Intel was a very fast and focused company, and Boeing was a very different type of company.

Intel was a very focused company, no time was wasted and productivity was very high. There was no deviation from schedule.
Also there was very limited training, and since the schedule was very demanding, most of the time was spent on doing.
Boeing was a more relaxed company, with a lot training available, but very low salary. Boeing's problem in that group was that they did not have semiconductor management. Their management style was that of a commercial aircraft company. They thought, if they hire semiconductor engineers, they would become a semiconductor company and nothing could be further from the truth. The set of values have to there and a culture created that would produce innovation.
My choice of a company would be like Hughes Aircraft Company: forward looking, educationally oriented, and building a society rather focused on how much money it made.
Intel -Good Money, Boeing: learning Center
Intel- rushing to meet schedules; Boeing may be good for Aerospace/Mechanical Engineers, but very unsuitable for EE-Semiconductor Engineers
