    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boeing for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good benefits and incentives (If permanent) - Flexible in working hours, with a good work-life balance - Great work colleagues to work with and very helpful - Opportunities to work in different departments are always there - Various systems used for various Jobs, but main database system used, AMOS, is widely used in this industry, therefore can be advantageous if one has used this system prior.

    Cons

    - Location of Business Park is not the easiest to get when commuting by train - Local shops and restaurants are a little bit of a distance to get when going out for lunch. - System used, for this particular job title, in processing documentation can be quite clunky to use.

    I worked at Boeing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits, interesting work, good flexibility and work/life balance, some really nice people.

    Cons

    Very American centred with the culture that brings not being compatible with the UK’s workplace. Extremely bureaucratic to the point of mind-numbing. No real training opportunities and very limited progression, senior managers can’t even promote their own staff.
