    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good, friendly people, that’s about it I’m afraid.

    Cons

    Depends on which team you are in and which business unit. The US side of the business is totally different. I have found the culture in the UK to be one of fear of loosing your job, 3 rounds of redundancy in the past 12 months. Lack of direction from the leadership team, who appear in experienced in growing a business and how to prevent further redundancies. Everything is driven by cost and not what is always right for the customers. Constantly feel like you are under the microscope in terms of time keeping and what you are working on, (depends on which team you are in) and not although working from home is possible it’s frowned upon by the old guard. Often giving you mundane tasks to do as they react to request from another manager rather than challenge and understand the value. Don’t often listen to the experience, qualification and knowledge of the work force, they think they have the answers.

    Leadership ask for openness and honesty but if you raise anything you are shot down and they don’t like to hear it.

    Leadership team need to lead by example.

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture of trust and flexibility across all teams. You may need to change more of the leadership team and managers, bring in outside experience.

    Create a culture of stability, we are proud to work for Boeing but want the reassurance you have a clear strategy, business change is key but how you manage it is vital and currently it’s fairly poor, hence a higher churn in staff.

    Invest in technology to support your staff, look at what other successful organisations are doing, Apple, AWS to name a few, and give the teams the tools.

    Lead by example, roll your sleeves up and get stuck in, you need to support your work force instead of demanding more and more without investing.
