Former Employee - Director in Providence, RI
Former Employee - Director in Providence, RI

I worked at Textron full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

- used to be international but Kautex still is and you can get some good experience
- if you were on the Pension, then it was worth sticking around
- fly in Private Jet here and there was nice and saved time at the Airport

Cons

-2 to 3 tier employee systems, the Haves, the have nots and worse the folks that have nothing
-Health Care Plans
-No Pension
- 401 to linked to company stock price
- relocation program
- "good ole boys club still"
-if you want to learn why "cash" is important this is a good job to learn from

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recommend selling and dividing up to owners that want to invest in people and processes. Textron used to be known as that type of Company when it first started out and about the early 90's lost it way to where alot of the employees will tell you it's just a job.

    Pros

    Stable job if you've been with the company for at least 10-15 years

    Cons

    Cessna management doesn't care about employee's. One employee over heard a senior management tell a secretary who asking about the mechanics being over worked due to massive overtime, that all of the mechanics were just like any other tool the company had. When they wear out, they'll just replace them. Also, have had only two raises in since 2009 and they didn't keep up with inflation. Hence, the standard of living has been going backwards for going on four years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your biggest asset/resource is the employee's. How they go so goes the company. It would be a great idea to promote within the company instead of bringing someone from outside who doesn't know anything about, in this case, aviation.
