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

Pros

Good 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.

Cons

Bloated 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.

    A great place to work if you're an engineer (I'm not an engineer).

    Pros

    (From an IT perspective)
    Pay is very competitive.
    I lucked out and got a great manager.
    Good medical and dental benefits.
    Sick leave / Vacation

    Cons

    (From an IT perspective)
    Most of the company is near retirement. (and poor knowledge transfer in many areas.)
    They can't retain new employees.
    Outsourced Systems Administration.
    General lack of trust in upper IT management due to poor decisions and miscommunications in the past.
    Increasing workload with small headcount.
    Extreme resistance to increasing headcount.

    Advice to Management

    Work on changing the company's culture to be attractive to today's professionals, not retirees.
    Increase the headcount in IT to ease the gigantic workload.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, pay is ok, it's a big company so there is a lot of different places to work (location and work statement)

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic, slow to change, Boeing is an older company and it shows.
