Company Culture

It's every person for themselves -- must watch your back.

Support from management

Their too worried about their own jobs to give support to their staff.

Teamwork

Some departments work as a team well, but not most.

Freedom to work independently

To some extent

Internal Communication

doesn't flow down from the top well at all.

Gender Equality

Believe it or not, it actually leans more towards female gender in Tax, Finance & HR.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They actually have had a Leadership Development Program in place the last several years recruiting top college graduates and slowly pushing out older employees by forced early retirement or job elimination.

Career Development

If your not in the click you go nowhere.

Overall compensation for your work

average

Office / Work Environment

The offices, equipment and other environmental conditions were fine.

Environmental Friendliness

They had aggressive green programs in place.

Work-Life Balance

In most cases it's pretty good.

Company Image

I was in the early years, but not since the current CEO(Scott Donnelly) took over.

Job Security

Very little, they were have annual job cuts every year since 2008.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, it was very accessible for the handicapped.

Workplace Safety

Yes, pretty safe environment.

Challenging Work

The work was challenging and I was proud of it, but it was not appreciated.

Inclusive / Diverse

Depends who is coming up with the ideas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Starting looking at employees for what they contribute to the company and not judge them by the gender and age.

What I like about the company

I was able to greatly expand my knowledge skills in my field while contributing a great deal to the company.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of integrity and concern for employees

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.

Support from management

Might as well stamp a barcode on your forehead. Only the chosen few get the time of those in upper management. All others just need to suck it up and be thankful they are employed.

Career Development

Ok but you must play the political game to really further your path.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was fair with raises dwindling every year unless you had mastered the political side of the game.

Office / Work Environment

Stressna to say the least.

Company Image

Good reputation for quality aircraft

Job Security

Felt questionable at times but for the most part it was ok.

Workplace Safety

All equipment was provided to work safely and if you needed something it was never a problem.

Challenging Work

Tons of wor and not enough manpower to accomplish at times. Definitely challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

Plenty of diversity on the shop floor. Front office had diversity in the secretary staff but lacked in the upper positions

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of dead weight on the floor and those in the management positions who never engaged employees to better improve the morale

What I like about the company

Very solid financially.

What I dislike about the company

Dwindling benefits. Lack of management engaging employees at the location.
