    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.

    It's a strong company that's reliable. Good place to work that's involved with the community and makes a fun product.

    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.
