    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.

    Interview Details

    Company fumbled my travel arrangements, I had to pay for the entire trip up front. Interview was good, interviewers raved about how much they were impressed with my background and how much they liked me, I never heard back from them again. I tried to get reimbursed for travel and received the run around for two months. They always have excuses about why I hadn't received the money and always placed blame on another department. They were terrible!
