    I have been working at Exelis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Highly skilled labor overall with brilliant engineers. Company has great benefits and provides a flexible working environment. Senior Management is extremely tolerant.

    Cons

    Old school defense mentality has kept employees out of the reality of the real world. Hard to get simple things accomplished due to this mindset. Senior Management is struggling as employees are not of the mindset to match the current economy and are stonewalling on every change they can. Hard to push through and accomplish anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great company offering great benefits to their employees. Take the time to look at your organization. Hold your managers accountable if they are not of your mindset. Organize and prioritize what you want to accomplish and push it out unified.

    Middle Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Fort Wayne, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Fort Wayne, IN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Exelis in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager did not ask any significant questions. The internal psychologist conducted the interview which I thought was strange. He read fro a canned list of questions. They no longer use this technique but instead try to get hiring managers in the work area as well as neghboring work groups to conduct interviews.
