    I have been working at Textron Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good group of people. Takes care of their employees. Good salary. The work is interesting. They encourage employees to move within the different operating units within the company.

    Cons

    Advancement can be slow. Could use process improvement in engineering and program management. Recent emphasis was on winning programs at all costs and are now having execution problems.

    I worked at Textron Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Engineering teams work well across disciplines. Education assistance to return to school is offered; though for graduate school, yearly amount needs to be increased. Benefits are decent and priced reasonably.

    Cons

    Poorly organized with leadership. Name calling and belittling is common from several higher level leaders. Very little training and mentoring is given past New hire orientation, inhibiting growth and career potential. Fault and blame is places; fingers are pointed when bad news is delivered. Little appreciation given to the hard workers. Processes need to be revisited and improved; and must be standardized across the business unit. Lack of communication, though lots of meetings that do not have positive reasons or solutions to resolve issues.

    I have been working at Textron Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Flexible work times.

    Cons

    Management constantly changing. In seven years I have had 8 supervisors. Poor managers are just moved around. "Good old boy" and who's on the golf team runs deep. Training is nonexistent. Figure it out as you go along. Lay off and terminations are erratic. Very tense work environment. Lots of CYA and that's not my job.
