I have been working at Textron

Pros

Textron Corp offers its employees fairly strong job security, excellent pay compared to competitors, and an opportunity to further your education through tuition assistance.

Cons

Travel is often necessary and sometimes burdensome depending on your position. Typical office politics do occasionally interfere with the smooth flow of business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have no particular advice to current Management that I wouldn't also extend to any corporation in the world today.

    Pros

    Textron has some better divisions, but usually gives fair compensation, time off from work and many people don't have to work too hard. Some departments are filled with good people

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs, lots of hierarchy, aging buildings, some are required to work weekends. Some departments are filled with bad people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more cross functional training, bring in some fresh blood, make employees more excited about the company. Needs some flair.

    Textron places a large gap between management and hourly employees.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs make for a confusing operation. Promoting within the company makes for better relations.
