    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits. They automatically put 3% of your salary into a 401k and you are fully vested right away. They then match the first 4% that you put in, and then they match 50% of your inputs up to 8%. So, if you put away 8% of your salary into your 401k, Boeing will put 9% of your salary into your 401k.

    Flexible work hours. This depends on your manager and your function, but there is the option to flex time. So, days when you have other things to do, you can work less and make it up later in the week.

    Education payment. After working with the company for a year, you can begin to take classes towards a college degree.

    Cons

    The work is not very challenging. If you are looking to work on the guts of cutting edge technology, Boeing is not the place for you. You may get to play with cool toys, but it is unlikely that you will develop it. Most work involves integrating systems into a manufacturing environment and defining functional requirements.

    There is way too much bureaucracy. It is extremely challenging to get anything done. Everyone needs to have a say and there is oftentimes a notion that something is not their statement of work, even though occasionally it is no one's defined statement of because of its novelty. So, there are instances where groups won't help you and also won't let you do it yourself.

    Too vertical of a company. There are way too many layers of management. There are so many managers that just manage managers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers' advice and be able to accept bad news. There is a culture of providing BS to leadership because of arbitrary deadlines and the fear of saying no to a manager, even though their idea does not make any sense from a technical prospective. Leadership will lash out instead of understanding why there idea wouldn't be feasible.
