    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Varied work load, given lots of responsibility and also freedom to create new things. Great salary.

    Cons

    Odd work hours during testing means working at night sometimes, but still need to be there during the day for meetings. Hours are a bit brutal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job. Frequent team meeting are helpful. Maybe more training sessions.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Comfortable environment, good people, interesting projects. Career advancement generally correlates with performance. For technical staff who want to grow but do not want to go into management, they have a separate career track.

    Cons

    Like at any government contractor, the work is uneven. One day you are writing a proposal and working like a dog. Then you have a lull time. Senior management is not always knowledgeable. There were some layoffs, which contributed to uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a big company, and I was exposed only to my little niche - my advice to management may not be applicable to all. Still: communicate with your subordinates! The lack of communication was the most frustrating part of working there.

    Excellent group of tech. fellows, scientist, lots of challenges, no politics, and enjoy to work for.
    and be Proud.

    IF you are willing to relocate out of state, then its Ok, otherwise, can be difficult to stay at one location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love to work for this company and enjoyed.
    One point, too many managers working and less Indians to do actual job.
    Let go others who don't produce the work (mostly managers are there for many yrs.), and hire NEW generations
    bring the balance of the Age, not part of discrimination but the reality of Life for whom don't work HARD should be Out.!
