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

Pros

Lots of variety. You can transfer within the company with no penalites. Paid overtime is nice and work-life balance is excellent.

Cons

There is an enormous amount of process. This is an extremely risk averse IT environment that is solely interested in driving down costs. You can work on cool stuff, but it takes forever to get it into production .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The agile methodology can save you alot of time and money! You need to find an executive that is willing to stand for iterative development and all of its implications. Only then will you be able to have effective software development.

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Boeing full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I had worked for Connexion by Boeing before the then-CEO shut down the division.
    - Challenging work
    - Lots of learning experiences
    - Knowledgeable coworkers
    - Fair compensation, excellent benefits (used to pay for any classes that employees want to take)

    When the company chose to shut down Connexion by Boeing in 2006, they gave employees plenty of time (at least 6 months) to look for jobs internally. The local HR team also helped employees look for job externally by inviting local employers to participate in an on-campus job fair. The company treated the affected employees very well during this time...this was unheard of elsewhere.

    Cons

    - Less established processes given Connexion by Boeing was a very young division
