    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job stability Great benefit (too great actually) Great for self motivated and EXTREMELY patient employee

    Cons

    Not a software company and there do not value software as it should Lasy culture (it's common culture to just do the bear minimum) Too many layer of management Bureaucracy and red tape (typical big company)

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the lasy culture. But how could you, given you are part of it!

    I have been working at Boeing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's a ton of experience and information around. If you want to know how to build a very specific circuit for a task, odds are that there's somebody nearby that can help you out. They have access to practically any software license you would need and any database you'll want to access. The benefits are great and they've got dedicated support for dealing with any issue involving health insurance, 401k, or other...

    Cons

    Never has Boeing as a company ever done anything for me that I would consider fun. You show up to work, sit at your desk and pray that you actually get to have some reprieve from reading endless PowerPoints, or attending meetings that could have been summarized in an email. Everything comes down to what will immediately make Boeing money. Turning a conference room into a break room only looks like an additional expense...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employee's well-being. Invest in their mental health. Don't make coming to work feel like a prison. Actually use some of that money you have to better your employees. Nobody ever smiles at work and maybe it's time to start wondering why that is?

    Pros

    Get to work on fun projects.

    Cons

    Cutting overtime significantly limits comp.

    Advice to Management

    Promote faster. I hear back in the 70's is was possible to become a VP or STF by your early 30s. That is not the case any more.

    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Huge employer with very good benefits and fair pay practices. Tons of resources, tuition reimbursement, excellent 401k, etc.

    Cons

    In any huge company there are some great leaders and some awful managers. Be careful to research the specific department and people you will be workin for.

    Advice to Management

    Executive leadership can easily lose touch with the work groups. They would be better served to develop trusted advisors from the rank and file to help them better understand which middle managers are worth their weight in gold and which are full of hot air.

    Awe inspiring products and manufacturing facilities. Employees have a truly unique opportunity to directly interact with all products. Best in industry 401K, tuition reimbursement, holidays, vacation and sick leave. Actual work-life balance. Very real career growth opportunities that almost all managers encourage; anyone can truly do anything at the company. Interesting business problems and worldwide...

    Cons

    Deeply depressing office environments – suburban or rural locations in run-down buildings with 1980s cubicle layouts. Think Office Space but with crappier coffee. Mind-numbing bureaucratic culture – enormous amounts of red tape that inhibit any one person from making decisions quickly. Sometimes it feels like nothing is happening around here. Legacy business systems that are 4-5 generations obsolete. ...
