    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The opportunities and benefits are great. Most are willing to go the extra mile and help when you most need it.

    Cons

    The aerospace industry is very volatile, which is really no reflection on Boeing. But the instability can be a bit unsettling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building quality products that protect our Soldiers.

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

    Pros

    There are many reasons to work at Boeing. The best is the great benefits you'll receive once working there. Seattle office is very open to LGBT and various other affinity groups. GREAT work life balance. Many are able to flex their schedules and work from home.

    Cons

    Too many older, baby boomers who run the company. Lots of people competing for one job within a certain group. Little room for fast promotion. Most managers do not become managers until late 30s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to start adding more in-office "perks" to attract top young engineers and prevent them from going to Amazon, Microsoft, and other small tech start ups.

    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to come up with new ideas and try them out. I felt like I was a key part of the business and I made a valuable contribution.

    Cons

    It always seemed like it took forever to get something implemented and you always had to have everyone's agreement before moving out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to try something new even it the structure isn't all in place. Boeing needs to be more nimble if it wants to continue to be on top.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Work and family life balance. Great pay. Excellent benefits. Several career opportunities internally.

    Cons

    Culture is conservative and not open to change. Theory X management still strong. Non standard process for promotion from within. Under utilize employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage collaboration. Encourage and enable knowledge transfer as older workforce is reaching retirement age new employees are hungry for knowledge but often times they do not have a voice.
