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

    Pros

    Good salary. Great benefits. Wide range of opportunities. Generally good work life benefits in white collar jobs. One of the few places you might still get a whole career out of.

    Cons

    It seems they’re trending toward a much poorer treatment of employees by moving toward industry standard (e.g. more than quadrupling employee health care burden in one year) but keep in mind that this still might be much better than places like Amazon / Microsoft.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, not doing too bad.

    I worked at Boeing as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn about the different products and the expectation of you is not set low. It was very exciting to meet a lot of professional engineers and get the opportunity to solve actual real world problems. The material taken from school does apply to this field which is very exciting.

    Cons

    Work has some slow days waiting for replies and sometimes it's hard to figure out the right question to ask when working.

    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent salaries and benefits, annual raises, and allows for some mobility between divisions/business units for career progress. The work can be really interesting, depending on the available projects.

    Cons

    Flexible work environment is very tied to the specific management structure - some areas allow plenty of flexibility, others don't. Some projects can involve significant overtime (paid, but lots of weekend/evenings). Significant budget cutbacks and multiple rounds of layoffs are not great for morale.

    Pros

    Great benefits, always projects and things to do if you seek them out. Lots of opportunity to lead projects.

    Union job people who should be let go because of lack of hard work don't get let go. About a quarter of the day is spend doing non value added work.

    Advice to Management

    Talk about career path and opportunities more.
