Pros & Cons

  • Fantastic team and work environment for the most. Also, the company itself has a good reputation which will open a lot of doors.
  • There is a real team culture here at Boeing. Employees really are put first which in turn delivers a better quality product that makes you proud to wear a Boeing uniform or badge.
  • Work culture, cool project, well-funded.
  • Company and workplace culture, type of work focuses on using technical skills and experience, learning opportunities, career advancement.
  • The flexibility around working hours.
  • Progressing your technical skills is a challenge as once you prove competence in something it is possible to be held working on something for too long. It is hard to be allowed/supported in pulling away and move on to new exciting challenging things.
  • There can be times where it feels like you're drinking water from a fire hose to absorb all the information required to do your job. But with appropriate communication to your supervisor, time will be given to allow you to catch up and learn.
  • The opportunities for career progression are limited.
  • Corporate red tape, supporting departments hindering the engineering team's ability to complete their tasks.
  • Lots of bureaucracy, paperwork, internal politics, unnecessary meetings and processes. A hyper-sensitive corporate mentality of political correctness.

Career Prospects
You have to apply for an opening on another project. There is no concept of a "promotion", except for the end of the graduate program. There are only roles, for which you are allowed to compete with the entire company, if they become available.

Corporate Social Responsibility
There is REACH and STEM and the Social Club. If you are involved in one of those you find out about a few activities. Unfortunately, there isn't all that many networking opportunities for other like-minded industry companies.

I have a bit of freedom, I'm usually given a large task to work towards in the way I see fit. Still plenty of support around if I need it.

Management
My manager is an amazing person who always shows compassion, leadership, and generosity. I am privileged to work for him. Sometimes though, it can be very hard to get time with him, be it one-on-one for a how's-it-going kind of catch up, or even for attention to your work. This can be really challenging at times, and has its consequences.

It depends on the team you're in, but there are some informal and informal training courses available, some of which are good. More access to informal courses would be good.

Work Hours
Flexible about start/finish times, but it still needs to be 8 hours a day. Sometimes it's a bit more if there's work to be done. Also get an RDO every month which is awesome.

More talk than action. Can't affect the bottom line, after all.
