    Pros

    The cultural was laid back, and the facility was right next to the production line of the aircraft.

    Cons

    Tasks weren't related necessarily to engineering, even though I was a systems engineer intern. Task were also not challenging.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Fair pay for the area. Work location is ideal. Lots or PTO and sick leave. Very diverse work force.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management and executive over site is non-existent. Because of poor management, you are expected to work several weekends in a row to keep up with an ever increasing rate.

    Advice to Management

    Let the production line "pull" its self along and not the schedule pushing it from the back,

    Needs to focus on creative new solutions instead of rehashing old ideas

    Pros

    Really good benefits. Nice to get overtime for a salary job.

    Cons

    You end up working all the time. Typically have to work every other weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making excuses for why your bonuses are so high, yet other costs are driving the employee bonuses down even though the company keeps making more money than it ever has in the past.

    Pros

    Boeing offers a decent wage, good "traditional" benefits (medical, dental, vision), generous educational benefits, and potentially opportunities to move up/move around.

    Cons

    I've worked at a handful of companies before coming to Boeing and I have to say I've never encountered such terrible, terrible management in my life. Things you would think, especially in this day and age, would be considered an HR nightmare have been common place. I've had an opportunity to chat with a lot of fellow employees from different groups/programs/divisions and compare notes and I'll admit my experience is not "the norm," but it is sadly not as rare as one would hope. Ultimately, it's really a crap shoot as to what group you land in and what type of management you get when you're hired. Additionally, the company overall has a very "traditional" (translation, outdated) way of thinking which can be super frustrating and shows in their high rate of turnover rate of 0-5yr employees.

    Pros

    Was not expected to work outside of work hours. Pretty relaxed and low-pressure due to the lull in the product cycle. Very friendly coworkers who were hardworking and helpful. As an intern, they treat you amazingly well. Many networking events with higher-ups. Information interviews were a part of the culture, where you could schedule a 1-1 with basically anyone, even very important people, to talk about career development. Very open environment in terms of talking about switching jobs within the company.

    Cons

    Ramp up is almost nonexistent. I would try to make work for myself and ask everyone and there was disorganization over what project I would be working on. The majority of the time I had no work and was very bored. Many of the other interns felt that way as well. My group worked 7AM-3:30 PM because that was when the majority of people showed up and that was very early to me.

    Advice to Management

    The events for interns are top-notch and amazing. We loved the tours of all the awesome parts of Boeing. However, we will return for the work. It is important that when a group hires an intern, there will be work for the intern to do. The interns that I knew stayed because of the policy of being able to easily switch roles within the company, and if you want to make planes Boeing is the best.

    Try and have a clearer / more well defined purpose for each team
