You can't fire me either, I founded the company, but now I'm dead.

That is where I am going after I retired. See you soon.
The place has gone to the dogs, here is a CEO that can't write a legible sentence. Somehow I think he's only making it up that he's even got a job at my company. I'm coming back to haunt him.

I worked at Sikorsky when I was in college back in 1968. Nice to see they are still sleeping in the bathrooms and the helicopter equipment bays! Used to hear guys snoring in the bathroom stalls etc.
Ha! Ha! Ha!

The only time the stalls are full of people is at 8 or 9
when the engineers decide to come to work or 30 minutes before lunch and 30 minutes after.
The stalls are all empty during lunch time.

Sikorsky is full of yellow badges.
Temps that think they have a chance to get a job there after waiting through two years of lay offs and no benefits,hopeing for a chance to become a full time green badge.
The truth is that Sikorsky hires 2% of these people and you have to be a huge ass kisser!!!.
I enjoyed makeing good money while I was there but I also learned that money means nothing if your not happy where you work.

Im so glad I dont work there anymore,that place is full of headgame BACKSTABBERS.

There is no worse more toxic company out there. They destroy all they touch. They can't get out of their own way and will greedily take all their small vendors down with them!!!!!

10 years from now they will be a shell of that toxic company.
