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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, decent health benefits, 401k and pension. Recently bought by Harris so could be a plus or Minus, time will tell.

    Cons

    Too much finger pointing, instead of fixing the real problems together.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greenbelt, MD
    Anonymous Employee in Greenbelt, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Exelis in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Pre-screening phone call (after speaking with representatives at a university career fair). After being told to look at a specific position, an on-site interview was scheduled for the following week.

    The on-site interview was really great. First, I met with one of the project leads who was looking to hire for the position and got an in-depth look at the project (though not so much what I would be doing). Then I met with the employee who I met at the career fair for a behavioral "interview" that was a very informal, relaxed discussion of my professional outlook and experience. Then I met with an HR rep. Very informal but got a good picture of the company.

    Interview Questions
