    Pros

    It is a very big company (and location). Many different disciplines available, and you are able to move pretty freely if you so desire.

    Cons

    It is a very big company. If you are not proactive you will get lost in the crowd. Takes a while to learn the culture, but once you do you will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change.

    Pros

    Pay. Benefits.ease of job.proximity to home nothing else

    Cons

    Co-workers are absolutely,miserable and live off of other people's miseries. The work is repetitive and a trained monkey and do it. Worry about layoffs every month. Pay does not equal the stress of people up with coworkers.your just another number there. Would NEVER WORK THERE AGAIN!!!

    Advice to Management

    Move to a,different,state

    Communication is terrible throughout, employees aren't able to express their creativity, union v. salary issues, need to be very proactive and change jobs to move up

    Pros

    great place to start as Sikorsky looks good on any resume. Their Employee Scholar Program is a great way to get your masters degree and they will pay for it! Week 52 is closed for factory shut down, so essentially another week of vacation. Can move around departments and UTC to advanced your career and get a change of pace. You'll need to do this if you ever want to earn more $. Decent medical benefits, dental was just OK. Some really cool products and undoubtedly make the best helicopter available.

    Cons

    When you take a job here, make sure to negotiate your salary really high as UTC rarely gives out raises. Expect a raise and review every 18 months and the pay bump to be about 0 - 2 % increase. Most people will end up leaving as their pay is no longer in the competitive market. Union runs the company and there is a great "us vs them" mentality. If you do anything with the union, expect a few "tunbacks" or grievances issued against you. UTC as a whole needs to review this toxic relationship. Layoffs a plenty - estimate one per year. HR and the company never seem to have a correct amount of workers but it seems overtime is always given out. Advancement is not realistic here. Expect to work in your role for 7 - 10 years before being considered for a promotion. Nepotism is common. Expect to see departments where 5 people all have the same surname and treat their department like some secret society. Thus, like the other reviews, and "old boys" club is clear and present here. That being said, Sikorsky seemed to be hyper focused on hiring minorities for all managerial jobs without looking at qualifications.
