    I worked at Boeing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Boeing gives great relocation packages. They also have great networking opportunities and the ability to tour most of the plans in Puget Sound.

    Cons

    Boeing does not have a large amount of young people working there. If you are right out of college you will be one of few.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, matched 401K, incentive bonuses, cash awards for performance and great benefits package.

    Cons

    While pay raises are consistent, upgrades (promotions) can be slower for non-union salary employees. They do however recognize performance lots of opportunity for growth and advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold to the Boeing values. This is the greatest aerospace company in the world for a reason.
