    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.

    Pros

    My colleagues were great people and I had a lot of fun. The benefits that come with working with the company are amazing.

    Cons

    Even though the pay isn't the best, the benefits are great. I didn't have the best assignment compared to some other interns.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great collection of sharp minds and a culture that encourages growth and sharing knowledge. The Chinook Program still has exciting projects and great teams. The enterprise is vast, so you can move to a new program and remain under the company umbrella.

    Cons

    It is a big company, so things move slow, from a corporate ladder perspective. Also, the current performance evaluation structure rates employees compared to other employees; somebody is always rated the worst. This translates to this scenario: an entire team can all equally contribute, but 20 percent has to be rated great, 60 percent rated average, 20 percent are rated below average.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate workers individually, not compared to each other and placed in 20-60-20 groups.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Although I was new to the company, I felt like my opinions were valued as soon as I started here. Boeing has a huge emphasis on safety and employee well being, and I've never been happier at a job. Plus, the work is meaningful and significant. I'm proud to work here.

    Cons

    Boeing is a big company, which can slow things down a bit. Change is definitely valued here, but it can be cumbersome to implement it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your employees' opinions.
