Explore our benefits


Future Savings
The Textron U.S. Savings Plan (TSP) helps employees reach their retirement goals. Eligible U.S. employees can save a percentage of pay through convenient payroll deductions while benefiting from tax advantages. Textron will make contributions to eligible employees’ plan accounts that "match" a portion of the amount contributed.
Annual Increases

Annual Salary Reviews occur each year aligning with employee performance. You may be eligible to participate in Bell’s merit review program to recognize our employees who go above and beyond. Merit increases are based on performance.


For employees covered by union bargaining agreement, please refer to your respective collective bargaining agreement for general wage increase information.

Education Assistance

All U.S. full-time employees can receive up to $8,000/year for undergraduate and $10,000/year for graduate courses each calendar year to support continued education for you to further grow your skillsets.


There are additional tuition offerings for certification programs, such as CPA, A&P and more. In some of our global locations, tuition assistance may be available.


Full Medical Coverage
U.S. employees choose from several Health Plans that provide comprehensive health and wellness coverage that includes preventative care at no cost, discounted prescription drugs, fertility and adoption assistance, counseling sessions, virtual doctor visits, and more.
U.S. Health Savings Account (HSA) 
By setting aside pre-taxed funds into your HSA, you can use the money for qualified medical, dental, and vision expenses. If you are on the High Deductible plan, Textron will contribute additional funds.
U.S. Flexible Spending Account (FSA) 
You have the option to enroll in either a medical or dependent care FSA. A medical FSA is a pre-tax account that you can use to pay for eligible medical, dental and vision care expenses that aren't covered by your health plan. You can utilize a dependent care pre-tax FDA to pay for day care, childcare, nursery school, preschool, summer day camps, and adult day care.
Parental Leave
U.S. employees are eligible for 6 weeks paid parental leave during the first 12 months of the birth or placement of the child. Employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement are not eligible for paid parental leave.
Benefits for Growing Families  
Fertility treatments, adoption assistance, and additional maternity services (including counseling sessions) are available to support U.S. employees.

U.S. Bell employees accrue vacation time monthly depending on their years of service and employee type. Employees in our global locations have local vacation policies.
Paid Time Off / Sick Time  
Bell employees have personal or sick leave available to them in addition to vacation. Paid time off for sick differs based on the applicable policy or bargaining agreement.
Holiday Shut Down 
At the end of December, many United States locations have an extended holiday shutdown from Christmas to New Years each year allowing employees to recharge. This practice varies by location of role and our end of year commitments.
Work Life Dedication  
We offer 9x80 and 4x10 alternate work schedules with every Friday or every other Friday off, giving you a minimum of 26 extra days off per year. Schedules are based on location and/or team.
