    I have been working at Sikorsky full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Having been a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp, the pay and benefits have been the best I have had. An Employee Scholar Program that pays 100% of your tuition and books for going back to school is one of the best perks.

    Cons

    Management is currently in a state of upheaval. There are many meetings that MGMT level employees attend, and many communications to the rest of us about how things are so great and getting better, but nothing seems to get done. There are so many classes that need to be taken, so much need to make every department look like all the rest in the company, that jobs don't get done.

    Advice to Management

    A new era is upon us; so many great things we can make happen. Cut the overhead management level down and let the employees, A) know just how much this company depends on them, and B) do their jobs.

    I worked at Sikorsky full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flex time, parking is good, nice offices (albeit tiny cubicles), escalators (for my knees) 20 word min is reduce loud for filling out this web form.

    Cons

    People of three years and twenty+ years treated as though they are the same Assumptions of your technical expertise made in a knee jerk fashion No managing of engineers, just technical data Very little communication especially in expectations Very unique jargon is assumed to be universal and an understanding of it determines how your competence is viewed There is an elitist view that they know and can do more than anyone in the industry, my experience is very much counter to that

    Advice to Management

    Ensure communication is the key element when dealing with employees Ensure that a 'good old boy' network does not run off exceptionally qualified people
