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

Pros

Big company where there is opportunity to move around within.
Great plans
They try to keep you in if you are ever laid off (help you find a new job).

Cons

Education plan suffered with the economy. They got smart and required 2 years in the company after completing a masters to paid for it.
Flight Test has limited chances to get higher levels.
Flight Test is a up and down environment. It could be really busy or dead.
LOCATION! Test sites are little towns.

Advice to Management

Keep employees engaged and in flight test spend some money in training. OJT isn't always the best way to do things. The Navy has multiple programs that train their employees. Maybe have rotations in Flight Test to see what the different platforms are doing. Connect the four major test sites by keeping standard procedures throughout the four.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic compensation. The work/life balance is fantastic. They even pay overtime. This is a great place to work, especially if you are an engineer. I recommend it to just about anyone going into engineering. I was in industrial engineering (which is more operations oriented) and it was still a great job.

    Cons

    If you are not an engineer, the opportunities don't appear to be as good overall. They seem to really like the engineers. Also, seniority is very important there. Getting a nice management position can often depend on how long you've been with the company. Not always, I've still seen some stars move their way up. Another issue is, as with most engineering jobs, your job trajectory can often plateau a bit.
