    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Working with some of the best minds in the aerospace industry.

    Cons

    Management makes stupid decisions when it comes to project management. Non-technical personnel make technical decisions which negatively impact across platform. No opportunities for training in subject field. Management is lackadaisical when it comes to providing money for training, but they will spend millions on bonuses for upper management. More concerned about making money than spending money on the front end to make the end game easier.

    Advice to Management

    Let the engineers do their job. They know more about what they're doing than you do. Fire the people that are quoting on business. All they have done is given you an albatross to hang around your neck and Spirit pumps millions of dollars into a project that will not yield much money. You send a senior manager to Tulsa and spends $25 million in overage to get project back on track and the manager gets a bonus? On what planet does that make sense?
