"It is a good company, with good compensation, but difficult to move up. You definitely feel like a # as opposed to a person, quite often."
"I have worked for Boeing the last 8 years. I have had many opportunities to be involved with other groups as well as projects to improve my skill and make workplace a better place. Boeing pays well. They also provide good work life balance in my opinion. However, in order to exceed expectation you would provide more than 100% of your dedication, which I think this is very typical to most companies. I worked with many good people but also a few that will need improvement."

"Very low marks in all aspects of upper level management. Creating roadblocks on production then requiring tremendous overtime hours to overcome their obstacles. Moving employees to unfamiliar parts of the plane and replacing that person unfamiliar as well. Moving people to other locations in Puget Sound because they can. It all seems to be an attempt to cause people to quit so they don't have to lay off. Extremely low morale."
"NIH, politics, good-ole-boy/girl, only if you do not need a career, only if you are a child of C.O."
"Good pay and benefits. Some good managers but mostly poor management. Some are very poor with very poor people skills. Also all mistakes are thrown under a huge spotlight with people having to explain to multiple managers, multiple times. It puts everyone on pins and needles and makes people not report mistakes."
"Boeing is a typical large company. Managers are interested in themselves, not employees, and lie rather than telling the truth. They promote their pet employees and ignore everyone else. They also lay off productive senior people to hire entry level people and charge their customers the same rate, which increases their profits."
"The overall company is good to work for. Slow into mgt ranks though... the good ole boy system alive and well."
"Good company and great career opportunity starting out. Slows down in management ranks though."
"Good company and I would recommend it to anyone entering in the job market."
"I am working for Boeing since Feb 1981, before that was in the US Navy. The majority of my time at Boeing I work in the mainframe side of programming, I maintain a database and did programming that publish the maintenance manual for all of Boeing airplanes. When the program was converted over to new system I had to learn ASP and Dream Weaver program on my own."
"Awful corporate environment."
"I worked at Boeing since 2007. It is a great company filled with great people. I enjoyed my experience. They had excellent opportunities to go to school and further one's education. I out grew my position and found it hard to move to another position."
"I love working and constantly improving myself and my processes to achieve the highest degree of quality in my work."
"Boeing is not a good place to be an IT person these days, especially in the Puget Sound. They're in the midst of outsourcing everything they can to kids out of school located in other locations in the US, as well as offshoring work to subs from India and Russia. The benefits are fantastic, but the long term job outlook is not good. Another thing to be aware of is the large bureaucratic inhibitors to bringing in leading edge technologies."
