    Pros

    Stability. Once you're in, it's impossible to be fired. You must do something ridiculous to get yourself fired. Work/life balance. I hardly see any people work more than 40 hours a week. Since the average employee is pretty old, those folks typically leave work right when they've put in their 8 hours for the day. Management isn't very demanding, which is good for work/life balance

    Cons

    Old workforce. It's known that +50% of Boeing is within retirement age. So it's rare to see more than 5 people younger than 35 in a group. Half of my group is as old as my own father. Sub-par IT organization. Being in the Seattle area, Amazon and Microsoft dominate the tech industry and talent pool. As a result, a lot of the lesser talent ends up at Boeing. ITCFP. This is strictly for the ITCFP program, not Boeing in general. The hiring process is painfully broken. New-hires into the program will get the short end of the stick since they don't have access to the Boeing network. The program in general is lacking in organization and cohesiveness. Few of the participants are engaging and come to social events. The program management office does nothing to make the program seems like an actual program. It's very 'do-it-yourself' like.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to let people go, don't make decisions based on how your superiors will look at you, and get organized

    Pros

    Good health and retirement savings benefits

    Cons

    poor HR support....poor talent management by untrained managers...no skill set champions to grow and foster career development....the employee is on his/her own to move up or improve their capabilities

    Advice to Management

    look at what you are losing for the sake of cost-cutting measures...the slow trickle of talent will soon mean a large outflow (i.e., loss) of revenue
