Unpredictable place to work
Trade Compliance Analyst (Current Employee), CTJune 13, 2015
Pros: The starting salary is good
Cons: The merit increases are poor and there is no stability in the company
Sikorsky is not a stable place to work right now. There is too much turmoil within the company. I would not recommend leaving your job to come work for Sikorsky right now

Good benefits, bad culture
Project Manager (Current Employee), Stratford, CTMay 28, 2015
The company provides decent benefits but stand out with their exceptional employee scholar program under UTC. Very old style culture and hard to move up unless you know somebody.

Naval Hawk Integrated Logistics Support
Material Supply Support Manager MH-60R/S (Current Employee), Stratford, CTMarch 7, 2015
A typical day at work consists of me logging in to my laptop and seeing if there are any emails pertaining to the customer requiring an expedited delivery of a part that they cannot get through their own supply system. From there I check our system to see if we have the part in stock. If we do have it, I get permission to use money from our contractual budget and ship it to the customer immediately. If the part is not in stock, I contact the designated buyer for that part and they coordinate with our supplier on the price and time that it will take for us to get the part. If the part is not too expensive and we can get it immediately I get permission to purchase and send it to the customer immediately. I also create purchase requisitions for contractually designated maintenance and services. Monthly I receive and enter invoices for the work that is performed under their respective contracts. I track the flight hours for the MH-60R and MH-60S helicopters as reported from the customer. I also generate customer service notifications for engineering changes and instructions to the customer.

Sikorsky sits at the top of the global rotorcraft industry. From the impressive legacy of the Blackhawk helicopter to the new X2 technology aircarft, Sikorsky has the finest engineers out there. Challenging work, excellent pay, modern offices and an ever-improving managment/operations system, means this is a great place to work

Supervisor (Former Employee), Stratford, CTMarch 1, 2015
This company offers great benefits. Unionized work force is what slows overall production due to senior management trying not to anger them.

Excellent opportunities if you work hard. Not a great work/life balance.
International Military Program Manager (Former Employee), Stratford, CTDecember 11, 2014
I was able to travel all over the world, however, I also traveled a lot in CONUS to oversee manufacturing. There is a lot of pride in the product and the level of quality is very high. Co-workers were there for each other. Hardest part of the job - no work/life balance. Most enjoyable part of the job - seeing the customer delighted with the product.

Great People Struggling with Economic and Managerial Challenges
Earned Value Analyst (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALJuly 28, 2014
Pros: great people who really care about the customer
Cons: long hours, low pay, and low morale
Very stressful environment with extrememly low morale. Several layoffs over the past two years have resulted in overwork for the remaining employees. Frequent restructuring of management has also resulted in uncertainty and inefficiency. Compared to other defense contractors I've worked for, Sikorsky doesn't compare well as a company.

Industrial Engineer (Former Employee), Shelton, CTJune 3, 2014
I learned how to work in a professional environment while in college, and it carried over when I got the job offer fresh out of college. I decided to focus on school because I realized I can better utilize my natural gifts in a more business oriented setting, and am now 3 classes away from obtaining my MBA with a concentration in finance.
