    Pros

    Probably the best reason to work at Spirit as a Technical Designer is you have an opportunity to gain experience. As of 2011, they do have a "tuition reimbursement" plan if you wish to attend additional education, so that is a plus as well.

    Cons

    Spirit tends to push long term contracts with little/no salary increase. With the increase in Cost of Living (including insurance premium spikes) it amounts to a downward slope for income the longer you remain (Current contract proposed is set to expire 2021). With that said, it's still a great place to work if you plan to move on to other aerospace companies, or elsewhere in the engineering world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The direct management I work with is great. They are very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. As for senior management, they have a disconnect from the workforce. Outside the company, words seem to speak louder than actions, however the reverse can be said within the company.

    No opinion of CEO
