    Pros

    The job location at VAN NUYS, CA was close to home. HR told me and many other incoming employees that people have worked here for over 30 years.

    Cons

    Unethical management throughout the organization. Salary is typically 20% lower than similar positions at other aerospace companies in the Los Angeles area. Employees have received 'zero percent' raises recently. Massive layoffs in 2011 and rumor of additional layoffs for 2012. In general, most people at this location are very frustrated by unethical and unfair management. Expectation of excessive unpaid overtime for most salaried employees. Benefits are not exactly at par with similar aerospace companies in the region. Internal communications and work processes suffer greatly. Largely autocratic organizational structure. Exelis is going to great lengths to keep costs low for rumored buyout of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate openly with your employees. Don't expect employees to work excessive overtime without paying them. Employees need a quality work/life balance. Consider replacing the old-school, mostly autocratic managers. Embrace positive change.
