    I worked at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Great work / life balance. Decent pay. Nice benefits. Amazing products

    Cons

    Very hierarchical with too many levels of leadership and bureaucracy. Slow moving, not a dynamic place to work. Very resistant to change. Leadership values time in service above performance. Stale company culture. Not a desirable place to work if you're under 40 and don't have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Boeing should adapt to the needs and demands of modern younger professionals. The days of pensions and incredible benefits are gone so find other ways to earn employee retention instead of continuing to expect blind unwavering loyalty. New talent should be treated better and given opportunities to work on meaningful statement of work in a reasonable time frame. Employees are considered new until their 3 year anniversary regardless of prior experience and that mentality is reflected in the way "newbies" are regarded by their peers.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Good time off, decent pay, you get to see airplanes roll out the door, mostly friendly people, decent benefits,

    Cons

    Horrible work culture, cutting to the bone for employment, great uncertainty for future, lots of retirements, way too much of the good ol boy system, no clear career paths, education and skills from other companies are not seen as useful, only what you learn inside Boeing. Leadership is far too removed from the product. You will get old, outdated equipment that is at least 3-4 years behind the power curve and have to use it for 2-4 years before getting something new.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people, they actually do the work, lead and and stop managing teams into the ground. Your attrition rate in certain positions should show that you are doing something very, very wrong. Stop the layoffs and take a strong look at who you need where. A bean counter won't tell you how many people you need for a job. Stop being drug around by wall street.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Strongly encourages continuous learning through education and will send you back to school for next to nothing from their list of accredited universities
    - Emphasis on diversity and inclusion, safety, employee development
    - Diverse range of career opportunities internally
    - Supportive management and leadership teams (in my experience)
    - Geographically diverse

    Cons

    - Large and complex (could arguably be a pro)
    - Can be difficult to find your place and understand the scope of your work
    - Can be difficult to advance
    - Can be difficult to make yourself heard
    - Seemingly constant state of reorganization (may be specific to IT)
    - Difficult to have any perceivable impact
    - Bureaucracy comes standard

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it feels like managers, even in close organizational proximity, don't talk to one another; make sure your lines of communication are open and you're talking with more than just your teams in your efforts to accomplish overarching IT goals.
