    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Variety of work and diverse range of products and services. Decent job security.

    Cons

    Lack of established processes still in the UK causes ill discipline, rework and frustration. Excuse of being a new international entity will no longer be acceptable. Poorly led at all levels, too much focus on other projects rather than the core job. Pathetic ERP and MRP systems, how people can do their day job is beyond belief.

    Advice to Management

    Time to focus on the core job and develop into a mature business. Give people the right tools to do their jobs!

    Great benefits, nice people in the most part, good development opportunities if you are prepared to do the hard graft
