    I worked at Boeing full-time (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.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Talented workforce, great benefits, a lot of opportunity to move around. A prestigious company to work for given its history and engineering contributions.

    Cons

    Boeing keeps with the traditional engineering corporate culture. Innovation and new ideas aren't the norm or readily accepted or implemented. Of course govt customer's can cause roadblocks.
    For younger engineers they may find Boeing boring with its rigid processes and 9-5 lifestyle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To move in the future Boeing needs to be open to innovation and ideas from its workforce. This means more then starting a couple of programs to spark innovation, but motivating the lower rungs of management to solicit this information from their employees and more importantly acting on it.
    Start taking initiatives to attract new young talent. Stronger bonuses, company outings, gyms and other perks will keep Boeing competitive with other technology companies for the future.
