    Pros

    Some groups support mentoring program. Some opportunities exist for training. Some good and smart people.

    Cons

    Old tools. Terrible processes. Bad Morale. Political environment. Indecisive management. Complicated contracts with the customer. Bosses are managers, not leaders. Wrong skillsets hired. IT SOE is buggy. Doesn't leverage Boeing USA services. Lipservice to values. Management undercut engineering estimates and projects run over. No paid overtime. Starting to lean a bit too left-wing/PC with their social campaigns. Organisational changes happen regularly. Lack of clear responsibility (RAA). Slackers can hide. Poorly implemented performance management.
