5.0 of 5 stars

Phenomenal Opportunity for Real World Software Engineering Experience
Arlington, VA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Pay was the highest of any engineering student's internship that I had asked of in my school; Getting to know how industry works; Connecting with powerful people in the company, making great contacts; Working with professionals in the field I wanted to be in for a career; Practicing my software engineering skills in a safe, friendly, and helpful environment with very knowledgeable people; knowing that I was working for a prestigious, affluent company that plays an important role in keeping the United States safe on a very literal day-to-day basis.


Downers

There is honestly nothing that I disliked about working for The Boeing Company. The fact that it was around D.C. meant that traffic was always heavy, but I live near D.C., so it wasn't a turn off for me.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you're interested in getting hands-on software engineering practice, The Boeing Company is a great place to work. If you're interested in security clearances, The Boeing Company is one of the top DoD contractors, so there's always work to be done that involves a security clearance.


Advice to Management

The compensation far exceeded my expectations; hours are normal (8 hour work day) and can be made flexible; employee retention is high from what I've heard; I don't know enough about the promotion policies to give an educated answer; they do diversity well and the training felt full and complete.

Boeing pays you to work hard, learn, and become more valuable to them
Charleston, SC | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

The company and my coworkers placed a huge emphasis on making sure that I understood anything in which I was involved.

Traffic on the way to work?


Advice to Potential Interns

Start studying subjects such as aerospace and composites as soon as possible. Be respectful, helpful, and friendly to everyone you meet.

My department did well with employee retention, but I know that other departments did not do as well.

An exciting opportunity that took me to new places, gave me excellent work experience and a leg up on the competition.
Auburn, WA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning about what other parts of the company does, going on tours, the people and the effort to include me as an intern in the company.


Downers

The division between the floor workers and the engineers. Nothing severe, just a noticeable edge between the two groups.


Advice to Potential Interns

Boeing is a big company, which will have many down sides, such as the slow pace of change and aversion to risk. Yet Boeing does a great job with the number of job opportunities within the company, compensation, and they produce an exciting product.


Advice to Management

I would like to have the ability to go to graduate school full time and have that paid for by the company and then go to work for them full time, rather than having to get a graduate degree part time. I can see why they don't do this though.

Awesome Experience with Supportive Managers, Mentors and Co- Workers
Bellevue, WA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Meeting new people (other interns and co-workers)
Networking
Going to a new place
Developing new skills within IT
Expanding my current skills with IT


Downers

To short. Although I stayed on after my internship ended, other interns said they wish the internship was longer. They felt as though they could've learned more if they had more time.


Advice to Potential Interns

Gather as much information and knowledge about Boeing in the time that you have for your internship because the time fly so quickly and networking is KEY!


Advice to Management

No advice for management. My manager did an awesome job supporting me and helping me throughout my process. She was very patient and understanding.

Real Engineering projects that matter, not busywork or fetching coffee.
Bellevue, WA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The manager was extremely helpful and flexible. I broke my ankle the night before I was supposed to fly to Washington. He allowed me to start 3 weeks later, and I was treated the same as a regular employee. Everyone was very kind and helpful as I got around on crutches the whole summer!


Downers

Finding an apartment on my own was tough, as I was coming from Indiana.


Advice to Potential Interns

Go for it. They are a big company, but I was treated well and not as just another number.

Everett, WA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

The fact that I was treated like a newly hired engineer and given lots of responsibility.

An exceptional learning experience about both the company itself and real engineering practices
Seattle, WA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was treated like a full-time engineer, with full responsibility. I was able to network with many other programs and positions with in the company including executives, and other locations.


Downers

I was very pleased and found no real cons to my internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Experiences vary from person to person, so the only way to know for a fact is try it out for yourself, but I myself found the Boeing intern program very exceptional and a great learning experience. My mentors were very helpful but let me go off on my own. The intern program also provides many opportunities for networking, touring company labs and factories/offices, and recreation.
