I worked at Sikorsky as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Large engineering company that has many different departments that offer numerous opportunities. As an intern the pay is great and usually they give you a stipend for housing. I recommend going to a department that is new to you, but is something that interests you. You will learn a lot and have an opportunity to work on some really cool things.

Cons

In engineering departments you develop a sort of tunnel vision when working on projects. It is usually small things that you contribute but never have the opportunity to see the big picture. Also, saw that it was hard to move up in the company quickly. Managers are usually 40+ years of age.
