I worked at Spirit AeroSystems

Pros

The best reason I can give anyone as a pros for working at The Spirit Aero System Co. in wichita,Ks would have to be the income.

Cons

They have a very long list of managers who are not qualified for there position and you are micro managed by even managers from other departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employs, ask them how things are going not the people who have no clue how to preform the job. Although most will not tell the truth for fear of management retaliation to which Spirit AeroSystems in Wichita, Ks has a large problem with.

    I have been working at Spirit AeroSystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It is a large company that has a large union, good pay for the industry (although certainly not the best in the industry), and good benefits like paid sick time and vacation plus some of the best medical benefits in town.

    Cons

    Management sometimes has a lack of respect towards their employees, good ideas from people on the floor are often never implemented even if they are cost-saving and would improve quality, The union that participates in this company has lost almost all their power over the years and has very little influence anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to any upper management would be work closer with your guys on the floor, get with your first level managers and work closer with the guys on the shop floor, because those are the guys making the products, you need to talk with them to understand what we need to do to improve quality and cost performance.

    Pros

    Great benefits with numerous opportunities to move within the company. Long term security for many.

    Cons

    Numerous changes in management strategy causes numerous layoffs. Technology and strategies are outdated and very not keeping up with advances in technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT management has outsourced, but not been able to successfully utilize the resources fully.
