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.

The people I worked with were excellent. As a Avionics Field Service Representative, I made 5 deployments on board USN Aircraft Carriers in 10 years. Working 12 hours on and 12 hours off for 6 months at a time.
Working under a contract you can be laid off many times.
Project Management Specialist, PMO office (Former Employee) – Huntington Beach, CA – June 24, 2016
I like everything about the company and nothing negative to report. Boeing is excellent place to work. The work is challenging, productive and rewarding. I had good working relationships with management and co-workers.
Supply Specialist (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 24, 2016
A degree is more important than experience. 80% of all new hires will be family members with no experience for job hired for. 95% of all jobs posted are already filled so mostly will be a waste of time applying. if possibly hired dont expect to move up within the company.
insurance and 401k
managment dont care about their employees, you are just a number to them.
Project Staff Analyst (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – June 23, 2016
I enjoyed working for the program, typically I managed the daily progress of each project. I maintained dashboard of daily engineering performance to the planned project. Notified managers and engineer of upcoming or delinquent jobs to be completed. My co-workers were a great team to work with, they were accepting of inputs and requirements that I may have needed completed in a timely manor. My managers were very supportive and helpful.
The Management at Boeing was excellent. They knew their job, as well as the employees jobs very well. If a problem was to arise about anything, they knew how to handle the situation. Most of them had been at Boeing for many years and knew the ins and outs of all areas.
Managers would walk around on a daily basis to make sure that you were doing your job correctly and that everything was safe. We had weekly meetings to let us know what was going on within our work area, as well as any changes the company was making or going to make.
The communication among the Managers and his/her employees was excellent. The shop had very little or no personnel problems, as the employees all rotated around and worked with everyone to get the jobs accomplished.
Great company, good benefits and excellent bonuses
The people and the work are great. More often than not it's an individual manager that creates an unhappy working environment for everyone.
Structural Assembly Mechanic, Assembly Electrician (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – June 19, 2016
I have learned so much about working and drilling metals, fixing items previously damaged by some means while in our hanger. I love working so the hardest part of the job for me is when I have nothing to do. I live to build and fix everything I can and have a ridiculous number of certifications to keep me from running out of work. The greatest joy is the final product being bought by QA and/or customer QA.
Electrical Installation Mechanic B (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – June 18, 2016
crew meeting every morning getting job work orders for the shift day learning different types of work ethics that co-workers have, i had good managers willing to help with any issues ,co-workers i consider a team member to work well together to get a job done , the hardest part nothing really always had some one to go . the most enjoyable part was the feeling at end of shift that i got my job done to the best of my ability and gave 100% of my skills and i am never afraid to ask questions
Manager, Manufacturing Engineering (Former Employee) – North Charleston, SC – June 15, 2016
I have a very high opinion of Boeing. The leadership at Boeing promotes inclusion, diversity, integrity, and innovation. The wok environment was very safe and pleasant. There was a degree of bureaucracy that is inherent with a large corporation.
