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

    Pros

    Many different areas of the business including manufacturing, Software development, R&D, with business development in the commercial aerospace arena and the defense/government contracting arena. It's a big company, so there are "sweet spots" to be found and some exciting opportunities that provide interesting and engaging work.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to do more with diminishing resources, lots of attrition and years of layoffs make for a very high stress work environment. Also, very political. Too many levels of management. Many managers who succeed are just "yes" people who only care about how things look to their upper management. This environment contributes to very high turn over in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on increasing employee morale. Happy employees are more productive. Don't be afraid to get rid of bad leaders, but instead figure out how to do it. They are the number one reason people leave.
