Job security anyone?

Textron Layoffs 2017

It's hard to see things getting better or much better - are we going to have job reductions in corporate in Providence Rhode Island.


I was a 12 year employee with no discipline issues. I was thanked for my 12 years of loyal service, then told the company was moving in a different direction and that I no longer fit the culture. Classic BS line. The truth is that I had a month... —  read more 

Poor leadership

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.
