I have been working at Boeing full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of variety. You can transfer within the company with no penalites. Paid overtime is nice and work-life balance is excellent.

Cons

There is an enormous amount of process. This is an extremely risk averse IT environment that is solely interested in driving down costs. You can work on cool stuff, but it takes forever to get it into production .

Advice to Management

The agile methodology can save you alot of time and money! You need to find an executive that is willing to stand for iterative development and all of its implications. Only then will you be able to have effective software development.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    such a large company that they're bound to be doing something I find interesting, benefits package are superior (even without union representation), opportunities to actually use what i learned in school, international and domestic travel

    Cons

    such a large company it's easy to get lost with the rest of the cogs in the machine

    Advice to Management

    learn to keep your younger employees engaged and interested, if you're trying to 'hide' certain employees make sure they're not just pushing paper around, appreciate the degree i spent time in getting since that's what you hired me for


  2. "Strong teamwork for such a large company."
