I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Highly flexible work/life balance. Decent pay.

Cons

Great engineering company - phenomenal products and a fantastic place to be an aerospace engineer; however, this also means that a majority of the management structure is driven by engineering. Thus, the business environment is sometimes rigid and highly process/procedure driven.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. If you're an engineer you're part of the (SPEEA) union and will ALWAYS get a raise every year. We don't get Columbus day, Presidents day or other certain other holiday's off, but we do get 1.5 weeks mandatory off with pay. You choose your path...You can get away with minimal work.

    Cons

    You get sucked into the slow motion, and it's very easy to fall into a comfort zone where you neither progress nor digress. You can see 8 years fly by and you're doing the same thing, which is not mentally stimulating anymore and when you consider moving to a different job you realize your degree has 8years of dust on it and no longer feel you have the skill acquired through your degree to really apply to a job that requires it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Offer alternative projects/assignments/jobs when asked for. Don't force your employees to do things you have been told for years they don't like doing.

    Awesome if job security is your concern, not the most fun/impactful/challenging thing in the world.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You either have to have an unusually picky manager or be noticeably bad to not be asked back. You have a strong chance of receiving an offer.
    The projects don't seem like life or death situations. They're manageable and as long as you put in a decent amount of effort, that seems to be all that is expected.
    The pay and benefits are great.

    Cons

    The company feels middle-aged and boring.
    It's not particularly challenging and you don't feel as if you're making much impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want young and fresh talent, you have to be appealing to young and fresh people. This is resoundingly not the case.
