  1. Good Company

    Current Employee - Engineer in Bridgeport, CT
    Current Employee - Engineer in Bridgeport, CT

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

    Pros

    Good company, good wages, fun stuffs to do, intelligent colleagues, fair benefits. You will be given high class projects from day one. Helps with expereince

    Cons

    Benefits can be better. The fact that employees (except level 5 and higher) do not get a bonus at the end of the year is not too good.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs of your employees. Pay us bonus and give us a promotion when due. Don't use and dump us like we ain't important.

    Pros

    They have insurance and a 401k.

    Cons

    Everything else about the job is pretty much a con. Raises are nonexistent, appreciation is miniscule, recognition is absent all together, and the culture is worse than that of congress.

    Advice to Management

    SPEAK TO ONE ANOTHER! Quit being 7th grade children and start communicating to your peers, your direct reports, and your superiors! If you cannot communicate you are doomed to the stagnation you have already found.
