    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, safety culture, honest and upfront people, talent stays on, very capable and competent workforce, good salary, overtime, career opportunities.

    Cons

    Needs more diversity. The majority of the workforce is male. Senior management needs to be less conservative and more open to ideas.

    Be less conservative

    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Professional Organisation
    Good working environment
    38 hrs working week
    Employee incentives bonus payment
    Morning teas to celebrate special events
    Flexible working hours
    Variety of opportunity

    Cons

    Feels like 90% are male (white mostly) and all the female are in HR, PA or Accountant/Finance.
    Lots of ex-military where the culture reflects that.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a job.
    It might suit the slow and steady types *if* you are in the right project/department. If you get to assemble aeroplanes it might be a good job. However wouldn't advise to waste your time stalling your career here if you are a software developer for example.

    Cons

    Overall a low point in my career and life.
    Endless boring pointless corporate meetings.
    Endless corporate indoctrination/propaganda.
    Well below average working conditions (very cramped, noisy, uncomfortable office building).
    Old fashioned and American-centric culture.
    Not suitable for certain career paths.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Their management or GlassDoors' management?

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay conditions are great and the working conditions are very comfortable. They provide you all your safety needs physically.

    Cons

    All communications from management to production is very poor, the overall morale in the workplace is very low and the employees feel like they are just a number not people. Some of the operational business decisions are only made with facts and figures and without human aspects.

    Despite their attempts to convey that they looking after their employees and are doing the best to provide opportunities for people to gain experience in other departments is only a front. Due to budget constraints and depending who is pushing their agenda whether it comes from a quality or financial perspective, management would rather keep headcount numbers down and put greater stress on its support staff and departments.

    Advice to Management

    This company has been around for a long time and for any culture change to occur it will have to come from top down. In the lower levels of the company, employees have no other choice but to do want they have been told to do even if they feel like the are being not treated fairly.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Very structured approach to the development process adds to quality of work produced.

    Cons

    Can sometimes have too much documentation which can slow down development

    Advice to Management

    None. From what I've seen Boeing management seem to be doing a very good job and should continue to do what they're doing.
