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

    Pros

    Proven and stable company with many entry level opportunities, and many interesting projects. Many travel and hands on opportunities for aircraft programs and trainers.

    Cons

    Top heavy company with no technical career path opportunities for mid to high level engineers. The size of the company severely dampens ability to change.

    Advice to Management

    Management has struggled to adopt agile development practices and many managers are resistant to change. I generally aliens more time planning than doing.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    It's a good company that provides a decent wage. Active unions help maintain good benefits.

    Cons

    Quintessential large corporation. Very bureaucratic, process heavy. Their obsession with safety inhibits productivity and creates unintended consequences. It's the classic, let's do something, anything, regardless of whether it makes sense. Ultimately, it's not a workplace that creates an impassioned workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate. There's little desire to take commercial airplane designs to another level.

    Pros

    Job security, salary, benefits are good for job expectations.

    Cons

    I started working here out of college as a young whipper snapper. The molasses-like pace of the company made me impatient and frustrated.

    Promote people you would want your kids to work for.

    Culture and vibrancy of individual teams needs to be coached and encouraged at the first line leader level more
