I'm a 24 year old Software Engineer and I have been employed for 2 years here. Education and Work Life Balance are the sure reasons to work for Boeing. They will subsidize any education you can think of. I took Culinary Arts from the Art Institute and the company paid for it. I am now taking Japanese and Italian and the company paid for it. It's a great place to work if you want to continue your education and have time during your work day to study if needed.
We get 80 hours of vacation which I turn into many many days off since we are allowed to flex our schedule. You can turn a 5 day work week into a 4 day work week by working 4 10's and then take the one day vacation to make it into a 5 day weekend. I've done this many times and my boss has no problem with it.
Many of my coworkers have a family and luckily Boeing is very flexible in working from home or changing your work hours to pick you kid up from school or if there is an emergency. Just alert everyone you're in contact with, give them a cell phone number to call you at, and work when you can.
The company moves very slow when it comes to change. Moving data, changing servers, acquiring software, EVERYTHING. If you want something done, you essentially need to babysit the task other wise it will be in someone's email for weeks. Everything has to go through multiple change boards which usually meet once a week so if you are luckily extremely luckily it will be done in two days other wise you are looking at two weeks if it is of DIRE IMPORTANCE! If your task is not of high priority or has a work around it will be put off for a while since everyone else has a million things that need to get done NOW.
Don't expect to become wealthy by working at Boeing. Work until you are tired of the benefits.
Leadership isn't based off of talent, it's based off of experience. Sometimes this is okay, most of the times this is bad. Luckily, my manager is great but other people in my organization definitely have the manager from Office Space. Some of the best people to work with at Boeing aren't the management staff. They are either right in the cubical next to you or the ones that acquire the software/hardware you need. Most of them get tired of the constant debating that goes on in management so they stay as far away as possible.
I lucked out and happen to be here for the starting of a leadership forum and training in my organization. I want to move up and this seems to be the only way to really get exposure to the higher ups. Unfortunately most of these programs are in their infancy which leaves them very unorganized and open for modification. I'm hoping that I can learn from the best as quickly as possible otherwise I am just wasting my time here.

EVERYONE IS GOING TO RETIRE IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS! You had better change the Boeing image and way of business to appeal to a younger generation otherwise this company is going to tank and I definitely will not have my entire 401k and Pension based off of that.
