Boeing Commercial is a good company but Boeing IRC is lacking in Worklife/Balance for contractors
Fabrication Specialist (Former Employee) –  Charleston, SCAugust 30, 2017
As a contractor there are no benefits offered through the company as to be expected. However, Boeing Commercial offers a great benefits package for employees. Work/life balance is lacking overall.

Contractors are required to do overtime and very often weekends. There is no guaranteed conversion to full-time status from a contractor status. Therefore, even if an employee works overtime and with great reviews, there is no guarantee of conversion.

Work load is tolerable however, the mandatory overtime for contractors may be overwhelming for some.

Moving from a fabrication position in an upwardly mobile manner is also very challenging.

Overall package for full-time Boeing employees is great. A lot of benefits.

Fabricator (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 29, 2017
They are too much about numbers and rushing into things before actually figuring it out. Everything in the company is a numbers game. Don't make enough money to live comfortably until after 6 years.

Not a bad place to work
Assembler C / production coordinator (Former Employee) –  Macon, GAAugust 29, 2017
Great place to work for a single person that doesn't mind relocating and dealing with layoffs and chasing a job. I would probably still work there if I had not been laid off due to plant closure.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Poor management

Student intern
Research Technology Intern (Former Employee) –  Long Beach, CAAugust 29, 2017
Enjoyed working here as an intern, but wasn't happy with the type of work I got. It was boring and repetitive and I wanted more out of the job. Other than that people were great.

Fun but demanding at the same time
Manufacturing Manager (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 29, 2017
Salaried employees work long hours. A lot of lazy people that managers overlook which puts stress and pressure on those that are hard workers. Hard dealing with union represented employees. Have to be careful. All and all, I enjoyed my time with the company.
Pros
Excellent salary and benefits
Cons
Too many people. Top heavy

Fast paced work enviroment
Prodution Test Technician (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 28, 2017
I enjoyed working for Boeing because it was a very diverse work environment. It was a very fast paced job that taught me a lot about aviation maintenance. I enjoyed working with fellow employees and customers. Management was very down to earth and worked very well with the lower employees. I think the hardest part of the job was rushing our work to meet unrealistic goals of production.
Pros
Free lunch on occasion and perks of discounts for multiple places
Cons
Unrealistic production goals

Good place to work
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Renton, WAAugust 28, 2017
Compensation and benefits were better than any other employer I have worked for. The company has a significant amount of resources and emphasizes professional development. It is a great place to be surrounded by intelligent people and learn.

Contractor
Exercise Physiologist (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 28, 2017
You come on as a contractor with "promise" of becoming a Boeing employee, but this is not guaranteed. As a contractor, you do not receive any benefits or paid time off. The pay is less than a Boeing employee as well because the contracting company takes 20-25% of your paycheck.
Pros
Flexible Hours
Cons
Lack of communication from management, no benefits, no PTO

Low Morale
Employee Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 27, 2017
The company shifted from being high morale with the Boeing Family to Cut throat environment.

The management was not trained well and did not show up in the office. They were nowhere to be found when something was needed.

The most enjoyable part of the job were the new technologies in automation and robotics.

Beaurocratic mess, some interesting projects, behind in technologies
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 27, 2017
Not much support for career development for engineers. Management out of touch, hands off and do not want to support. Dated/backwards IT policies and computing resources, out of date software etc. Treated just as another cog in the machine. Lots of stovepipe organizations and red-tape, waste more time and money in endless meeting cycles, far too many layers of approval.
Pros
Good engineering teams, some interesting projects
Cons
No support, no opportunity for career growth, red-tape, lack of resources

Watch Game of Thrones
Special projects member (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 27, 2017
Your career will go further if you pick up on political strategies from Game of Thrones then if you work hard. Big ideas only happen on power point. I've seen countless people steal ideas and make pretty PowerPoints that show data/results that are technically impossible but the 'leadership' viewing the PowerPoint are so far away from the truth of the actual production system that they don't know any better.
The wrong people get the career trajectory that you'd expect from a company that actually values 'meritocracy'.
this place is void of meritocracy.

Pros
Money
Cons
Doesn't seem to be a place to get experiense from.

Don't start at Boeing
Assembler Installer Structures B (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 27, 2017
Boeing has great pay and benefits but that is quickly going downhill with each vote as they phase out the union. There is no future with this company and no job security. The culture and atmosphere are dark and the morale is terrible. There are some good first line managers who care about their people but most management above that ruins anything they try to do. The company is sinking and it is no longer a hopeful and prosperous career. I attended college and worked hard and tried to advance my career within the company at no avail. Boeing does not care about your personal abilities. They care about numbers on paper, and that is what you are to them.
Pros
Pay, benefits, health coverage
Cons
Management, politics, morale, corporate management

Great wage and benefit package once you have been there long enough
NC Electronic Technician (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAAugust 27, 2017
Overall a great job once your wages get up to where they should be. Process of gaining pay in hourly ranks is painfully slow and vacation time takes years to get up to a month off per year.
Pros
Benefits and pay once established
Cons
Corporate decisions can be tough to take sometimes

High stress - reduced workforce - non-competitive salary
Supply Chain Analyst (Former Employee) –  Everett WAAugust 26, 2017
It is good to have a couple of years of Boeing work on your resume. The stress and lack of leadership is a problem. Millennials leave quickly and old folks are retiring or taking early retirement with a half years pay as incentive. The pressure of Airbus seems acute, but in the trenches you dont know if someone on high has a plan that will solve all the problems.

Not a place for advancement
Stress Analyst (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 26, 2017
There are so many positives about this company. The work-life balance is great, benefits are good, they invest into the development of their engineers with training and mentoring programs.

When it comes down to it though, employees really want to see their careers grow. They want salary growth and promotions to go with their increased capabilities and responsibilities. The company falls very short here. Despite well-defined requirements for promotions, they will change them arbitrarily. Instead of requiring performance at the next level, they might require performance meeting the description for two levels up.

Changed a skill code? Rather than having the view that it creates a more well-rounded engineer, they say that you're essentially starting from scratch. Note, this does not apply to external hires. I've seen engineers come in from totally unrelated industries/roles and pass experienced guys in a year, despite the experienced engineers much higher performance.

That is the main contention. Since the company does not value performance when it comes to raises/promotions, you basically have no control over your advancement. They kind of put you where they want, no matter how well you do. You can be the top performer in a group for years, and not move up relative to your peers in pay or level. It appears to have lead to a lot of burnout within engineering.

I'd recommend this company for people starting off. They'll train you and expose you to a lot of different areas. Then after a couple of years, go somewhere else, hopefully getting a promotion with
  more... the move. If you choose at a later time, come back to Boeing, hopefully with another promotion.  less
Pros
Employee development programs, training, mentoring, benefits
Cons
Promotions/raises can be very difficult

Not the same company as 10 years ago
Systems Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 25, 2017
Boeing has, as any company over time, evolved and changed. Cultural shift have been more Progressive, but at the expense of quality workmanship. Layoffs are more common, and the micro-management tendency has increased, while accommodating a more 'socially just' approach to candidate employees. It's a mixed bag.
Pros
Benefits were best of industry a few years ago.
Cons
Micro-Management Culture

TECHNICAL DESIGNER (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 25, 2017
Typical date is to review email and then check for events due or meetings scheduled. Work on current project by priority. Utilize data bases and different software packages to complete task. Always something new to learn. Management was open and available. Culture was hard working to meet deadlines with spurts of humor. Hardest part was the quick turn around and stress. Most enjoyable part was the people and the salary.
Pros
Benefits and salary
Cons
Layoffs
