    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    I was exposed to many exciting work and career opportunities at Boeing over the years. The people, though, are what make boeing such a great place to work. Best run company I ever worked for (have worked for 10 companies in aerospace, hi-tech, and manufacturing as an engineer). Very enjoyable work atmosphere. Had many group pot-lucks for the holidays. made many friends there. People always go out of their way to help you get your job done. Management very helpful to develop your career and provide other work opportunities to learn other job skills. Flexible work hours, great benefits, great people. Most interesting company culture I was ever exposed to.

    Cons

    Can be very challenging to get your work done on time. Must work hard/develop good time management skills.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Global competitor, many growth opportunities, many locations, excellent work/life balance. I have great coworkers as well.

    Cons

    Promotions and personal growth greatly limited by supervisors. This is an industry that is in flux and one must be flexible or willing to find another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees to pursue growth opportunities as soon as possible as opposed to "doing your time" as they may be inclined to look at another company willing to give them the desired challenges and exposure.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Boeing is a great place to work. The salary is competitive and the help with college tuition. the company take pride in constantly improving which is another great way to boost pay.

    Cons

    Very challenging. You will constantly have something to do trying to make something better. As tough as it is you should be fine as long as you pay attention and work hard.
