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.

    I have been working at Spirit AeroSystems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary is good, once you top out, but it takes forever to get there

    Cons

    the company has lost all , most of the experienced have been forced out due to their high salaries. The company has taken to hiring ,for example a KFC manager ,who has no clue about manufacturing and less of a clue on how to deal with people. We have been dehumanized to the point where all we are the hours we ,make, or don't. In my current area(I have been in for 8 months) we never hear a positive word from our manager and never one time have we been asked if we need anything to help us do our job. I have over 30 years and have never seen morale this low nor management this unwilling or incapable of supporting their crews.

    Advice to Management

    Remember your primary function is to support your crew, tackle any roadblocks put up by Q.A, maintenance and programming. Listen to the men and women who have spent decades mastering the skills needed to build the finest aero structures in the world instead of simply ignoring any input they may offer as it may mean you have to actually support your crew.
