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

    Pros

    The ITT Exelis community is close knit. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. There is no real sense of fierce competition, the workplace feels more like a family. It is a great place to learn and continuing education is not only funded but encouraged.

    Cons

    There are two big cons. One, is ITT Exelis exists in a very volatile defense market. There is a real fear of being laid off each quarter. Two, is that career development is really lacking.

    I have been working at Exelis for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Collegial environment. A lot of very smart and experienced people work here. Everyone here is expected to pull his/her weight. Company environment is, despite NYC culture, professional and collegial. Unlike many other defense companies, relatively little stovepiping ... we find others to be helpful across the board.

    Cons

    Work is generally very rewarding. However, career development is generally nonexistent. There are a few "high potentials" who are groomed to some degree, but even the Clifton location has lost some good talent that just left out of frustration. Management is generally good though it depends very much on who your individual manager is. Most fall short out of ignorance rather than anything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen down. Coming up to the Exelis spinoff, this quality was decaying and needs to improve significantly.
