    Pros

    I work with a great team of knowledgable engineers that are also helpful and willing to share their knowledge. The work environment in friendly

    Cons

    Spirit struggles to hit targets for gross revenue. The cost cutting measures are a bit over the top. The health insurance becomes weaker every year. The overall benefits and Salary are slipping downward.

    Advice to Management

    Most of Spirit's best talent has left. You can only build so-so products with so-so talent. Your "will only work in a perfect world" plan have dug a 500 million dollar hole.

    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 Management

    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!
