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

    Pros

    Easy work and job security

    Cons

    Micro managing, bureaucratic environment run by people who have been there for 30+ years. Overall the intelligence level of managers and employees in general is low. High influx of nepotism. Do not focus on proper training of employees or intellectual growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop yelling at each other and actually focus on the matter at hand. Stop worrying about trivial things like coming to work 5 minutes late.

    I worked at Sikorsky full-time

    Pros

    They make a really cool product and there is a lot of pride in providing helicopters to the US military

    Cons

    The company culture is a manufacturing mentality from 30 years ago. Very male dominated. The union is very strong and has very little respect for non-union. I have never experienced so much foul language from executive leadership. It is definitely a good ole boy club where its more about who you know. There is a ton of nepotism and you always have to watch your back because if you said something negative about someone, that just might be that person's cousin's wife and you will be impacted by it.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize your culture and hiring practices

    Pros

    Great job security during the middle east war. Cool product

    Old culture and individuals are promoted based on who they know and not by their performance. Unprofessional business environment with swearing in meetings and sexist comments. HR is out to protect the leadership team, not the employees. Very questionable ethical behaviors
