I worked at Sikorsky as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

- Pay was great for a summer internship!
- Worked with some awesome, talented individuals who took time to help interns understand processes and protocols at Sikorsky
- Lot of freedom in individual approach to assignments
- Open contribution in meetings and there is a stress on involvement for everyone
- Great projects and interesting things to see all around Sikorsky
- Ability to take classes while interning on concepts such as six sigma and lean
- Integration into the company through events and intern summer project
- Flexible work schedule

Cons

- Have to document your work time very specifically based off of the project you are working on
- Little freedom in project choice (must be working on something relevant at all times)
- The first few days were a complete waste due to the overly complex order of things (spent all of my time just getting set up)
