    Pros

    Salary, benefits, opportunities for moving around and gaining new skills and experience. Cutting edge for engineering. Open culture with a focus on work place safety.

    Cons

    Big company, political with a good old boys club. Often difficult to advance if someone has been in a role or with the company for many years. Seems slow to deliver new technology to support the business.

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

    Pros

    They treat you pretty well, Good pay, good benefits, reasonable job security, amazing products. It's a huge company so if you don't like in one place you can probably move somewhere you do like. Lots of opportunities to pursue different interests. Excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    It's a huge company and has all of the bureaucratic tendencies that come with that. The unions, in the Puget sound at least, can make certain things incredibly frustrating for anyone that is eager to do things outside of their specific job description.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to engender the startup mentality where ever you can

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

    Pros

    - Strongly encourages continuous learning through education and will send you back to school for next to nothing from their list of accredited universities
    - Emphasis on diversity and inclusion, safety, employee development
    - Diverse range of career opportunities internally
    - Supportive management and leadership teams (in my experience)
    - Geographically diverse

    Cons

    - Large and complex (could arguably be a pro)
    - Can be difficult to find your place and understand the scope of your work
    - Can be difficult to advance
    - Can be difficult to make yourself heard
    - Seemingly constant state of reorganization (may be specific to IT)
    - Difficult to have any perceivable impact
    - Bureaucracy comes standard

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it feels like managers, even in close organizational proximity, don't talk to one another; make sure your lines of communication are open and you're talking with more than just your teams in your efforts to accomplish overarching IT goals.
