    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I worked in two different skill codes, design engineer and systems engineer, over the course of 11 years, and the best part of my experience was always my coworkers. The teams I worked with were smart, helpful, and cooperative. Some of my managers were better than others. The benefits remain the best in the aerospace field, however, are continuously being reduced.

    Cons

    Executives seem to be interested in making the company more cash rich than people rich, and have a habit of hiring cyclically. It can be difficult to move around the company.

    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.
