    I have been working at Exelis full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers. Lots of knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    As the title says: no focus, no long-term thinking, no investment. We laid people off earlier this year in response to a short-term slow down. These people could have been working on R&D projects during the lull in customer programs, but that would have required management to invest in the company. Now, we have business again, and we are short staffed.

    This isn't a surprise; management told us to expect a solid 2014. They don't even trust their own projections! However, they probably had bonuses tied to short-term metrics, therefore we had to dump people back in the springtime. Management can't get planning right over 6-12 months; there isn't even the slightest awareness of obvious staffing issues 5+ years out....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run the company for the benefit of all of us, not just yourselves. It is hard for us to believe in the company when we see poor, destructive decision-making that is clearly done only for your own benefit.
