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

    Pros

    Possibly the best reason to work at Boeing is the opportunity to work on different programs. Since I've worked at Boeing, I've been on 4 different major projects, most of which are in the news all the time. The other is the ability to move to a different state or country and stay within the Boeing umbrella. The pay is competitive, the benefits are great.

    Cons

    The cons of working for a big company is things move very slowly at times. Of the pros I mentioned previously, a con that goes with moving from project to project is it rapidly becomes the same work you were doing on another program. Because the company is so big, it's easy for non-productive teammates to hide in the shadows. Like all things, your position is what you make of it as long as you have your own path in focus.

    Advice to Management

    Work toward keeping Boeing what it was 20 years ago. This recent movement to squeeze the employees is going to end up in attrition.

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

    Pros

    -Great salary, benefits
    -Variety of positions, work, locations, even within the same function if you seek them out
    -Achieve technological marvels as part of a larger team

    Cons

    - Limited opportunity for advancement
    - Hit or miss with management, I've had great and poor managers, there seems to be little accountability and this can make a big difference to the overall experience. This is also true for lead engineers
    -Bureaucracy/Hierarchy limits the amount of innovation/challenge one can take on
    -Boeing is struggling with its culture between innovation and manufacturing

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether we are an innovator or manufacturer, and organize the company around those lines.
    Hire/promote leads and managers with people skills who develop and promote their employees, hold them accountable for team morale.
