Toxic Culture
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Amberley QLD7 June 2019
I have seen the good and the bad being involved in many projects. My most recent experience at Amberley in the ACEA team showed me the worst of this company.

Management have created a culture where employees feel they cannot speak up for fear of reprisal. They are not wrong, because whenever someone does speak up they are immediately shot down in flames and very publicly. Some employees have left because this behavior became targeted and persistent towards them and bordered on harassment. Others who remain get by by keeping their heads down.

Leaders of this team were not worthy of the title.
Pros
38 hour work week and 9 day fortnight
Cons
Toxic culture tolerated and no action taken to address it

Boeing is a very clicky community controlled by head office in Brisbane
Project Accountant - Swartz Army Base Oakey (Current Employee) –  Oakey QLD17 January 2019
Boeing is a very clicky group and culture controlled by head office in Brisbane. If you were required to come to Brisbane from Oakey on your time if head office come to Oakey it was on company time
negotiation for contract extension were always protracted and did not guarantee any security or continuity of employment
Pros
very few
Cons
Long hours on your time with little help

Hmm
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD17 December 2018
I wouldn't recommend, based on low-mid management unable to make decisions when presented with options and treating staff poorly. Staff don't get promoted within a project, have to jump to different projects. A lot of work is doing configuration and installing third-party software. Not much creation. Slow administrative pipelines

Shift work is hard work
Fixed Network Operator (Former Employee) –  Canberra ACT25 July 2018
My managers who used to be Shift Workers were out of touch and has become yes persons. The hours were long and tedious.

Arrive and wait for things to happen.
Pros
Freedom within work to do other things
Cons
Annoying out of touch managers who used to be doing the same job

Almost the worst experience in my 40 year career
Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Brisbane Central Business District QLD27 June 2018
Boeing overall is good. Certain projects in BDA need to be shutdown and restarted with new crew as its very much a "jobs for the boys" environment with untrustworthy and unskilled people becoming employed and promoted to management roles.
Complaints of unethical behaviour were ignored by HR department and "reorganisations" took place regularly to make the complainants redundant.
Despite the big facade of no tolerance for harassment and bullying, ethics etc at the end of the day you are just another cog in the big machine and when you get squeaky they replace you rather than performing the preventative maintenance.
Almost my worst experience in 40 years of my career - I would never work for Boeing Defence Australia again.
Pros
good salary
Cons
pathetic management culture, "jobs for the boys"

One of 160,000 employees
Centre Administrator (Former Employee) –  Brisbane International Airport4 June 2018
Could have been more relevant to the Australian workplace. I felt like another number and it was very hierarchical. I think it would be better if Boeing was a little more in touch with their companies outside of Seattle in the US.

Challenging and a very safe place to work with..
Manufacturing Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Port Melbourne VIC19 April 2018
The company, overall, is a very good and safe place to work. Although there are these "usual" red tape things wherein depending upon the department you are assigned where there is hardly anything to improve, otherwise.
Pros
Management is normally very understanding, my superiors are very capable, has this flexible RDO per month.

management need ot remember a happy worker is a productive worker
Composite fabrication operator (Former Employee) –  Port Melbourne VIC29 December 2017
i loved what i did at Boeing and the people i worked with on the floor but it was disappointing that the attitude and way most managers treated the people on the floor was so negative and belittling
over the years Boeing has lost multiple great workers due to this and also due to floor staff not being able to progress further in the company.
Pros
great co workers
Cons
managerment

Great company overall, although too much politics
Aviation structures mechanic (Former Employee) –  Port Melbourne VIC21 December 2017
Fantastic company to work for in general, very interesting work although being a production facility can get a little repetitive at times. Boeing is a company that does a lot of its training in house with exception of ohs and first aid so there are plenty of opportunity for higher learning and advancement.
As with any large company i believe there are to many levels of management and the lower level managers always seem like they have something to prove.
I would say Boeing has a very old engrained workplace culture which is difficult to change.
The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing i contributed to making aerospace history on a daily basis.

A great place to work with good pay and attention to safety and quality
Aerospace Worker (Former Employee) –  Port Melbourne VIC13 October 2017
This is a great place to work with inductions and initial training done in a class room environment, with many small courses undertaken, mainly safety related, before anyone sees the factory floor. It's a very clean factory with great importance put on the safety of all employees. Quality is always of greater importance than quantity. I would recommend Boeing without hesitation, and would work for them again if the opportunity arose.
Pros
Emphasis on safety and quality, good pay rates.

Groundhog Day
Systems and Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Brisbane QLD25 July 2017
Very little change, very little advancement. There is an attitude of "that's the way it has always been so that is the way it should stay". There is minimum room for innovation.

Bad behaviour get rewarded
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Brisbane QLD26 April 2017
I saw some terrible behaviour from management in regards to bullying and harassment. Complaints were made to HR but nothing happened. There was a re-org and these people responsible were rewarded with promotion.

I have been working for global companies for 30 years and BDA is unfortunately the worst.
Pros
Salary is good
Cons
Bullying and harassment from management is prevalent

Boeing B717-200 Type Rating Instructor (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD8 March 2017

It was a pleasure to work there in that environment.
Pros
Experienced Instructors
Cons
Only Casual contracts for instructors

Middle management failure
POSITIONS OF TRADESMAN/ MENTOR / INSTRUCTOR (Former Employee) –  Oakey2 March 2017
Most co-workers are great. Middle management (in my case) had no ethics and zero leadership skills, however senior management had to back them, or they would look bad.
Pros
Good co-workers
Cons
Management ethics and leadership skills

A great culture in which to work, supportive, professional, respectful and challenging
EHS Specialist (Current Employee) –  Melbourne VIC1 November 2016
Boeing has a very honest and open culture where everyone is encouraged to be their best and given support to achieve this.
The site has many hazards that must be managed such as dangerous goods, robotics, major planned & unplanned maintenance involving working at heights, LOTO, restricted spaces, traffic management, commissioning,ergonomics for example. Currently there is major construction work also ,
EHS is taken seriously, not just given lip service and has a budget to ensure this is the case.
Pros
supportive, professional, respectful and challenging
Cons
Large company so change can be slow
