      Not what it once was and getting worse

      Pros

      -Benefits are Great and are the main reason Boeing gets away with how they treat employees -Cool Products if you're enough to work on them -Exciting work, if you are in the right place

      Cons

      -You are a number, most importantly, a cost -Projects can lose funding in a snap if someone up top doesn't see the benefit -Constant fear of being laid off (see above...) -Certain organizations, if not most, involve work on legacy systems and technologies that should have been retired decades ago but no one wants to devote budget to technical debt. -The only way to get promoted or a raise (even more so in 2020) is to switch teams or leave the company and come back. Bonus points if you want to be executive as they only come externally. -The company doesn't do much to retain and hire the best talent so many of the good resources are on the way out if they aren't stuck with Boeing LTP or RSU golden handcuffs -Upper management is in a constant state of leaving the company or moving to a different role leaving a Boeing employee with a solid understanding of management's strategy extremely rare.

      Great Pay and Benefits.

      Pros

      Great pay and benefits. You can almost always find a job with a schedule that works for you.

      Cons

      You're a number and that's it. Unless you plan on spending a whole lot of time cozying up to desk jockeys this career goes nowhere fast. Eventually you come to realize that nothing matters to upper management but profit. Even if that profit comes at the expense of the passengers.
