    I have been working at Textron Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The flexible time is really nice (Core hours are 10 to 3 Monday thru Thursday), Nice 2 person offices, Decent pay: (Close to the Average), Fun and challenging projects.

    Cons

    Generally, cannot work from home (sometimes with Managers permission).
    While pay is average, for most employees, it is low for the higher performers.
    Due to the nature of our work, there may be long stretches of "bug fixing" which can reduce the morale.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to recognize and keep the higher performers.
