Company in turmoil, don't bother

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tulsa, OK

I have been working at Spirit AeroSystems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood salary. The core competencies perform very well. Fabrication capability is extraordinary in Wichita for sustaining programs. Lots of Opportunity to try different positions

ConsThe Tulsa facility is nothing like the Wichita facility. You basically have the same group of Middle managers from the Rockwell/Boeing days running operations in Tulsa. Total chaos and it will always be that way until Spirit cleans up that mess. New Programs completely unable to recover from initial bidding process. No/little fabrication available for expedite situations so you are at the mercy of the suppliers. Losing battle. The opportunity for advancement comes from people quitting.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart over in Tulsa. Give the Operations/Middle managers a "different opportunity". They need it. You have lost money in Tulsa for YEARS....learn from it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
