It is OK for now.
Aircraft Contractor (Current Employee) –  Coatesville, PADecember 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.
Pros
Cafeteria on site, three or four break rooms with vending machines.
Cons
My department lacks co-worker profesionalism towards each other.

UTC - Sikorsky
Manager (Current Employee) –  Coatesville, PAOctober 30, 2015
Talented teams and individuals working highly complex manufacturing scenarios and platforms -- manufacturing helicopters.

Recent key appointments to leadership positions appear to be prompted by jockeying or paybacks within the past year-- since the announcement of a potential sale of the company.

In fact, the confirmed company sale from UTC to Lockheed is very positive. With luck, the un-vetted appointments will be quickly discovered and corrected with the new ownership.
Pros
Industry leading teams and individuals
Cons
Recent downsizing and un-vetted appointments

Instrumentation Engineer (Current Employee) –  FloridaAugust 30, 2015
In my experience Sikorsky Aircraft has lately become a training ground for straight out of college engineers. They come, we train them, they leave.

Nice place to work, but SE Department...
Sr. Systems Engineer/Architect (Former Employee) –  Stratford, CTAugust 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).
Pros
Good work and people
Cons
SE Group
