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.

Not a bad place to work however the work environment is negative overall. Team moral seems to go down every year. It is also very hard to climb in the company. Even with years of experience the company will not promote you without going back to school to get your masters degree. Pay is also not as high as competing companies.

Textron Systems is a diverse aerospace and defense company with multiple locations across the US. The company produces innovative products that serve the US military, foreign governments and the aerospace industry. The work is challenging and rewarding.
Manufacturing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Wilmington, MA – 27 February 2017
Textron was a good place to work I was responsible for 30 people and all of them helped us meet schedule and build plan. I had a standard work day, i.e. meeting about floor issues with management team everyday, SQDIP (Safety, Quality, Delivery, Inventory and Productivity. This was discussed with Floor operators everyday. The most difficult part of the job came towards the end. We had to make schedule with all of us knowing we were losing our jobs. They all gave 100% to make sure it happened. We didn't get to many "I'm done attitudes". Everyone took pride in their work. The hardest part of the job was meeting schedule when people were out. We had to readjust personnel to continue to meet our objectives. The most enjoyable part was meeting the schedule and the people. our individuals would do as much as they could to help us meet schedule.
Basis Administrator (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – 21 February 2017
The Textron Basis role was a simple monitoring role. The more that I started to understand their systems and the developers who use them, the more knowledge and experiences I was attaining. Eventually if the company is not prepared and organized properly, it is difficult to get access to needed applications and learn fresher things.
Great opportunity for me to express my thinking
Very restricting when It comes to graduating to the next level.
I stayed busy and the work was good and usually challenging.

Production Associate (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – 13 February 2017
This is a horrible job, you will work very hard everyday from sunup to sundown plus overtime and then out of the blue you will get laid off or fired. This company does not care about individuals. There is no home life with this company and no room for advancement unless you are part of the clique. Managers display alot of favortism. Interns account for 75% of the work force and if you work here you will probably be relplaced by one within 2 years with the company. There is no structure, no procedures, no guidelines. Alot of backstabbing in this company.
Come in early, stay late, and no bonuses or promotions-mandatory overtime
Various Positions (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – 28 January 2017
I worked for this company for almost 16 years, and the only reason I left is because my division was adversely affected by the credit crisis in 2008. Upward mobility was excellent; as evidenced by the 8 positions with increasing responsibility that I had during my tenure. We worked hard, and played hard. This company felt more like family than a corporation.
