I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great pay, decent benefits, free gym, lots of networking opportunities; decent coworkers.

Cons

Management, depending on your group, can be petty, insecure, unprofessional, and go against better business practices just to spite those they don't like - not really a smart way to run things. Also the work can be dull; most people just sit around counting down the clock or napping in their cubicles.

Advice to Management

Actually try to learn what it is the people you manage do on a day-to-day basis and don't feel threatened by their experience and skills and try to overcompensate for your ineptitude by spouting off random useless non-facts to "prove" your point.

    I have been working at Boeing full-time

    Pros

    Excellent vacation/sick leave package. Very flexible about taking time off. Work can be challenging. People usually are friendly and mostly competent. Excellent education opportunities to advance your knowledge.

    Cons

    Some real dead wood still lingers after multiple layoffs. Real drag to see good people going out the door while slackers remain. It seems that emphasis on superior engineering not as important as making a buck.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to realize that superior engineering will generate the profits. Without the best engineering, profits will erode. Reward those with best technical abilities, not necessarily those that celebrate diversity!
