    Past it's peak...once upon a time a great company with excellent potential, its future foiled by poor management

    I worked at Textron Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good salaries, great benefits, great people, excellent legacy product set. Outstanding training programs, six sigma culture, once resource and expertise rich.

    Cons

    Milked legacy products. Overlooked customer changing needs. Minimal new development or innovation. Missed its window of opportunity. Currently a high risk work environment in terms of retaining remaining jobs. Many lay-offs with more possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fortunately most of those responsibile for missing the mark are now gone. Remaining batch have a serious fight on their hands and may have to close-up shop (at least at Wilmington site) unless they figure out how to pull out of the current downward spiral.

    Pros

    Diverse product lines offer a variety of skill areas to explore and develop an individuals career. Mobile individuals are highly regarded.
    Good rewards and recognition program for self starters.
    Solid leadership development program just starting to catch on - and it will make a difference sooner rather than later.

    Cons

    Like most other defense contractors they are scrambling a bit to stay relevant with their customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
