Pros

Happy with progression of career and pay. Good people and usually interesting work. Company allows flexible work schedule for busy families.

Cons

Weak to OK management, work can be schedule driven. Some long work days that could be avoided with better planning. Vision and where the company is going is unclear. The company could more diverse and invest in new technology to advance products.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce mangement too many people telling other what needs to happen.

    Pros

    Many different opportunities and the ability to be in a rotation plan and find a job function that is best suited

    Cons

    Textron is a large corporation with many separate agendas. Which can make the operating business less competitive in the market place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency with changes and incentives

    I worked at Textron

    Pros

    Excellent place to learn and take on a significant amount of responsibility. Will work on interesting projects. People are very friendly and a joy to work with. Small team, can take on as much as you can handle.

    Cons

    Very low pay. Pay increases even for top performers are very limited. In my personal situation, the director of our site appealed to the VP of Finance for an increase and was turned down. Left the job solely because of pay... 30% increase at next job. If Textron acquires your company, expect a 4-5 year run before you're dumped. Horrible bureaucracy and excessive processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smart people are assets, compensate them.
