    Promote more women in to management leadership positions. Hire managers who have strengths in Leadership as well as technical depth.

    I worked at Boeing as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice people and interesting projects to work on them with.

    Cons

    In general, projects have a bit of a start-up cost in the form of getting accounts and equipment for new people. Can make first week a bit of a drag if they didn't properly prep for your arrival.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help new guys understand management, even if they are interns, just so they aren't confused about various meetings they are attending and such.

    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Great benefits and a work life after work. Every Friday, there is an employee a group meeting and bonding. My relationship with co-worker and supervisor are good.

    Cons

    It is hard to advancement if you are not in good term or have personality conflict with supervisor/manager. Hard work is not equal to advancement or promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employee base on performance not on personal preferences

    Pros

    good benefits. white collar union for engineers, opportunities to change jobs within the company.

    Cons

    It's a large company, so lots quirks come along with that. For example they push some ideas like Lean in such a way that the outcome is the opposite of their desired result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should look at the actual performance of the individuals, while in practice personalities are a large driver - try to be objective.

    Pros

    This company has a more diverse product profile than most companies in the world. They do meaningful work. They pay well. Their benefits are unmatchable. They seem to really take interest in their employees.

    Cons

    Heavily processed oriented and being one of the largest Fortune 500 companies tends to cause changes to happen much slower.
