Boeing offers a breadth of experiences, but bureaucracy can be frustrating
Industrial Engineer (Current Employee) – Everett, WA – February 25, 2017
Because of its size, it's really easy to spend an entire career inside Boeing. I've had several jobs within the company and while there are similarities, no two are exactly alike in tasks.
The way they are all alike though, is the bureaucracy. Decisions tend to be pushed uphill and lots of signatures are needed before decisions are made. It can be really frustrating.
Since the company promotes internally for the most part, there aren't many with outsider perspectives.
Some industrial engineers get to apply their education, but it really depends on the group.
The good news is that the company recognizes this and changes are starting noticeable in some areas.
