    Pros

    Growth Opportunity; Multiple locations and industries;

    Cons

    Focus on middle management training was lacking;

    Advice to Management

    I realize that the early career professionals are important to an organization. However, focus on the middle management and mid-career level employees is just as important to retain that group of employees.

    I have been working at Textron full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This seems to be a career opportunity that would be great. To fit in with such a well known company, that has a strong growth in the local employment field where Jobs are not easy to find.

    Cons

    This is not a question I can answer without actually working for this company. All I know about Textron is what I have researched and have been sent to my e-mail. I believe working in an R&D company is a cutting edge placement with the ability to learn and grow

    Advice to Management

    I could only answer this question on a personal interest of security for my financial future. If Textron is hiring I would honesty like to be considered for the R&D Engineer since I am mechanically inclined, and also think quick on my feet to fix an issue as soon as possible.
