    Pros

    Interesting product line: Helicopters, Armored Vehicles, Smart Bombs, Private Jets Diversified Conglomerate Global Business Units locations History of business (proven)

    Cons

    Old workforce Workplace feels like an old high school at times Lack of Textron brand recognition Bleak business outlook

    Advice to Management

    Learn to retain top tier talent Increase awareness of the parent company & subsidiaries Change attitude from "Oh well, that's Textron for ya!" to "Let's improve / change XYZ..." Challenge employees in a more aggressive manner

    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 Management

    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.
