Pros

Benefits, salaries, chance to work on a product that you can actually see the result of your efforts.

Large company management structure - can get lost in the shuffle. Reorganizations are constantly taken place with little regard to employee input or satisfaction.

    I worked at Sikorsky full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    looks good on paper when you're applying somewhere else...

    Cons

    everything! the culture, the declining benefits, the man's world attitude, hiring freezes, constant threat of lay-offs, furlough days every year, terribly low pay, and horrible office space... just to mention a few things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop caring so much about what the outside world thinks of your company or keeping up your "image" and start caring about the people who break their backs wo0rking for you just to have the carpet pulled out from under their feet in a layoff.... while you spend millions on landscaping, executive suite remodels, and outside helecopter sculptures..

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

    Pros

    - Good working environment. Plenty of time for deadlines and within our own immediate department you can express yourself and engage in good work conversations.
    - Technology is somewhat up to date. Good computers and software is available for you.
    - Good benefits including healthcare and time off. Time off includes vacation, personal days, and sick days which you have plenty of.
    - HR is understanding of your personal situations and will work with you and your management.

    Cons

    - Salary is a bit under national average.
    - Career growth can be limiting. You may not be promoted for a long time. Sometimes requires you to move to under department.
    - IT support is very low. Technical issues may take months to fix.
    - Training is hard to come by. You learn from your coworkers but be expected to teach yourself.
    - Sometimes engineering is pressured by other groups (i.e. upper management, purchasing) to make decisions.
    - Be expected, as an engineer, to do a lot of management type work (i.e. paper work, releasing of documents, contract work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Purchasing should not be allowed to influence engineering decisions. Purchasing should work with engineering more to help them complete their job. Sometimes engineers know more about purchasing contracts and deliveries than they do.
