I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Boeing has some of the best benefits and compensation around. The technology is fairly interesting. The customers are great to work with. There isn't much competition, etc.

Cons

There is a "that's not your job" mentality here. Managers do management work. Software engineers do software work. There's not much crossover. If you get bored of doing the same thing all the time this makes it hard to make career changes within the company.

Advice to Management

Boeing needs to innovate proactively instead of reactively. Don't just innovate because you're backed into a corner by the competition and you have to. Be the leader. The 787 was brought on about the time that that the Airbus A380 was hyped. Let's innovate some more now.
