    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I had a great connection with my team, Good Management, Decent benefits, good tuition re-imbursement and a good work-life balance. Great mentoring program to gain traction in learning the business and creating in-roads to promotions.

    Cons

    Salary was average and the threat of plant closing due to contract losses or no backlog of work slightly worried me . managament kept communications ongoing and open about what was going on. Career path into project manager role was via engineering mostly. there was the rare exception

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of varying opportunities and room to grow. Most of your advanced schooling is compensated.

    Cons

    Difficult for young or ambitious people to feel valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that in 5 years half the existing leaders will be retiring so promote early so that the new leaders can still learn from the old before they go.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company has great benefits and pay above industry average.

    Cons

    Everett location is very difficult to park and have to show up early in the morning to find a spot and walk in the rain for 15 minutes just to get to your job. As career advances the time commitment and travel becomes all consuming and not much time left for family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on work/life balance for those who do not want to spend 60-70 hrs a w eek at work.

    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.
