Benefits and Perks
Paid time off is scarce, with only about half of workers receiving paid vacation and just under one in three workers receiving sick leave. A strong majority of workers save up for retirement through a 401(k) plan. Health insurance is part of the package for almost all workers, and for the greater part of workers, dental coverage is too. Sikorsky folks also make good use of tuition reimbursement, life insurance, gym membership, and flexible hours.
