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

    Pros

    Good salaries, flexible work assignments. Some of the best inovations that come out of the aerospace industry happen here.

    Cons

    These are the same dinosaurs leftover from the Boeing days, they paid themselves hugh bonues before they proved they could run this company. Now they've proven they can't and bring in a hatchett man from Lockheed/Martin. Management should have been replaced a long time ago, it may be too late. I see a dim future here for a very long time.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone that know how to bid on new programs and watch them carefully. DO NOT stifel inovation you will be repeating Boeing's biggest mistake!

    I worked at Spirit AeroSystems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Potential. Decent salary. Decent amount of work.

    Cons

    Experienced mid career engineers have little opportunities to lead: Lack of work/life balance. some MRB engineers work 80 hrs/WK. lack of mgmt common sense: meetings held in hallway disturb working environment. High turnover is due to these aspects. It felt like the work was "rote" cookie cutter "engineering" rather than creative design and analysis.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more A&P certified mechanics instead of HS drop outs on the manufacturing floor, less stupid mistakes. Allow experienced employees the ability to share their strengths with Spirit.
