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.

    I worked at Spirit AeroSystems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job was stable and I had a lot to do while working for the company. I really enjoyed learning new things and it helped me build the confidence to reach my dreams. It paid very well.

    Cons

    At times there was always a constant threat of getting laid off, and management were told to ensure that employees does not get high marks on the record to avoid giving out raises.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking bonus money...the people worked under you deserved some respect.
