      Mostly good experience

      Apr 30, 2021 - Textron Leadership Development Program - Finance in Fort Worth, TX

      Pros

      Reasonable pay, benefits, and growth opportunities. A pro/con depending on how you look at it for LDP is moving around 2-3 times in a little over 2 years.

      Cons

      Not a particularly progressive company in terms of flexible work options (during COVID, the business unit I was at mandated 100% back in office during a big national spike in cases, and only reeled it back when a senior leadership member got sick + company cases went up).

      Direct team and manager are excellent; leadership and decision making is harder to understand

      Pros

      My role is a good mix of my intellectual and practical strengths. My direct manager is also the strongest supervisor I’ve ever had. I have a very good relationship with them as we have trusting relationship and they are very skilled technically and supportive of the way I work.

      Cons

      Simple decisions take too long to implement. We’re overburdened by politics and bureaucracy. Managers should be able to decide and take appropriate action within their scope and responsibilities.

      The Power of A Position

      Mar 10, 2021 - Assembly in Augusta, GA

      Pros

      You will learn the importance of putting the right people in positions.

      Cons

      It's evident that certain people in upper management were hired as a favor. Plant Managers hire their relatives or a former interns who attended their alma mater. They pass the leadership baton around amongst friends to keep unbiased qualified people out. They will hire African Americans for mostly assembly or other positions associated with the floor. The diversity they claim to have is very much manipulated.
