    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Textron Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people but they are now a rare breed. Few left to make it worth being there. I would avoid this company if possible. You could be jobless soon after arriving!

    Cons

    Down size, down size, down size. Story of the company. 500+ employees two years ago. Now under 200 in Austin and shrinking. Yet another layoff! How many can it survive? It will not survive long. Current employees hold on for compensation upon lay-off. Management employees let go get great compensation and advanced notice.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and avoid further loss!
