Not the best, but by far not the worst.

I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits despite Boeing's continued attempts at lowering them.
Some of the smartest and best engineers I've ever worked with are here.
Although I'm not banking on it still being around in its current form, the pension is very nice on top of the 401K (Boeing VIP) plan.
Huge company that encourages exploring in different departments and divisions to make sure you are working on the things you want to work on.

Cons

Politics within upper management is crazy. You have to learn how to play the politics in order to be able to move ahead.
Management has a tendency to establish career advancement within the company in such a way that you either HAVE to play their politics or you just go to an outside company and get hired back at a higher level.
Bureaucracy is ridiculous.
Boeing's continued attempts to focus engineers into processes rather than actual engineering. This of course is done to undermine the experience that the engineers bring and try to apply the experience into processes so that they can replace much higher paid and experienced engineers with younger, lesser paid engineers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit trying to shift the company's core skills from engineering to integrators. Don't steer away from the engineering, there's not that many places that have the rich engineering knowledge.
