Pros

The pros are that they are willing to work with the employee to achieve the very best product in the industry.

Cons

Some of the programs the corporate offices have implemented seem to be more of a waist of time rather than what they were designed to be.

    Pros

    Employee Scholar Plan - Better than most tuition reimbursement plans
    Higher than average starting salary
    Freedom to set your own goals for Employee Evaluations
    Freedom to apply to other departments by applying through the internal system

    Cons

    Even when the economy is good, pay raises are lacking when compared to other Corporations in the Industry.
    Although Health Care Premiums are on par with Industry, the coverage is not.
    Lack of a Vision Care Plan
    Lack of clearly defined chain-of-command
    More bosses than co-workers
    Even though there are multiple US locations, there is very limited growth potential without moving to Stratford, CT
    Training opportunities are severly limited for remote sites (those not located near Stratford, CT)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that the salaries stay relevant to the responsibility levels when compared to Industry and be more transparent, to front-line and middle management, in regards to this data.
    Take advantage of technologies, such as video conferencing, to provide more training opportunities for employees at remote locations.

    I worked at Sikorsky full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Typically people were easygoing and friendly. I met nice folks throughout the facility. The work environment was not that stressful. I have been told that the Employee Scholar Program and stock award program has been limited lately. Sikorsky's products (Blackhawk, CH-53K, etc) are awe inspiring and the factory floor is impressive. If you're interested in working there, it's worth an interview. Trust your gut, if it's a good fit, then it's a good fit. If not, you may not stay there long term. I wish I could "buy a week" of vacation at my current job, that's a great feature. In fact, with Christmas week off you can escape CT for a whole month!

    Cons

    Work schedule was 6:30-3:00 M-F through 9-5:30 M-F but no real flex time. Work was repetitive at times. IT services leave something to be desired. Not the best place for creative types.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Switch to a 9/80 work schedule. Jeff Pino knows how to give inspiring speeches. Sikorsky's products are really amazing, empower employees to be part of that amazing product design effort each and every day.
