Program Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ridley Park, PAApril 12, 2018
I liked working for Boeing. The type of business is not run like others businesses. They have to lay off people based on the production, I'd rather work very hard where I am appreciated.

Great job, but with complacency culture. People forget how good they have it there.
Inspector Assembly and Installation B (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAApril 11, 2018
Production is indeed schedule driven, so challenge exists to quality.
It's maintained fairly well overall, with occasional exceptions.
Because of the good wages, the Company's main objective is to flush out incompetent workers, but has a difficult time doing so, due to the protection of the Union. Workers need Union protection, and that protection keeps dwindling over the years. The problem is that some workers do not deserve that protection, but harbor a victim mentality. Such cases embitter management; also the higher people go in Mgmt, the more isolated they become from reality and the practical aspects of schedule vs quality.
There seems to be an inordinate amount of middle management, and when managers make major errors, they're shifted to another location, or even another region if they're being protected by Upper Mgmt.
Many Mid-Upper Mgmt positions would be eliminated if Donald Trump were CEO.
Pros
Pay is excellent; benefits good, but Company keeps chipping away at them.
Cons
Overtime is spread to entire teams, which breeds resentment from OT hounds & 40 hr people alike.

Large, slow moving company
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAApril 11, 2018
Though the company provides a somewhat competitive salary for the northern Seattle area, the size of the company lends to structural issues that propagate throughout the work culture. The size of the company lends to the need for many layers of management (apparently), but few managers have training outside of their specific area of influence. As a result, management of employees, focus on maintaining motivated employees, and other non-measurable aspects of management are not rewarded or taught. As a result, work-life balance and overall work culture suffer as long as the whims of managers to appease other managers are met.

Meh
Business & Planning Analyst (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAApril 11, 2018
Management is the biggest issue, middle aged men good ol boys who don't like diversity or even know how to spell it.
Rarely do you have a good one that can fight for you.
The women have to fight so hard to get into management and they really aren't respected.
Don't let all the company feel good words fool you. Managers can get away with murder and will make or break an employee.

Start evaluating your managers Boeing!
Cons
Overworked, meetings to have meetings, management bad

Great place, merging of the old with the new
Sr. Product Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAApril 10, 2018
Overall Boeing is great to work at. I have exciting challenging work, compensation and overall benefits are great.

Challenges - Boeing is a legacy company, therefore if you are in high tech and expect things to be very agile and nimble you will be disappointed. Boeing is changing and embracing this so pockets of the company are fast paced and fun (my group) but then you run into legacy and there can be conflicts. Not a downer, but something to be aware of.

Great place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Auburn, WAApril 10, 2018
Being an Adminstrative Assistant for a Senior Manager, 11 superviors and support 110 employees could be stressful but also very rewarding. I would process payroll, set up travel for Senior Management and Supervisors, prepared presentations, maintained and scheduled conference rooms, typed up memos and maintained my managers schedule, set up her meetings and conference calls with upper management and staff.
Pros
Positive work environment
Cons
none

Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 9, 2018
The company itself is a great company, Management not so much! I had a 2 1/h hour commute there was no flexibility to work remotely. The benefits are great and the work was challenging but management was not so great.

Unsecure and Cut throat!
Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic Avionics (Former Employee) –  MarylandApril 9, 2018
Unsecure and Cut throat! You work for union, not Boeing. Management works for Boeing. You are IAM!!!
Do not step on other toes. Do not go against management.
Use your union rep for everything.
Expect to wait in line behind ALL the seniority, and the Will let you know who the are.

Accountant II (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOApril 9, 2018
Boeing is typical company in my opinion. Depending on leadership the focus changes. The constant is change. Some of the change does not make since and at times upper management does not flow down items well.
