I worked at Textron full-time

Pros

Good exposure to a diverse set of businesses - automotive, aviation, defense, commercial. Career growth potential better if able to move, since businesses are headquartered across the country and in Europe.

Cons

Most businesses are still operating at a minimum staffing level after the recession, meaning more work for the same pay.

    Former Intern - LDP Intern - Finance

    I worked at Textron as an intern

    Pros

    - Textron has placed a clear focus on acquiring and developing talent through internships and the LDP
    - Good exposure and (mostly) meaningful assignments
    - The intern event in Providence was a great chance to network with other interns, LDPs, and directors at the corporate level

    Cons

    - Company is kind of a dinosaur without much ambition or entrepreneurial spirit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rekindle the fire, get employees excited to work for Textron again, and better align employee incentives with the company's overall objectives and strategy
