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

    Pros

    Company is adapting in some areas in keeping its values. The company has recently adjusted compensation and employee health programs that are cheaper and a bit more clumsy than years past. All and All it has worked well for the company, but it has struggled to hold on to Key Personnel

    Cons

    Leadership is not very diverse in background and corporate thinking. The company is on the low side of compensation compared to its peers and does not offer much in mobility for its Engineers. It is a contract to contract type of existence.

    Interview Details

    Most of my hiring and interviewing was done electronically over e-mail and telephone as I was located across the country. The overall process was somewhat lengthy, but I received updates any time I contacted my recruiter.

    The interview was very standard and the questions were in-line with what I would expect.
