    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A good manager makes all the difference in the world. I can flex my schedule and the pay is competitive when including the benefits.
    Career opportunities in various fields is a great plus.
    Boeing pays for all STEM degrees upfront, no need to pay out of pocket and wait for a reimbursement.
    Incentives depend on performance

    Cons

    benefits are getting worse with time, but it may be industry wide due to cost cutting initiatives.
    long hours (60+ per week) with no overtime for a lot of programs.

    Advice to Management

    cut cost by reducing your bonuses, not just laying off employees.

    Pros

    There is a lot of potential in the company right now. A lot of flexibility in work location and job types, and the benefits are fantastic in most of the company

    Cons

    The company is best for young people, but it is still focused heavily on the aging workforce. The planning and direction is very confused at the moment, and rampant cost-cutting initiatives have wildly varying degrees of success. Also, the Ethics department is a joke whose sole responsibility is to protect the brand.

    Advice to Management

    Protect the employees. All the executive leaders in the world mean nothing if you constantly lose talented people because the company refuses competitive pay or a good work-life balance.

    Pros

    Diverse Opportunities, good pay, good benefits, professional union. Relaxed atmosphere compared to east-coast companies.

    Cons

    Have you read Dilbert? All the usual big corporation issues. Non-professional management is spotty; they have what they bring to the job - Boeing doesn't train or mentor them much. They do tend to have good technical backgrounds, but those may not relate to their current assignment (or You). Some of the younger guys complain about the lack of personal bennies, like no free coffee; Boeing is NOT like Google or even Microsoft in that way.

    Advice to Management

    Get some training! Give some training! OJT is a real thing!

    Pros

    Flexible hours provide a better work life balance than other companies.

    Cons

    Promotions are more political than about skill or how you work with peers. Feeling valued is difficult to come by.

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

    Pros

    Decent educational benefits, but waning salary, healthcare and retirement benefits

    Cons

    Poor management and no raises for tenured employees...younger folks stuck in positions with little hope of promotions

    Advice to Management

    Please wake up and realize that you don't actually know everything before all your older experienced people get tired of you and retire, and all of your bright young people leave for a more progressive and rewarding company......today's management is just plain terrible....they are too inexperienced and too focused on self promotion to worry about the development of their younger employees and the company as a whole...look at all the recent write-offs.....those are due to very poor leadership decisions based on poor data from bobblehead self promoting yes man subordinates

    Pros

    Multiple disciplines at multiple sites create huge opportunities to diversify experience.

    Cons

    Change/improvement is extremely slow. A project, is more or less irrelevant by the time it can be completed and ready to present.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to employees. We are only empowered to take on projects that are provided by management.
    The wheel has already been invented. It is not necessary to do it again, again and again.
