    I worked at Sikorsky as an intern

    Pros

    Phenomenal pay. Big company. Nice work environment if you like air conditioning and cubicles. People are kind. People are passionate about helicopters like no other. People care about one another.

    Cons

    Cafeteria food can get tiring real quick. It's a 9 to 5pm, Don't expect anything more. Engineers can be awkward.

    Advice to Management

    Intern program has a lot of potential. Make it its best by actually implementing intern feedback. Also, it wouldn't hurt to provide housing and house us together.

    I worked at Sikorsky full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of experienced individuals and history and top of the field for helicopter design and development.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic like most other aerospace contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of your history, live your mission and relentlessly eliminate bureaucracy. Use your expertise in rotorcraft design to innovate in smaller markets like small UAVs and quad copters that are bound to disrupt the large helicopter industry in the future.

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

    Pros

    Very good pay for an intern. There is a large variety of positions to switch to. Very interesting product.

    Cons

    Very stagnent and dull office environment. Better description of rolls should be sought after. Shouldn't hire so many interns when they don't plan on hiring any for full time positions.

    Advice to Management

    Try to connect more with the people you work with.

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

    Pros

    The pay is descent for a large corporation if you have years of experience and at least 4 years of college

    Cons

    The walk from the parking lot to the building is a long walk and then the walk through the building to your desk is further

    Advice to Management

    None. I have no words for management. Sikorsky was bought by Lockheed and most of management positions have retired or left as their positions were no longer needed.
