    Pros

    The minimal employment opportunities are great for transferring to another state to work on the exciting parts of the major aerospace programs. Good benefits for now, quickly being reduced.

    Cons

    Since Boeing bought multiple So Cal aerospace giants (McDonnell Douglas, Rockwell and Hughes), they have aggressively eliminated thousands of jobs. The few positions that will remain will support programs in other states.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the bottom line dollar ruin/eliminate the dreams of the future generation of engineers who want to build things! Stop running the space business like it is a commercial aircraft business.

    Pros

    Boeing is a great place to start your career. It can give you great early opportunities which allow you to learn. The benefits are great, and the people are great to work with. Despite the cons below, I would still suggest anyone to work at this company.

    Cons

    There are several hoops to jump through to follow through with any innovative idea or project. This suppresses the great engineering minds that are available. The company makes it difficult to change; however, that is exactly what it needs to remain competitive.
    There is very little difference in the performance rewards between people who work extra hard and those who skate by.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your own. It appeared that many employees were seen as numbers from the big scale (which may be true). However, having a "small" company feel in which the great employees are rewarded with promotions based on their hard work and value would go a long way.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits though not as good as in previous years. Educational reimbursement, healthcare, 401k are all good.

    Cons

    challenging business environment due to reduce government budgets and international competitions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on development of junior engineers including training, mentoring, conference & seminar attendance, etc.
