Family-oriented company....but not for the younger generation

Analyst, Information Technology (Former Employee)
Stratford, CT

I worked at Sikorsky full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat benefits
Unbeatable pay
Paid Tuition
Holidays the entire company closes down.

ConsVery old environment, slow to changes in technology, a lot of the time people are hired based on who they are related to rather than their actual skill.

This company is a company you can quickly get sucked into as the money is great, but its extremely difficult to leave your field once you've started in it.

People don't typically leave UTC

Advice to Senior ManagementSome people are great assets if used correctly, but you cant expect someone to work effectively without the right tools.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
