    I worked at Boeing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent Pay and Benefits. A lot of overtime if you are into that.

    Cons

    Profit versus Quality. Upper management wants you to finish as many jobs as possible so they can look good and get higher bonuses while you are held accountable if the plane crashes. They tried to get rid of quality teams until the second 737 plane crashed. With the layoffs going around, it looks like they are back on that idea as they are laying off quality employees hired all the way from 2011.

    Pros

    Got to work on a lot of big projects right off the bat on a development program.

    Cons

    Don't get to do as much actual engineering as I'd like, more project management. Upper management doesn't seem to have career growth or interests in mind. Seat time is much more important than actual job skill in regards to advancement/promotions.
