It's a place where you can learn if you take advantage of the benefits -- just don't stay too long.

Business & Planning Analyst IV (Current Employee)
Huntington Beach, CA

ProsGood benefits (although they're not what they used to be).
Telecommuting options for some jobs being adopted, at least on a part time basis.
Some groups do work on some sexy products.
Mostly respectful of work/life balance.

ConsBloated and redundant org structure.
Aging workforce -- too many of whom are just focused on putting in their time to collect their pensions.
Uninspriring environment -- which leads to an inability to engage employees.
Inability to keep younger employees.
"Two Tiered" Wage Structure -- Lots of graybeards making a ton of dough who frankly don't do much. People now being brought in at much lower salaries to do the same work. Had led to widespread skills vs. pay discrepancies.
Good ol' boys networking
Once they pigeonhole you into a particular Salaried Job Classification (SJC), the company makes it virtually impossible to branch out into other areas.
Meaningless performance review system.
Merit system (salary review) system that won't correct deficiencies if you got lowballed coming in.
"Pay your dues" mentality.

    10 weeks in a huge organization isn't enough, but my experience was underwhelming

    I have been working at Boeing


    Pros: Good benefits--even for interns Friendly, helpful people Work life balance is good, maybe… Cons: Skills learned can only be leveraged at Boeing Opportunities for advancement seem to be plenty, but not… More
