    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Flexibility to work with manager if you need to come in late or take time off - if manager allows you can make up the time instead of using vacation time.

    Cons

    Time off is divided into vacation and sick leave. So if you aren't sick often, you don't get to use all of your time off. Can only roll over half of your unused sick time to the next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sick leave and vacation one bucket.

    Pros

    Great benefits.
    Flexible hours.
    Family friendly.
    Further education paid for.

    Cons

    Conservative and Corporate!
    Age gap in most teams between new hires and everyone else.
    Often working with older technology to support legacy platforms.
    Change happens slowly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in getting engineers into management. People are more likely to respect their leader if they feel the leader actually understands what they do. Micromanaging is not a substitute for the time in the trenches and knowing what engineers do on a daily basis and what sorts of challenges matter to them.

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

    Pros

    Excellent healthcare benefits (the best out of Puget Sound). Company matches $200 for every 20 hours you volunteer for an eligible nonprofit (does not include professional, religious or political associations, and pet shelters). On the professional side, bosses are more than willing to work through any scheduling issues at work with no problems. The work can be challenging and cutting edge, but you need to go out and seek that for yourself.

    Cons

    Parking is a doozy if you are working at the Everett plant and you can't really catch the bus from most areas either. A general feeling of job insecurity as more warn notices are issued and work moves out of Puget Sound.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Executive management make their employees feel like just a number and expense on a balance sheet. I realize the market is competitive but let your workers feel like you are investing in us and the great employees will follow suit. Allow for a less aggressive engineering schedule in development programs and give your engineers the transparency of cost throughout development vs the current status quo, to provide costs only if you ask and have a "need to know" to reduce recurring costs for the airplane.
