Challenging assignment with my end product being used in the future. Interns get exactly the same benefits and access that full time employees do, so paid vacation days were amazing for when family came into town. I had access to buildings that all regular employees do, so walking around the assembly plant during my off-hours to see all the planes being built was one of my favorite things about the entire summer.
Boeing was not very helpful when trying to find housing for the summer, all they give is a bunch of money to cover the expenses and a few suggestions for extended stay hotels (which doesn't make financial sense for an intern). A more organized housing list where interns have stayed in the past with approximate costs would be nice. Also they could do a better job setting up more intern social activities outside of work, some of my friends only knew of a few other interns, which shouldn't be the case for a company that hires as many interns as Boeing.
Advice to Potential Interns
You will get out of your internship what you put into it. Boeing will not bend over backwards and will not hold your hand to get your assignment done, but people are more than happy to help if you ask. Initiative is key.
Advice to Management
I only spent a short time within the company, with a single group. I did not have any complaints, and even if I did, I haven't been around long enough or had a large enough sample size to make any real conclusions about management or benefits.
