    I worked at Sikorsky (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Sikorsky full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You won't find a more interesting industry than aerospace. Company & products will be around for a long time. An acquisition by Lockheed means opportunity to transfer to other jobs around the country.

    Cons

    Easy to lose sight of the cool product when you're stuck in layers of red tape and middle management. Seems like most people either leave after 5 years or are lifers.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a middle ground between micromanagement and lack of management. Encourage people to try new ideas instead of dragging heels and embracing the status quo.

    I have been working at Sikorsky full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work in the aviation field and be a part of the next generation of helicopters. They have many different areas to work in from assembly, to machining and blade manufacturing which all have different skill set to perform the task.

    Cons

    A lot of levels of management. Not to many cons they pay decently and there are different opportunities within the company

    Pros

    job postings procedure is fair and effective. This translate to opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    Many senior employees are territorial and target junior employees as over zealous. Junior employees have something that senior employees do not have.... "FRESH EYES"

    Advice to Management

    Derek Jones had a wonderful routine wherein he regularly held impromptu meetings with shop floor people entailing what was going on in the department.

    Pros

    Problems were interesting and the work was challenging. They were lenient on time off and the pay was decent.

    I have been working at Sikorsky full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot with this company for the 8 years I have been here. When it is busy, it is busy. If you like overtime then you can work 7 days a week if the work is there.

    Cons

    Due to oil and gas prices the workload has cut down. Lost a lot of AC this year. Lack of communication with upper management.
