Overall a great place to work, the usual Management issues and opportunities don't always go to those best suited. The type of Manager you have will determine if it is a great place to work or just a good place. Becoming a place that rewards sycophantic behavior. Very good salary and conditions
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.
38 hour work week and 9 day fortnight
Toxic culture tolerated and no action taken to address it
Felt valued & inclusive. Terrific work environment. Great team to be apart of. Encouraged to be who you are. Opportunities to up skill & take on courses.
Flexible work patterns
Job didn't last. Contract basis to Commonwealth
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
Long hours on your time with little help
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
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.
Freedom within work to do other things
Annoying out of touch managers who used to be doing the same job
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.
pathetic management culture, "jobs for the boys"
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.
Management is normally very understanding, my superiors are very capable, has this flexible RDO per month.
Nonstop activity with a broad spectrum of responsibilities, stimulating working with professionals. A challenge to complete a work package with endless review.
Broad experience, high responsibility
Slow to respond to change
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.
great co workers
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.
