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

Pros

Very nice folks at Boeing. Interesting and hard problems to solve. Good work hours and environment, with the chance to do a variety of things because Boeing is so big.

Cons

Software methodology is not consistent across the company, and mostly out of date. Boeing doesn't consider itself a software company, and doesn't prioritize excellence in this area as highly as they ought to. And they're still using waterfall in some places, and just starting to think about switching to Agile in a few places, when they should've switched years ago.

Advice to Management

Allow junior software developers who are into open source and agile development the chance to help shape the Boeing software development process.

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

    Pros

    Exciting products, great facilities, good benefits, fair compensation, and a lot of opportunities. Very reliable expectations that are reasonable yet mostly challenging, and increasingly progressive culture.

    Cons

    Highest levels of leadership are populated with some very good leaders, but still those ranks often seem to share an elitist mentality where they drink their own cool-aid.

    Advice to Management

    It takes good plans to have seamless execution and you can't manage a secret. Those two axioms are interdependent.
