Fort Walton Beach- Company has gone downhill he last 10-12 years, employee oriented company before is now worshipping the dollar, layoffs due to Gunship program going away has made itna dog eat dog atmosphere. Employee and company integrity has dived to extreme lows in attempts to look good for bosses and the government. Anything that negatively impacts the Defense part of Boeing has and will continue to affect this site, such as the failure of the KC-46 program. Management has been taken over by Oklahoma City and St. Louis corporate minded people, all about the bottom line at the expense of the employees. Mistakes are covered up out of fear of being fired and personnel who make them and if found out are ridiculed by people trying to look good to everyone else. Professionalism is low with employees feeling they could lose their job any moment. Work there could be transferred to St. Louis or Oklahoma at any time, site isn't considered a major Boeing site anymore. Employee perks don't exist anymore along with decent raises. Pay cannot be discussed between employees so you can't compare your pay to improve it. Not a union site, so you aren't protected.

Fear and intimidation. Constant harassment. Constant protection of those in 'the club' and targeting those who know how to get it done the right and ethical way. I am a manager and it's daily. There are so many here who don't contribute or know nothing bit they are yrs men and go far.

The newest batch of execs are either scarred of their jobs or follow along behind some of the highest in fear they will too be cut. We are striving for affordability and next generation performance, but The way to do it is to box those that make it happen.

Young talented engineers are leaving in droves because they see the dismal state of the business, Nd the company can't figure out why. Across the board the mediocre thrive while deflecting their issues to those that are doing the work.

You used to be able to bring ideas to the table. Now if you even comment, you are a roadblock. You can't even point out a stupid idea, tpu are expected to salute the glad and follow like a lemming while talking about your nonexistent leadership skills.

Oh yeah, someone above mentioned females and glass ceilings. It's prevalent throughout the business.

High Stress environment from management onto hourly employees. They are concerned with numbers, job count. Employee is Never a priority. No problem solving skills from management. Ethics from management is ZERO. Management is aware of the "broken process" and do nothing to improve in areas that need it.
As long as you show up, you are a star employee. If you choose not to complete your work... Management will ask the competent employees to "help"/cover their work. Never dealing with the true issues at hand.
