    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for 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 worked at Boeing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Remuneration is slightly above average compared to other Defence sector employers

    Cons

    There is a disturbing culture of systemic workplace bullying and intimidation. Everyone knows about it, especially in the Finance group and “on site” aircraft maintenance. · Senior managers are “glass-jaws” and insist on one-way dialogue. None of them are interested in listening, let alone taking on board fair and reasonable criticism. · Outside appointments are treated as a threat by senior... management. Consequently, there are no chances of promotion – just endless sideways moves. Also, there are rarely any new ways of thinking or improving on hopelessly outdated and bureaucratic processes. · Almost all executive level managers have no experience whatsoever outside of BDA. They got their jobs by merely being present rather than actually doing a good job and bringing in fresh ideas. · Absurdly bureaucratic processes, which are considered to be an embarrassment by their customer (eg, a simple commercial letter can take up to 2 weeks to get signed and released) · Extremely risk adverse in a commercial sense, notwithstanding that none of these commercial risks are ever likely to eventuate. · The executive leadership team seem to think that all their problems can be solved through biennial reorganizations. In reality, none of these reorgs have ever achieved any positive outcome. · Rather than looking to bring in fresh eyes from outside the company, BDA is happy to recycle the same poor-performing project managers. · HR group is universally incompetent. They take pride in not communicating with candidates, and seem at peace with their inability to maintain employee confidentiality. They enable the bullying by not doing anything to actually fix it at a cultural level. The staff turnover for this group is alarmingly high, yet nobody in the executive team seems to think there is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    You need to tear down the HR group, and rebuild it from the ground up using fresh eyes from outside BDA. · External appointments are a good thing! Welcome them and tap into their experience and fresh ideas. · Stop doing pointless reorgs that achieve absolutely nothing in the long run. · You have a serious bullying problem. Just because you’re the only one who doesn’t realise it, doesn’t mean... it’s not there.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    38 hour work week with possible 9 day fortnight

    Cons

    Management promote a toxic culture within the production team in particular. I have seen multiple people crying at work due to the pressures imposed by management. There is no trust and management don't care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    I know concerns have been raised about certain individuals but there has been no action taken. Listen to employees when they tell you something is wrong here and live the values you espouse instead of tolerating managers who create toxic cultures.
