    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.

    I have been working at Boeing

    Pros

    Great benefits and a work life after work. Every Friday, there is an employee a group meeting and bonding. My relationship with co-worker and supervisor are good.

    Cons

    It is hard to advancement if you are not in good term or have personality conflict with supervisor/manager. Hard work is not equal to advancement or promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employee base on performance not on personal preferences
