Company Culture

Animosity between brands (Cessna, Beechcraft)

Support from management

Only because zero stars isn’t an option. Management is great about talking a good game, however their actions are quite the contrary.

Teamwork

Very little teamwork between salaries and bargaining unit employees

Freedom to work independently

There the right way, the wrong way, and the textron way. And the textron way is to be followed to the letter, and never improved upon.

Internal Communication

The only things that are effectively communicated are the new hoops you need to jump through to do your job.

Gender Equality

Textron disregards men’s and women’s input equally.

Attitude towards older colleagues

As far as I can tell they treat older folks equally to younger folks

Career Development

If your lucky, there is room for advancement. For most, this will not be an option.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is great.

Office / Work Environment

If you like being a mushroom, this is the place for you. You’ll be kept in the dark and fed all the refuse you can handle.

Environmental Friendliness

A solid effort is made to contain and treat hazardous materials.

Work-Life Balance

Rather than hire enough people to meet deadlines, they mandatory as much overtime as the union contract allows.

Company Image

I think the image of textron is like an Instagram photo. What most people see is filtered.

Job Security

It’s aircraft. As secure as any

Handicapped Accessibility

Would not be a friendly place to a physically handicapped person, but what manufacturing facility is?

Workplace Safety

Sometimes the extent of safety equipment hinders safety

Challenging Work

In production, you will perform one task until you can do it in your sleep. But don’t sleep at work, you’ll get fired for that.

Inclusive / Diverse

They are good about hiring from a diverse labor pool.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Actually listen to employees instead of paying them lip service. Instead of focusing on documenting the contents of toolboxes, get people the tools they need. Take action on quality ideas that are submitted. I could write a novel on how there’s room for improvement in my work scope alone.

What I like about the company

With less than 3 years current seniority, very little.

What I dislike about the company

Again, could write a novel. This company does not care what your skill set is after employment. No matter how impressive your resume is, you will be doing what they need you to do regardless of experience. They will sell you a job in the interview, but don’t count on that being your actual job. Just imagine what your first job was in your respective field, and subtract everything good about it. That’s what you’ll do all day, every day.

Company Culture

My SOR was always interested in my advancement and provided the training and placed me in a position to receive mentorship

Job Security

Job security was/is dependent on sequential contract release. Unfortunately, the ASV contract was winding down and the Navy had not let the SSC contract. So there was a ROF, fortunately I found a new position prior to being laid off

Suggestions for improvement

  • From what I know of the Company, there is no improvement that can be made.

What I like about the company

During my tenure at Textron Marine and Land, I liked everything about the organization. This is one of the few Companies that I would go back to.
