    Pros

    - Interesting projects
    - Working with bright people

    Cons

    - Complex management structure.
    - Management are mostly far removed from anything technical, making decision purely on numbers
    - Managers don't stay in position for too long. Often they don't get to feel the consequences of their decision (good or bad). If there is no feedback, it's hard for them to make adjust or improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers with strong technical background

    Pros

    The commercial side of Boeing is largely about building and supporting airplanes. The defense side does much more diverse work, including a lot of advanced software development. There are good opportunities to work on cutting-edge technology.

    Cons

    Because of US federal gov contracting regulations, most of the work in the defense side of Boeing needs to be supported by a customer, otherwise it contributes to overhead and makes Boeing less cost-competitive. This leads to the inability to pursue what could be very good products, and in general there is not much of an entrepreneurial culture. The management is mostly very hierarchical, not very imaginative, and often given responsibilities in areas in which they have little experience or talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention and respect to those with actual knowledge or experience, even outside of their areas of official responsibility according to the org chart.
