Good, the company is strong but has a long way to go before it is world-class

I have been working at Spirit AeroSystems

Pros

Excellent opportunities to be on the front line of exciting new programs. Good benefits and pay.

Cons

Antiquated systems, outsourced IT makes problem resolution a huge hassle, lots of pressure which should be expected in a fast-paced manufacturing company. Management treats the worker bees as expendable resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach in your annual reviews. Management should be more actively engaged in developing employees instead of once a year at review time.

    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 worked at Spirit AeroSystems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits & salaries. upward mobility possible. Employee base is experienced, with a lot of good people.

    Cons

    Lots of new management, often from companies in unrelated fields &/or companies that are failing. General impression given to employees is that they are "plug & play". It appears that the latest CEO is following a policy he used in other companies of reducing direct work force by 10% annually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start appreciating the skilled work force you have before you lose it.
