    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 4 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 20 years

    Pros

    Learn and help grow an awesome aerospace and defence business

    Cons

    Complex workload, conflicting expectations, intrigue.

    Articulate clearly your requirements; support and understand those that perform them and strive to meet your and your customers' expectations.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Technical depth in the company is phenomenal, and training (if your K level mgr will approve it) is high quality and plentiful.

    Cons

    Unless you are a software engineer or working at Ann St you'll be producing paper. Lots and lots of paper. The most technical thing a hardware engineer will do is write the statement of work for the numpties in subcontracts so they can go and pay someone else to do the work. Unstable structure with the exec team playing musical chairs continuously. Big aviation focus in all the PR material and very little mention...

    Advice to Management

    Rationalise the mandatory AU and US training. "Guarding our homeland" is a pile of garbage to Aussie employees - it ain't our home. Outsource the HR department. No way the company will grow with that level of incompetence in hiring and responding (if ever) to external applicants. If you can't get rid of IJCS at least give the staff meaningful job titles, just like you have for the managers and executives.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 6 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...

    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 for more than 4 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...

    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.

      Incredible network and exposure to amazing programs.

      Cons

      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

      Pros

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

      Cons

      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.
