More Pros and Cons

  1. "Great job!"

    I worked at Sikorsky as a contractor

    Pros

    Everyone is so nice. Training is comprehensive. They allowed me to work overtime at the warehouse whenever I wanted to. It was a great experience and I wish I could do it again.

    Cons

    The only con I could possibly come up with is that the contract was only for 2 years and you can only go permanent if something became available in that time. I, unfortunately, was there right before the buy-out and they let all of their contractors go.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Every manager I dealt with was great!

    There is a little bit of unpredictability since the company was only acquired by Lockheed Martin last year.

    Doing a great job, keep it up.

    I have been working at Sikorsky as an intern

    Pros

    With the right boss you'll be able to do a bunch of different true engineering and technical jobs throughout the summer

    Cons

    You might get stuck doing non-technical work if you don't make an effort to ask for new assignments

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to ensure that intern supervisors are providing enough work to interns. I was lucky to have things to do, but some of my coworkers were not so fortunate

    I have been working at Sikorsky full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The mission is to bring people home everywhere, every time. This makes it rewarding and satisfying to support our daily objectives. There seems to be lots of new opportunities to collaborate across Lockheed and likely new career opportunities for those interested in other challenges.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of transition after Sikorsky was acquired by Lockheed, but there has been good and positive communication throughout the year.

    Advice to Management

    Preserve the brand heritage and the culture. It makes Sikorsky effective and a great place to work.

    I have been working at Sikorsky full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The product that we produce is an amazing aircraft. I am proud to work on the helicopters that we make. My coworkers in the engineering group are supportive and are great to bounce ideas off.

    Cons

    I do not have many downsides to list about this company. I am happy to be working here. The government training that is required for certain programs can be tedious but it is necessary.
