Great plane design! Safety to the Max!

Great job and excellent engineering Boeing. Let's review. 737 max engines are heavier which changed the aerodynamics. That gave it a nose up attitude on takeoff. Awesome change. Who wouldn't want a plane that drives nose up on takeoff under full... read more

It's all about greed

Of course Boeing will do anything to eliminate costs in airplane production! Boeing is more and more focused everyday on eliminating anything that can make profits increase. Eliminate job tasks employees do in their everyday jobs, eliminate quality... read more

Will this cause layoffs?

Who else is worried that the second 737 crash will result in more layoffs at Boeing? I don't remember the last time I was this nervous, waiting to see what was going to happen.

QA Layoffs in 2019

We were told today that 400 QA jobs will be affected next year (2019) and another 400 the year after that due to a “QA Transformation Plan”. They plan to remove QA inspections, and put it all on the mechanics. Not real sure how the FAA bought into... read more

737 supplier slowdown

I read somewhere Boeing's suppliers were delaying deliveries and that the line would slow down. Are there layoffs associated with that? I'd be stupid because you won't get those people back when it picks back up again. Asking for a friend.

Hard to get ahead

If Boeing has a major problem today, it's favoritism. Promotions at the factory are still based on who you are friends with, which translates into a very long wait just to be able to get a step ahead. It doesn’t matter if you are a hard worker or how... read more

Lousy management

I really wish Boeing would have it’s Upper Management get their act together. Decision making processes are all over the place. They keep changing their minds all the time, which ends up causing anxiety in the workplace for the rest of us. It becomes... read more

Bureaucracy a main staple

There is a so much bureaucracy in Boeing. I know some of it comes with the territory of being a large corporation, but this is too much even for that. The company gives us many different career paths and opportunities, however, in order to reach them... read more

Continuous stealthy layoffs

Lockheed, Boeing, Northrop and perhaps the other big aero-defense companies have been playing this game for a long time where the ongoing layoffs are continuous throughout the year but the numbers laid off at any given time is always kept below the... read more

Boeing layoff culture

Here we go again, Boeing layoff culture on the move. Boeing seems obsessed with two things – GE and layoffs, how many times does Boeing have to be burned by fools from GE? Boeing is doing blanket layoffs based on Level, from level 4 to 6 and K&L... read more

Promises are never kept

Boeing capitalized on the backs of new hires, they scared them! Boeing used this to gain heavily well into the future, the unions acted soft and dint see this coming, they passively went along with what Boeing demanded, contract negotiating behind... read more

VLOs and ILOs

I don't want to be Mr. Negativity here, but that 3x growth is not just revenue, it is a profit goal as well. Let's look at how Boeing has met it's goals in the past. Oh yeah, they do VLOs and ILOs to reduce costs and meet profits expectations. Good... read more

BA is playing a dangerous game
