    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible time off, decent standard benefits but upper management are looking for ways to cut cost on it. Great education benefits, almost free depending on what you want to study.

    Cons

    Promotions ae getting harder to get, company cutting cost by reducing benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You'll lose young talented workers if you cant retain them. Employee morale is dropping due to drastic cost cutting.

    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.

    Pros

    Very GOOD company to work for. After all, I have completed 34 years with them! Good benefits and salary.

    Cons

    Not like what it used to be. Lots of changes that are not good to experience. Trying to get rid of senior employees because of pensions. Also, "employees are no longer their best asset. MONEY is!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like the company has promised, but has FAILED MISERABLY!! That the employee is still the company's most important asset.

    Pros

    The company provides tuition assistance towards Boeing-strategic degree and non-degree college programs through Preferred School Partners. The program pays tuition directly to the school and reimburses payment for textbooks and many required fees.

    Cons

    Pensions are no longer available for new employees due to increase cost pressure and competitive environment has become fiercer than ever.

    I worked at Boeing as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome look at the aerospace industry in a large corporation. Although in my position was not necessarily related to my major entirely, I was encouraged to continually find opportunities to grow and network within the company. Did not take much to impress my team! Great pay and fun location in Puget Sound.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to find a position that matches your major. Can feel lost in a large company, and students should proactively reach out to others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep showing new hires the cool and innovative stuff going on at Boeing. There's a lot of research and development kept under wraps that would make any intelligent college grad want to work here as much as Amazon or Apple.

    Pros

    Great program set up for interns. You get the chance to see things only Boeing employees see and get to be very engaging on your team. Flexible hours are also a plus

    Cons

    Depends on your team. Im sure each varies greatly. As for me, the only con was being alone a lot. Summer is when most employees take vacations, so my mentors were frequnetly gone. They gave me a list of my tasks and let me go at it alone.
