Great Experience, other than the shortfalls of management and the union higher-ups

Former Employee - Assembler in Horseheads, NY

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

Pros

Challenging. There was alot of work and little downtime if you knew how to keep yourself engaged. The engineering department was great, many of them personable and always happy to answer questions that commonly would arise.

Cons

Inept upper mangement, weak union and a "local boys" only attitude to boot. I watched inept workers get promoted and brown-nosers get raises on a regular basis. It seemed if you wern't from the local area, the union treated you as an outsider, regardless if you were in the same union.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promoting ineptitude. Start listening to your lead mechanics and assemblers, give them what they need.

    Pros

    The one thing no one can complain about working for this company, is that the money is very good. With some time in the company, you can post for new jobs.

    Cons

    Job security is not great, and very dependent on the economy and wars. One needs a bit of time in to move to a more suitable job. Also changing to a shift that works well for employee can be a real issue with out seniority.
