No opinion of CEO

Pros

Salaries are relatively high for this area.

Little to no collaboration. The disadvantages of a small company combined with the disadvantages of a big, beaurocratic company.

Advice to Management

I doubt there's any they'd listen to.

    I worked at Textron Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some terrific people, real talent. Opportunity to get noticed and demonstrate your initiative, if approached in the right manner.

    Cons

    Leadership vacuum at the top and in several of the Business Units. Leaders talk about value propositions, integrating more value onto the platforms, ensuring the highest customer satisfaction and being our own best customers. I heard too much conversation about ROI; Making our numbers; without guidance and future vision for how to get their.

    Advice to Management

    Hire senior leaders who understand the business and can chart a course for growth, without ignoring the numbers. The planning your are currently doing will not provide growth nor even sustainment.

    I have been working at Textron Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learn a lot about contract interaction

    Cons

    Wanting to learn more was promise many things when hired. Not one promise and now being let go. They say there is not enough work they can give me to take me on full time.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring keep promises that are offered. Especially when the person shows much interest to the company
