Pros
  • Sikorsky (and UTC) creates a learning culture and puts their money behind it with a very generous Employee Scholar Program (in 20 reviews)

  • Great pay and benefits, and a employee scholar program that anyone can take advantage of (in 18 reviews)

Cons
  • Work-life balance: is always on the horizon; there seems an innate inability to eliminate bureaucracy (in 10 reviews)

  • Pay raises are very poor and no adjustment for cost of living (in 7 reviews)

    I have been working at Sikorsky full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, support continuing education (masters degrees). Flexible work schedule. Good internal job opportunities. Very good annual review & Merritt system.

    Cons

    Company recently just sold to another parent company. Future benefits and job opportunities may change when purchase is finalized. Alittle behind on technology.

    Pros

    The intern program was focused on developing the interns and preparing them for a career with the organization. All interns were well taken care of and a genuine relationship was developed with hiring managers

    Cons

    At time there was too much emphasis on professional development courses as opposed to actual work. Best way to grow is to put in the work!

    Advice to Management

    More hands on work would be appreciated. Also have work ready to be done as opposed to the intern waiting around to get some

    Pros

    Flexibility with school hours and work schedule. Intern pay overwhelmingly is better than anywhere else nearby New Haven. Get lots of exposure to new platforms and networking opportunities abound.

    Cons

    they need to increase sicks days to reflect the amount of time worked. currently only have 2 days a year, which for a summer internship is fine. for someone working year round however, it is not enough.

    Advice to Management

    the revolving door of upper management is very apparent and does not reflect well. Clearly not one free thinker among upper management. I can write an algorithm that would do their job.

    Pros

    Fantastic Product. Employees care about impact to our military. Veterans understand the needs of the customer and will do what is necessary to make it right.

    Cons

    Limited Merit increases. Union is too strong and there are too many employees who do not care and should no longer be working on the aircraft.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your experienced employees. Stop over committing to customer regarding price and schedule to deliver aircraft. You destroy credibility.
