Pros

Great place to learn while in school and the compensation is great for a college student. The people were willing to help you out on projects however at the same time challenged you to figure it out.

Cons

I didn't really have any cons while working at Sikorsky during my time.

    Pros

    Always learning - fast-paced environment with a ton of very educated people with a wide variety of backgrounds
    Never boring - always challenged with new obstacles, new ideas for improvement, constantly trying to better the product or the process (which for me was a great environment to work in)
    Some staff are very open-minded, willing to listen to ideas if you back them up, and ready to give you a chance to run with a project
    Values their employees and provides benefits and independence

    Cons

    Very demanding! Which can also be a pro
    Union culture in some parts of the shop can be a challenge for industrial engineers/management trying to make a difference but that happens in a lot of manufacturing environments (this actually can go in the pros as well because it challenges the management's communication skills and can foster a great working relationship out of that challenge between the shop floor and the engineering/management teams)
    It can be hard to move up/advance, and the management changes very regularly. The constant restructurting can be difficult to handle when so much depends on the hierarchy in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Use the hierarchy to your advantage rather than as a way to inhibit productivity
