Senior System Safety Engineer (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – June 27, 2017
Great place if you love Six Sigma training and incessant diversity sessions. Very Senior Management in Stratford, Connecticut operates in a vacuum of nepotism when it comes to hiring interns: Very difficult to get on if you're not a senior staffer's relative or child. Company spends too much time hiring people based on ethnicity as opposed ability to do the job. Then, they spend an inordinate amount of time having to create a paper trail documenting the failures of the failed-hire to prep for termination and the remaining staff has to pick up the slack.
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Horseheads, NY – February 15, 2017
Working at Sikorsky was what every child dreams of when they want to be an engineer. Working on cutting edge technology on products you see in the movies. The work is engaging, the managers were more or less all great. The projects are hands on.
However, the pay and benefits did not fit my expectations for the amount of education I invested in.
Very difficult place to work due to a bad corporate culture in the managements and HRs area. By removing very good managers, some managers and supervisors are given positions based on how politically and friendly support whoever promise them positions rather than based on their performance and achievement. Upper managements are so weak to monitor what is going in lower level managers. HR are close to some managements and they are poor in addressing employees' issue and fail to encourage managers to be accountable. As a result, I observed when government projects were terribly mismanaged due to substantially lack of knowledge in newly appointed mangers and supervisors and they get away with it by blaming employees.

A&P Mechanic (Former Employee) – Coatesville, PA – June 24, 2016
First off, I loved my job there. If it weren't for the cold winters and geographical separation from my family, then I would have stayed as long as I could. The product being built was unsurpassed and management was easy to work for. The pay was slightly lower than I expected, but usually there was overtime available. Advancement opportunities were there for people that took initiative. Aside from the unfortunate downturn in the economy which affected aircraft sales, the job was secure. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the final product being delivered to the customer and knowing that I played a part in making it better than any other aircraft in the sky.
