Textron places a large gap between management and hourly employees.

Quality Auditor (Former Employee)
Wilmington, OH

I worked at Textron

ProsThe medical benefits were very good and there was a retirement plan that was fair. It was a union shop which gave better security, at least while it was still in operation.

ConsThe last few years they quit matching stock options. We went through 5 plant managers in 4 years before the doors closed in 2009. Textron needs to focus more on just the bottom dollar.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo many chiefs make for a confusing operation. Promoting within the company makes for better relations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
