    I have been working at Textron full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some talented people, some nice people.

    Cons

    Mostly idiots. Management is out of the dark ages. Very top heavy management style with no one to do the works (money spent on top managers). Horrible place to work if you're in IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump 1/2 your management team and hire talented worker bees. Quit hiring kids out of college and expecting them to preform as veterans. They're not.
