Project Manager (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – 7 September 2017
Overall my experience in various positions at Textron was very positive. In the last year there was a lot of changeover at the top levels of management that caused unrest and change at the program and project levels. The team environment and competitive culture were things I worked very well with, however the unsettled org chart made for a tough last year.
Compensation and benefits
Upper management is not set and that flows downward
Business Analyst II (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – 22 August 2017
At Textron we like to force employees 50+ out so we can hire new college grads for a 1/3 the cost! Some would think fantastic business plan until you realize all the knowledge goes out the door with those employees. The motto is do more with less! So when people get laid off others just consume their work.
Great company to work for and never stop learning. 5-10% of managers don't care and are just there to get a check, the others are so helpful. Don't let the 5-10% scare you, every company has managers like this.
Logistics ManagerLogistics (Former Employee) – Augusta Georgia – 10 July 2017
Was lied on and fired for no reason so that my supervisor could bring into new Caucasian people and five me and the other African-American was doing more than one duty and only getting paid for one was treated very poorly management was poor but I was working on the MAU so I don't know if I can blame text Job but I blame them if I have it in May you run my department

Textron's priorities are to its shareholders vice its employees or customers. They routinely lay-off the senior personnel to pinch pennies leaving an inexperienced and non-productive staff. The burden of which falls on the few remaining experienced employees.
competitive pay with respect to college degrees attained
Productive and a great job for college students and more.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Wilmington, MA – 8 June 2017
I learned a lot from working at Textron. I gathered customer service experience from every day tasks. I learned a lot about a companies security and how crucial it can be to the success of a company. It kept my productive all the time, whether I was signing people in, answering phone calls, or doing the patrols of the facility, I was constantly doing something. I enjoyed the job and the pay was decent for a college student. The only hard part about the job was the shifts. Working in security for Textron was a 24 hour/365 days a year job. There would be weeks when I would work 1st, 2nd, and 3rd shift and it was a little challenging. Other than that I enjoyed my time at Textron.
Good place to learn foundation of supply chain operations
Business Development (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – 6 June 2017
Good place to learn how supply chain operations work, but Textron is not the best place to learn about innovation. They are good about moving people around between business units but management in the smaller business units is flawed.
Program Control Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Hunt Valley, MD – 31 May 2017
Busy, busy, busy.... everyday is a challenge. If you like challenges then this place is for you. Unfortunately I have other goals in my life I need to pursue. The Job here has been very rewarding so far. I could say Job security is a definite upside to this employment found here.
Textron Supply Chain was never boring. With a mixture of businesses around the world and in multiple industries, there was never a shortage of work or project that needed to be completed. I enjoyed the people, although seven years of continuous travel became tiring. I loved the job and wish that they had not disbanded the global team in the economic downturn.
