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

    Pros

    It's Boeing! The name stands out. Education -tuition very beneficial.

    Cons

    Difficult to move, promoted or just land an interview. I have seen several individuals leave and they are thriving at new location and seem more happy and at peace. Hard to accept but sometimes it is who you know. I am watching teammates focus on leaving the company to get the recognition and pay to match their skills. For now they are collecting a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Remove your individual bias. It does not help the company

    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, reasonable hours, able to learn as much as you desire about how Boeing does business or you can just sit back and do the bare minimum. It's all up to you.

    Once an administrator, always an administrator regardless of KSAs. Unless of course you have a VP or above advocating for you, but that is quite rare.
