Not the best place to work for
Level 4 Financial Planning Analyst (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSApril 26, 2016
* A typical day at work is very stressful and high pressure.
* Leadership expectations are vague or nonexistent
* I learned patience, perseverance, political savvy
* Management are nonexistent
* Co-workers are exceptional.
* Hardest part of the job is dealing with nonexistent expectations and getting reprimanded for the vague expectations.
* The most enjoyable part of the job is going home at night.
Pros
Benefits, Pay, Vacation Time
Cons
Anybody manager and above.

Schedule meetings; assist management team with communication/ emails/documents; coordinate and schedule flight arrangements and expense reports; engage with executive level management to coordinate customer visits and high-profile recognition events. The hardest part of the job is coordinating flight arrangements at the lowest price point. The most enjoyable is coordinating high-profile recognition events.

Green field company
Chief Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSApril 15, 2016
When I worked there everything was new due to starting a new company spinning off from Boeing.

I started the Program Management Function. At the time very few even understood what Program Management is so it was a 360 degree battle but worth it.

Here to Work
Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSApril 7, 2016
Various jobs in this industry. You clock in on time and be at your work station ready to work when the bell rings. Bell rings for lunch and for end of lunch and the end of shift. Work pace can be demanding depending on the job. Co-workers, not management is responsible for training you. Management is responsible for monitoring your job progress. Pace is controlled by the schedule set for planes to move. Various people with numerous backgrounds. Most enjoyable part of the job is a consistent pay check. Hardest part of the job may be the job itself, or self-motivation.

Spirit Aerosystems Staff Are Great
Administration/ Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKMarch 4, 2016
Security Director for Tulsa is great to work for. However, they allow the contracted security supervisor to get away with things he shouldn't. The Security Director does have more power over the contract than what is practiced. The contracted security staff needs much improvement.
Pros
Prominent name in the city
Cons
Contracted security group needs to be replaced
