I worked at Sikorsky as an intern for less than a year

Pros

- Pay was great for a summer internship!
- Worked with some awesome, talented individuals who took time to help interns understand processes and protocols at Sikorsky
- Lot of freedom in individual approach to assignments
- Open contribution in meetings and there is a stress on involvement for everyone
- Great projects and interesting things to see all around Sikorsky
- Ability to take classes while interning on concepts such as six sigma and lean
- Integration into the company through events and intern summer project
- Flexible work schedule

Cons

- Have to document your work time very specifically based off of the project you are working on
- Little freedom in project choice (must be working on something relevant at all times)
- The first few days were a complete waste due to the overly complex order of things (spent all of my time just getting set up)

    I have been working at Sikorsky full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Sikorsky (and UTC) creates a learning culture and puts their money behind it with a very generous Employee Scholar Program. The work environment is challenging because of resource constraints, but it is also rewarding. One is rewarded for keeping a positive attitude, despite the pressures.

    Cons

    Despite wanting to become a fluid, matrix organization, there are silos that are difficult to break. It is common to see employees scope their responsibilities narrowly and decline to get involved in collaborative problem-solving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greater transparency & communication, particularly during times of significant change, such as the current enterprise-wide restructuring.
