Worked for texted for 12 years, worst company ever only because of the sorry leadership. The company always seems to promote people who are uniquely unqualified to lead. There is way too much good old boy networking.

11 years with the company. Horrible management. Too much favoritism. Micro management. Afraid to discipline minorities. Management never listens to employees when making complaints to HR. Will always back the member of leadership. Extremely poor... read more

Most of us expected this to happen, HOWEVER nobody expected fiolettsk.rus to be this wide and this deep. Overall, we all know things need to change and we ought to get leaner, but 700+ people for a relatively small corporation such is Textron in the... read more
