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 Management

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.

    Pros

    they really do try and take good care of their employees and the vacation time is perfecto! The pay is good but not great.

    Cons

    Lots of politics and old time backdoor handshaking at all levels. The union reps are more worried about their corvette payment then they are worried about the company being profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Union and you will go a lot farther. 12hrs of work for 8hrs of pay isn't really the best way to treat your salary employees and the mandatory overtime is no fun. better planning on your part would go along ways to employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    it is a well structured company with very nice people to work with from shop floors, engineering, IT, supply chain management, etc.. If you know the subject, you can work with people very well to implement your new ideas and people will respect you. You can learn a lot from metal to composite and other stuffs.

    Cons

    each position is well defined and because of job security, you are not expected to cross the line to other's turfs. because of high rate demand and quality improvement, it is hard to implement new technologies at the productions, except if it is driven by the productions.

    Advice to Management

    all managers I know are very good and supportive. and they are trying their best to do their job but they are very much stressed out because of current high demand on their jobs.
