    Pros

    If you are a union-represented engineer: good benefits and opportunities to get some technical training. Potential for flexible work schedules which is great for people caring for young children or elderly parents. Still some opportunity to move around the company to gain more experience instead of having to move to a completely different company but those opportunities are shrinking. The opportunity to work with some very smart people.

    Cons

    Restrictive skill/job codes that limit movement which used to be a major benefit. Increasingly difficult to move to the next pay scale. Too many levels of management and frequent re-organizations which impacts productivity. Depending on the organization, you can be transferred as often as annually to different sites all over the Puget Sound which makes it difficult to maintain carpools and vanpools, so commuting can be a significant issue. Big company politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of the value your experienced employees bring to the company.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Where else in the world do you get to contribute to the design and engineering of some of the most complex pieces of machinery in existence. At Boeing you have the opportunity to work on everything from software to spaceships, from nuts and bolts to entire airplanes. It is the best place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    Typical large company bureaucracies. Cost cutting measures starting to show in benefits reductions for non-union employees (benefits still better than most of the world). Seemingly short sighted view of the world by senior executives.
    High overtime was fine when we were compensated for it but starting Jan 2014 managers will no longer get paid for more than 40 hours a week but are expected to work it. (I average 50 to 60 hours a week)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully fund programs up front and allow managers to staff to work statement and not arbitrarily cut 30% off budgets to meet arbitrary goals.
