    I worked at Spirit AeroSystems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good salaries, flexible work assignments. Some of the best inovations that come out of the aerospace industry happen here.

    Cons

    These are the same dinosaurs leftover from the Boeing days, they paid themselves hugh bonues before they proved they could run this company. Now they've proven they can't and bring in a hatchett man from Lockheed/Martin. Management should have been replaced a long time ago, it may be too late. I see a dim future here for a very long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone that know how to bid on new programs and watch them carefully. DO NOT stifel inovation you will be repeating Boeing's biggest mistake!
