network and exposure to amazing programs.

    Cons

    Being a huge business is always going to be a challenge. Id say that can be an adjustment rather than a con.

    Many great engineers, with lots of interesting problems that you can work on. Can have high degree of autonomy depending on supervising manager.

    Work to improve the performance of the poorest managers.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some groups support mentoring program. Some opportunities exist for training. Some good and smart people.

    Cons

    Old tools. Terrible processes. Bad Morale. Political environment. Indecisive management. Complicated contracts with the customer. Bosses are managers, not leaders. Wrong skillsets hired. IT SOE is buggy. Doesn't leverage Boeing USA services. Lipservice to values. Management undercut engineering estimates and projects run over. No paid overtime. Starting to lean a bit too left-wing/PC with their social campaigns. Organisational changes happen regularly. Lack of clear responsibility (RAA). Slackers can hide. Poorly implemented performance management.
