I have been working at Sikorsky

Pros

Nobody really watches what you do, so like many people there, you can walk around and do nothing all day.

Cons

Depressing work environment, people are stuffed into to cubes, closets, basements. People can stay there as low performers for years and instead of firing them, they just move them to another department for someone else to deal with. Everything is process, policy, lean manufacturing and ACE but nobody really follows it! UTC doesn't value any experience that one had outside of UTC. New people are brought in at market value and existing employees are very underpaid. The company doesn't invest in people or systems, only engineers. Boeing and other competitors are light years ahead in systems and human capital. People come to Sikorsky because nobody else wants them.

    Pros

    You are able to work independently without having anyone breathing down your neck.

    Cons

    If you don't ask questions, you will be lost. Also, Sikorsky has a policy of not rehiring contract employees after their contract expires, even if there exists a position that they have been trained for and are qualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please change your policy towards contract employees. You lose valuable trained employees by not rehiring them after their contract expires.
