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 Management

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.

    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.

  2. Great Place to work for people just getting out of college.

    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.
