Does Boeing offer massages?

Pros

Good benefits and free coffee

Cons

Unless you are an executive you are expendable fodder. They claim how much they love veterans yet lay them off in droves and keep execs who do jack squat. They do not care about employees, do not listen to experts and people theying to do good things for the company. Toxic leaders and thenCEO is just an ax man to keep the money on the execs pockets. Diversity at all cost mind set. If you want a promotion you have to be related to an executive or have to find a new job elsewhere in the company. Managers look out for themselves only

Advice to Management

Listen to people who are trying to do the right thing. Stop offshoring support and giving jobs away to India

Does Boeing offer dental insurance?

Pros

Company overall offers good benefits (health, dental, child backup care, school tuition reimbursement, etc), reasonable work and life balance, semi comfortable work environment. In some states where racial diversity is broadly embraced such as WA, CA, OR, people from different cultures feel comfortable with each other and are open to share experiences and opinion. BCA and BGS encourage somewhat more open culture than BDS, reason is simple, BDS is defense sector, there is lots of red flags or rules on what can be shared or not.

Cons

Although public communication says company has hit rock bottom and is bouncing back, truth is this company is still on a downward spiral, it is struggling with rebranding. It is no longer a premium brand that people used to admire. Everyday customers complain about design defects, degradation in manufacturing and services quality, broken/ inadequate business processes, etc. Here is what a lot of people know… Even though on annual earnings call Boeing tries to paint rosy picture that 737 MAX is back to service operating well, 777X is in entry into service phase and 787 back to delivery is in progress, the truth is there are so many technical issues and commercial claims against these models initiated by customers. Hearing from customers, feel bad for them buying planes and services from Boeing, because they don’t really know what they are getting into until 5 years into service. Products integrity and reliability, service performance are not performing per contract. Airplanes are marketed inconsistent to how they perform. If it is not for duopoly reason (Boeing and Airbus dominating the industry), BCA would be bankrupt already due to disasters on 737MAX and 787. Sadly these events will not be the last time Boeing faces it, something else will come up… Also problem with Boeing internal bureaucracy is HUGE. Internal teams fight each other over who should own actions, they all push around saying that budget or resources constraint is prevalent. First line and senior management are hesitant to step up to take a lead unless executives get involved and give a marching order. This is a top down culture. Even though internal communication says we encourage people speaking up and want them be creative, share ideas, but truth is whoever owns the money speak.

Advice to Management

As many airline customers said public, we need big changes in management from top to first line manager.

Does Boeing have a pension plan?

Pros

Prestigious name, cool product, great training opportunities

Cons

No more pension, lots of retirees just return as consultants instead of passing on knowledge and say "that's how we've always done it", no real structure in raises/promotions--- you just have to know the right people

Does Boeing offer life insurance?

Pros

Great Insurance benefits, flexible and challenging environments, good pay, wonderful Retirement Benefits, Tax advantage accounts, and excellent Life Insurance options

Cons

Large company with too many chiefs and terrible intercorporate communication. Heavily political, the "good ole boy" system is prominent. Layoffs are always a factor. It is difficult to navigate the social landscape

Advice to Management

The size of the company means that change is generally slow and there is often an attitude from top to bottom of, "that's how we've always done it." Boeing has fallen behind in the industry; it is stagnant and political. The company does not support risk in the realm of creativity or change. Everyone is so busy jockeying for position and holding onto their empires that its incestuous and cannibalistic.
