    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Boeing will continue to be one of the top aerospace companies in the world. There is great work life balance and benefits.

    Cons

    Being a 150,000 employee company, bureaucracy is unavoidable and any change is slow-moving.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing by the HR "rules" - promote your entry-level talent or your pipeline will collapse.

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

    Pros

    As stated in the title, great hourly wage, in general, a supportive work environment.

    Cons

    Insurance packages' value declined over the years, since the facility was so large, miscommunication among managers/employees often occurred.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more consistent workflow, build to one specification across the board. That would help a lot.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global company is widely recognized, prestigious company to work for, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Corporate mentality does not bode well for first or second (manager) level employees. With the move to "Globalize" the business, it feels more like outsourcing of our jobs. The push is on for improvements so the business can be grown, sales increased, more work. In reality this translated to a reduced workforce in the department making the improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Pass the savings to the customer so sales can increase.
