Review Highlights

Pros
  • Sikorsky (and UTC) creates a learning culture and puts their money behind it with a very generous Employee Scholar Program (in 20 reviews)

  • I have been told that the Employee Scholar Program and stock award program has been limited lately (in 18 reviews)


Cons
  • Work-life balance: is always on the horizon; there seems an innate inability to eliminate bureaucracy (in 10 reviews)

  • Pay raises are very poor and no adjustment for cost of living (in 7 reviews)

    Pros

    The benefits that come with employment at a UTC company are excellent. 401K match, discounts at major retailers, and excellent insurance options.

    Cons

    The slow pace set on the shop floor can drive some people insane while others prefer it. Storms don't usually close the shop unless a State of Emergency is declared by the Governor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the bloat. Coatesville hired over 600 people in 2014 and the company slowed down. More errors, more hours on the aircraft, more people complaining they have nothing to do. Have someone walk through the shop on the weekend and see just what is NOT happening.

    Pros

    Nice weather most of the time, can be a bit warm at times, Some pretty areas down towards coast lines, Over all company offers challenges on daily activities. A lot of low hanging fruit as to (Speak)

    Cons

    Folks really do not like or want change as far as floor support ( Union ) hourly units, Nice folks in general but like slow pace and over time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why can things move very slowly until around 2:00 pm during the week and Saturdays ? MRB ? KEEP track on more of process flow and work load levels may require a bit more structure validation

    I worked at Sikorsky

    Pros

    Overall, Sikorsky is a good company to work for. I worked a full career with this company. They do not promote people who deserve to be promoted readily, and it is more often difficult to receive recognition for accomplishments, but do have a decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    The company is changing rapidly to cut cost, in part by eliminating long term employees, but in doing this they are losing a large talent pool that knows how to get things done in an effective manner. Wrong direction that needs to be re-thought.

    Pros

    It is a very big company (and location). Many different disciplines available, and you are able to move pretty freely if you so desire.

    Cons

    It is a very big company. If you are not proactive you will get lost in the crowd. Takes a while to learn the culture, but once you do you will be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace change.

    Pay. Benefits.ease of job.proximity to home nothing else

    Cons

    Co-workers are absolutely,miserable and live off of other people's miseries. The work is repetitive and a trained monkey and do it. Worry about layoffs every month. Pay does not equal the stress of people up with coworkers.your just another number there. Would NEVER WORK THERE AGAIN!!!
