Salary at Boeing Defence Australia

What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?

The pay comes in on a fortnightly basis. It is always on time. Several people (myself included) find it a little confusing over Christmas when the company shuts down, including pay role, so the pay date changes. Every year you will get a bonus cash payment. The amount you receive is based on the overall company's performance, your yearly pay, and your personal performance. When recognition is deserved, it will be rewarded. I have received an amount from my project as a "cash reward", which was organised by my manager. I am very grateful for that.

From discussions with other university graduates working similar jobs in the CBD, Boeing seems to be a paying slightly higher salary. It is still within the typical salary band for the respective field of work. Bonuses are yearly and depend on yours and the company’s performance, in general, most employees get a bonus.

Seems like it's generous for some, but I've heard some people at the same level as me getting paid a lot less. The managers could do more in terms of gender equality.

Great benefits and compensation for the work I complete.

Pay brackets, bonuses, benefits and salary progression are all needlessly obscured by HR. Employees are specifically advised not to discuss pay with each other. The annual performance management process is pre-determined by management to fit rewards and compensation to a team-level bell curve.

Too obscure and secretive. I have entered the hours and salary based on my full-time starting amounts as a Graduate Engineer. The part-time situation I am in now is a bit complicated for this form. Also worth noting, the grads get pay rises every 6 months until the 2 year mark when they are automatically promoted to non-graduate.

What are your company's best or most unusual perks? For example: free tickets, free dinners, moving expenses, taxis, pension, etc.

Well, to be honest, i don't know. There is a system for perks and discounts on accommodation, flights, flowers, etc. but it's not advertised very clearly. I don't even know if i could access it from my personal computer or how to use it.

Being a Boeing employee, should you ever wish to visit the manufacturing facilities in the USA you will be granted free tours ON the workshop floor with your family. Standard tours to the public are only from a platform.

RDO every month. I don’t know, they get BUPA in every now and then for some deal but I don't really want private health insurance.

If you volunteer for stuff, and put your hand up (particularly STEM engagement), then unexpected perks can arise that are only offered to those people. I have seen a movie for free thanks to that. I've also been to networking events and catered lunches and things - taxis to and from paid for by the company. Travel, in general, happens in Boeing a lot. A trip to Melbourne or the U.S. for my team to collaborate with other Boeing folks. Also, the graduate program does pretty awesome tours of different Boeing sites as part of it. For example: I have photo of myself sitting in the pilot's chair of a Blackhawk helicopter.
