"They offer a lot of opportunities to move up, but that is also contingent on leadership in your department. Some are impartial and will help you develop if you show promise and drive. Others will only help you if you are in their inner circle."

"You need to be your own advocate and find sponsorship to succeed. There's a lot of "boys club" mentality to it at times. Strong female leadership in IT, great mentorship, but that doesn't extend into the fellowship programs. "

"Don't bother. The company hasn't figured out how to deal with the problem leaders who are the source for the failing culture and therefore way too many teams have become dysfunctional and even toxic. Even if you find a great manager, there are so many re-orgs that you can't count on good leadership to last."

"Your experience and opportunity for growth is entirely dependent on the culture of your function and site. Some functions offer flexibility with working remotely and hours, others offer none. It seems to be the luck of the draw. Well-behind the curve in terms of benefits for family leave and flexibility for working parents."

"Boeing is a typical brick and mortar large company. Things can move painfully slowly. Suggest reading current events about Boeing and then decide if this is the best career option for you. "

"Boeing provides benefits per law and social pressures. As far as promoting women, there does not seem to be any internal drive to do so other than for compliance reasons, or because other companies are publically doing so and they must respond. Boeing recently made a commitment to diversity...but that's it. They made a commitment, no plan. "

"Speak up and don't assume your good work will speak for itself. You could be knocking it out of the park with your performance and deliverables, but unless you track and report that good work, it will likely go unnoticed, or worse unappreciated and uncompensated. If you're working more and producing more, ask for more!"

"Women are slowly starting to become more prevalent in the leadership ranks "
"Boeing supports diversity. Be prepared to work quite a few hours if you work closely with production. The leadership focus is cost reduction and competitiveness. Headcount is very thin on purpose. If you take pride in your work and want to make progress on projects, you can feel overwhelmed. Very bureaucratic."
"The old boys club is alive and well and women have a tough time in some places."

"Look elsewhere. This is not a forward-looking company - very slow to 'turn the ship'."
"The company has antiquated policies that prevent promotions for high performers. Promotion decisions must be approved by management chains in different states, so your network must be strong enough to reach far and wide across the US."
"You need to make it known that you want to move up in leadership and people will help you. Do not be quiet."

"Boeing is slowly acknowledging the need for a work-life balance. "
"More work when you come back from maternity leave. There are pumping rooms in every building but depending on location, some book faster than others. 5 weeks 80% STD which doesn't run concurrently with FMLA bonding leave. Total comp is not reflective of qualifications and contribution. No growth opportunity for Minorities. Bureaucratic and political!"
"Don't work here especially as Minority. They low-ball you and there is no progression. You get 5 weeks of partial pay for maternity leave and will most likely come back to a different job with a bad boss that gives you crazy amount of work. Stay away "

"As with all companies, your experience will vary by manager and team. I am fortunate that my team of twelve members has a fairly even distribution of men and women (seven women and five men) and our manager (male) tries to judge us objectively based on our performance, skills, and experience. Throughout the company, there are many women in VP and senior manager positions. There can still be more female leadership and diversity as the CEO is male and there is only one female among the next top three highest ranking positions. And all are white. Parental leave benefits are average. Employees still must use disability benefits for time off for childbirth. The culture here also discourages sabbaticals or leaves of absence for anything other than medical issues. There is still some derogatory language against women present in the workplace but it is very rare. "

"Being in such a big company, there are a lot of differences depending on what group/part of the company you are in. Overall the company culture is delayed of where it should be however, so join at your own risk. Look to be a part of organizations where diversity is already present, and you'll likely have a better time. "

"Women can and do succeed at Boeing; I have never felt at a disadvantage or disrespected because of my gender. "
"Boeing culture is based on a male-dominated, 30 year old government/defense culture. Like government/defense Boeing is very, very slow to change. Boeing's ads and marketing try to paint a different picture but it is simply lip-service and image building. I worked at Boeing for about 10 years. Only males were in leadership and defining roles. Women were simply the worker-bees. My significant contributions to the company were belittled, dismissed or accredited to male co-workers who had close-relationships with the good-old-boy management team. I met and heard similar stories from many, many women while I was there."
"Women were treated very fairly. Though upper management was mostly male, I never felt they treated women different than men who worked for them."
"I was a new mom when I joined the company. Pumping was a huge challenge. The campus I was on was big and the it took about 20 minutes (one-way) to get to the nearest mother's room. I ended up trying to book conference rooms in my building or pumped in the restroom. Difficult for women in leadership to balance work and family with demanding hours."
