    I worked at Boeing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is well respected. 401k and health benefits are good for interns. I worked in an office, but still got to walk around the manufacturing and assembly floor.

    Cons

    If you are a software engineering intern, you will not get to use or build anything innovative. Some people and returning interns I knew did have cool projects, but they had to hunt and fight for them. If you're a good developer you can find something with much better compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Put interns on real development teams that are actually building things. I asked for a development job and was put on a team maintaining a COTS product. That experience soured my opinion of working at the company.
