Flight Operations Specialist (Current Employee) – Leesburg, VA – December 4, 2015
A typical day consists of monitoring telemetry on 72 on orbit satellites. Satellites can have major anomalies that require smart and direct intervention to safe the satellite and return the service to the customers for Iridium. While assuming the duties of Mission Director, critical decisions are made and implemented in a precise and timely order. My Direct Reporting Manager sits next to me which keeps my personal performance at a high level in all situations of anomalies or normal maintenance operations. The co-workers that I have the pleasure working are highly intelligent college grads from various engineering fields. The rotating shifts and extended work hours make this job particularly difficult sometimes. Recovering the satellite during a highly technical anomaly is the most rewarding part of the job. Knowing that you saved military men and women during times of conflict with impeccable satellite communication is quite an amazing feeling.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – February 10, 2016
The job is subject to weekly and monthly reporting cycles. Schedule status updates are due Fridays each week for input into Boeing systems for review the following Tuesday. Cost and schedule reports and charts are generated weekly. Weekly program reviews are conducted either on a Weds afternoon or Thursday afternoon to discuss presentation data and review status issues. The meeting formats are standard and expectations are understood across all functional teams. The degree of support by 1st level management of these meetings can vary considerable unfortunately. Considerable effort goes into the preparation of the meeting but the importance management gives to the reviews can vary.

Market based affordability targets has forced Boeing to make continuous reductions in the there defensive segment workforce.
After three years of service, or the equivalent work experience from a similar company, Boeing will pay for your education while you work full time. I think Boeing is a good company to work for, but keep in mind this is a cyclical business, so be prepared to explore employment elsewhere if the business model goes through a lull.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Huntington Beach, CA – February 6, 2016
Boeing is a great place to work - enjoyed my job, the folks I worked with. They had great benefits. The hardest part of my job was the commute - 5 1/2 hours per day...however it was my choice to work there so nothing to complain about. I have maintained friendships with co-workers.
Great place to work for although many levels of management can make it difficult at times
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – February 5, 2016
Learn something new everyday and expect change all the time. Lots of opportunities to work at many different roles in the company. Opportunities for management can be difficult if you do not have the right network. Depending what program you work for, work varies from relax to very stressful.
DEVICE TECHNICIAN III (Current Employee) – Wichita Falls, TX – February 4, 2016
You really cannot complain about a job that has great medical coverage for a young soldier and 3 square meals a day. Obviously pay could have been better, but since room and board were covered it could have been worse.
Great Job, excellenent people, and job satisfaction.
Regional FSR for the US Army CH-47D/F (Current Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – February 4, 2016
Great company to work for with excellent benefits and works with employees to help accommodate changes in work schedule if possible. Great people to work with, which makes working with the company that much better. I would continue doing this job until retirement if the Government could continue to fund it. Great satisfaction from helping out the US Army!
Operations Accountant (Former Employee) – Ridley Park, PA – February 3, 2016
Boeing is a great place to work that affords the employee opportunities in a current position as well as ability to rotate into other positions within the company. Boeing offers internal training and encourages furthering education at accredited establishments.
Boeing places their employees into positions best suited to their abilities and skills.
Co-workers were professional and had the best interest of the department in daily activities.
Background Investigator (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – February 2, 2016
My typical daily tasks are screening all the new applicants that are selected by recruiters. I review resumes, Boeing profiles, and determine if the applicant is qualified based on the information they provided. I have a great team who work hard to meet deadlines and TAT.
Staff Analyst IV (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – February 1, 2016
A once great company that has lost it's way. From the elimination of employee pension plans, steep decline in insurance coverage and shipping jobs to low cost areas, the Boeing Company is proving more and more that they no longer care about their employees.
Slow to react; Resists moving into the future; Opposed to virtual employees
Quality Systems Specialist (Current Employee) – Everett, WA – February 1, 2016
Boeing is a big company and it's easy to lost track of people. It's enraging for people like me to watch so many people in the company get away with doing little to nothing and even though we're not union, it seems impossible to get let go. Very easy to coast by. You'll get a decent pay, and great benefits but job satisfaction is low, morale is almost non existent and lay offs are cyclical.
Systems and Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 1, 2016
Working for The Boeing Company, contracting with NASA on the International Space Station (ISS) project was the most interesting job. I learned so much about the ISS and was able to meet some of the astronauts.
I got some NASA collectibles such as astronaut autograhphs, posters, and ISS products.
