    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    People seem to be able to move around.

    Cons

    Seems to be rudderless. With major acquisitions, reorganization the company seems to be overwhelmed.
    No work life balance.
    'Rising Stars' move around too much, so they never actually understand their jobs or businesses.
    People have to move geographically to rise, and the locations stink.
    Seem to have a fair bit of politics, optics more important than performance

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and figure out what they need to do to get through the current poor performance
