Aircraft Contractor (Current Employee) – Coatesville, PA – December 30, 2015
An OK place to work. They treat employees fairly for the most part. nothing great or bad about this place. I have worked at facilities that send contractors home when it is slow,,, so they have been good at finding us work instead of sending us home without pay. However, alot of uncertainty heading into 2016.
Cafeteria on site, three or four break rooms with vending machines.
My department lacks co-worker profesionalism towards each other.

Job pays the bills and good place to put on your resume but no advancement, managers no available at all times, no raises and the workforce always fighting with each other to look good for advancement.
job to pay bills and good to use the company name for resume

This was a very hard company to work for,short breaks with a small cafeteria that had to many people to feed,also we as contractors had to park in a satellite parking area and be bused to the job ,,working with their QA department was very difficult.
Sr. Systems Engineer/Architect (Former Employee) – Stratford, CT – August 25, 2015
Sikorsky was a nice place to work; a lot of good folks there. The entire SE Group is arrogant and dysfunctional, but the manager is very good. What really stood out to me was how little concern was given to the Air Force / Customer / Product and how much concern with their own careers; it prompted me to say in a meeting "Doesn't the SE group even care?" NO feedback accepted by SE; that part was frustrating as the leads were from Sales and other areas outside SE, did not listen, and thought they 'knew it all'. The other groups I interacted with were all very good and conscientious.
Overall, I would recommend working for Sikorsky, with the caveat that the SE group is bizarre. Please Note: This opinion is based on my experience and is only an opinion from someone in the industry for over 30 years (not my first rodeo).
They had me sit through training for 3 months for a six month position with an other women for the same position who's cousin was in charge of the project. after the three months they let me go but she continued to work for them.
