In-company training availability is endless and possibility of college training is now restricted but is available. If necessary then software /equipment will be available when case study provided.
Slow to respond change and deployment and over three months to sign contracts with too many clauses . / .1

Great Benefits, 401k Match 10% +2% at the end of the year, pays tuition up to 25k a year for masters, 12 weeks parental leave, 3 weeks PTO and all holidays off, some sites work 9 80's and have every other Friday off, health care is free for you and family if you choose that option. Bonuses for getting a pilots license and Boeing pays for most certificates or trainings outside of Boeing. Once your in its very easy to get other jobs at Boeing.
The pay is lower then other industries, bonuses and raises are hit or miss, harder to work remote then it used to be, most positions now are hybrid but you only get to work from home once a week. It is very hard to get promoted while staying in the same position. Most people have to move teams or jobs to get a raise.

Building skillsets and growing in my career has been my focus. You must go after what you are seeking within Boeing, but when you DO meet with you r leaders, they are very helpful in getting you the right mentors, etc.
Sometimes it can get difficult to get the guidance needed from leaders, especially if they themselves are new to their leadership role. It's also easy to get lots thrown your way without feeling as though you're being supported.

Some really great and incredibly smart people. The projects are interesting and meaningful. The schedules are very flexible as well.
Pay is embarrassingly low, and it's almost impossible to get promoted. Promotions are only dependent on how much budget they have and if it's the right time to promote, it has nothing to do with performance. Horrible organization and communication. There is barely any established communication between departments, you just need to "know people" to get anything done. Management has no idea what their team is working on and just cares about their own numbers.
- 2.012 Nov 2023Senior Intel AnalystFormer Employee, more than 3 years
Salary was good, in line with the industry; benefits were awesome, the BEST thing about the company. I met a lot of people from other departments (aircraft, space products) that were very happy. A lot of good, friendly people and extracurricular opportunities.
My division was HORRIBLE. Formerly an independent company which got acquired by Boeing, they kept their entire management structure which was, hmm, how best to describe it? Unscrupulous? Incompetent? Skirting the rules? Yes, all of those and more! Their underhanded tactics cam back to bite them, however, with a reduction in their contract due to poor quality…just fitting for such a poorly run division.

Great company, benefits, and insurance.
There are not too many downsides to this role. Progression is 6 years to reach max pay in your role grade. Each semi year until the 6 years you get guaranteed $.50. Wish it was split evenly throughout the 6 years.

10% on 10% 401K contribution 12 week parental leave Great PTO accrual ratee Paid master's degree
Due to current market conditions, Boeing has started eliminating WFH.

Good job security Work life balance is pretty reasonable. Overtime is available, but you don't feel forced to take it. Great 401k benefits
Not many work from home opportunities
