    I worked at Textron full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not much to do. It feels you are not doing anything in the whole day.

    Cons

    The most soulless, sexist, racist, discriminating workplace you can work for.

    Supervisor used dirty words about ladies, different races, etc.
    The work environment is polluted (literally), a lot of noise, a lot of office policy, too.
    If you want to decrease your life span by 25 years, this is the best place to work for.

    I quit after 3 months, and this is the best decision I made in my life. And after Textron, I knew where exactly I DO NOT WANT TO WORK FOR.

    This is a talent killer company. Big name, nothing inside!!!

    Advice to Management

    Please monitor lowe level managers.
