    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Sikorsky (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Big Co., Decent pay, Education benefits were good, Clean clutter free environment. Great workforce on the floor, But there all gone now.

    Cons

    Forever changing, Cant seem to get it right, A.C.E. is killing it, Again its not what you know its who you know, No overtime It use to be you could have as much as you want, which should tell you alot, Agusta says it perfectly. "If were working OT were doing something wrong".

    Advice to Management

    Go somewhere else, non aviation related.

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

    Pros

    Great working directly with the customer. Sikorsky project lead is like a deputy program manager in most other company's. Opportunity to manage multiple programs.

    Cons

    Limited authority due to the weak matrix organization. Matrix organization would work great on all programs if proper processes and authors was give to program managers.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce the proper matrix organization structure

    Pros

    Awesome money. High School Grad can make $100K + with OT (FL and Conn locations).

    Cons

    FL & Conn are Union shops (for now ).
    Fellow employees who do not work or do not work too hard get pay increases like the motivated employees. Nepotism and cronyism are very blatant and rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Boeing is hiring.
