    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.

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

    Pros

    - 38 hour working week.
    - Some interesting projects.
    - Some genuinely passionate and committed people.

    Cons

    - Hopeless IT infrastructure. The company lacks the basic tools needed to compete in the 21st century.
    - Mindless bureaucracy.
    - Layers of mediocre senior and middle management (especially in SCM). Management is purely transactional and lacks any form of imagination. Very cliquey.
    - Endless internal churn and structural change (one every six months on average).
    - Talented people will always confront the mediocre ceiling.
    - Never before have I worked in a company where people take pride in not answering their telephone or responding to emails.
    - Blame shifting and avoidance culture prevalent.
    - Social campaigns border on the ridiculous at times.
    - IJC focus on managers versus experts is doing a lot of damage. Managers are being appointed to run teams without the faintest knowledge or understanding of what their teams do or need to do.

    Advice to Management

    - Clean out middle and senior management. Just because you have been at Boeing for 15 years does not make you good at your job.
    - Stop making excuses and fix your IT and corporate infrastructure. Companies with a fraction of your budget can do it, so why can't Boeing?
    - Stop drinking your own bathwater. Boeing does not always make the best products and the customer doesn't always love us.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance and generous annual leave. Pay is well within average and a day at work is more laid back but can be very busy. Interesting projects and employees are all very technical and degree holders of their respective domains.

    Cons

    Career opportunity is very limited and its hard to envision your future within the company because they don't foster talent pools. It's very difficult to change bands which equates to no promotion. No job security. You get an utter impression that employees are less valuable and just a number that are easily replaceable. Practices are not to a level of expectations for a huge company. All these resulting to very high attrition rate.

    Advice to Management

    Be more approachable and open to your employees. Loyalty is the best and most attractive asset of a work environment. Be more creative as much as your employees do.

    Pros

    Incredible network and exposure to amazing programs.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, free coffee. thats about it

    Cons

    Over worked, Do more than you are paid for, HR work for project management, Jobs for the boys, your skill aren't taken into account for promotion its how you interview. No career advancement with IJC

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads in, listen to SME's or they are all going to leave like me. Stop hiring mates for management positions that have no experience as managers

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

    Poorly executed performance management. High degree of variation between managers. Approximately 10% of workforce is disengaged.

    Advice to Management

    Work to improve the performance of the poorest managers.
