    I worked at Textron for more than a year

    Pros

    People are great, environment is generally pretty relaxed, work gets done, and everyone seems to care about helping the company achieve success. Since Textron has a variety of Business Units, your ability to rotate through different industries or roles is pretty good. Depending on which Business Unit you work at, things may vary. I was with Greenlee Textron (known as Textron Tool & Test internally) in the 2014/2015 timeframe.

    Cons

    HR is normally excellent but I witnessed a few major flops where they "forgot" about people or dropped the ball on specific issues. The company also seems to have over-hired and later had to "right size" and fire a bunch of people. This manifested in several veteran employees, a handful of new employees, and some shop floor personnel being let go across the enterprise. I know this happens, but it felt a little fishy to me. One thing that made me particularly upset is that they rejected me from their Engineer Development and Leadership Development programs based on my degree. Being rejected is fine: their programs, their choice. Claiming that my degree is insufficient because it's not "Mechanical Engineering" or "Electrical Engineering" is not. I felt that was extremely short-sighted and disrespectful to the body of individuals studying Manufacturing in academia. (I was working on my BS Manufacturing Engineering Technology at the time.)

    Former Intern - Engineering Intern in Augusta, GA

    I worked at Textron for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a smaller company in Augusta, GA (EZ-GO), and it was very good for learning experience, and because of the size of the company, it was more of a family type feel. Everyone was helpful to me, no matter how small the task was. This was my first internship, so it was very eye opening, and over all a good experience.

    Cons

    I did not want to go back to working there because the management did not seem to have all their ducks in a row. Some people were managers that probably shouldn't have been, based on their experience. Education isn't everything when you don't know how your own product is designed, but you're in charge of a team thats making it. They aren't fans of new ideas , especially if they didn't come up with it. The internship was kind of a joke sometimes because personal feelings got in the way of engineering.

    Current Intern - Engineering Intern in Wilmington, MA

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Textron for less than a year

    Pros

    I was in the Wilmington, MA location. The work environment is laid back and people are easy to get along with. They pair you with a mentor as an intern which was helpful. You also get to work on actual projects. Having this experience has opened many doors for me within Textron as well. Pay is decent for an intern and they give you a housing bonus of $1,500. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Low job security being a defense contractor. I wasn't offered a full-time job after the internship due to lack of upcoming work. They don't negotiate full-time intern or entry level salaries. Large turnover lately has led to some gaps in leadership.
