A very open culture, where communication is encouraged.
Senior Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – November 4, 2016
Textron stands out as a company where employees are free to communicate with each other as much as necessary to get the job done. The managers are very accessible and easy to talk too. Employee concerns are considered and addressed as much as possible. Everyone I worked with was knowledgeable, talented and focused on getting the job done.
The culture at Textron is extremely flexible at letting people contribute their skills on whatever program needs them the most. In the twenty years I've worked for the company I've had a chance to work on almost every airplane the company builds.
On the downside. With the decline in the business jet market, Textrons been unable to expand. To maintain it's profitability they've been forced to gradually lay off people. Despite this, they've maintained good communications with employees and severance packages are generous.
I hope the company can turn itself around and start growing again.
Open culture, talented and motivated people.
Few opportunities for advancement. Stressful enviroment due to a need to reduce costs.
