Experienced, excellent and amazing engineers. Questionable middle and upper management.

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Clifton, NJ

I have been working at Exelis full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA good place to learn, if you want to, from experienced engineers who have been working for 30+ years at ITT Exelis.

ConsA lot of management change, downsizing, future path not clear. Young and inexperienced folks in middle management are allowed to make uninformed decisions. This is could and have lead to major costumer(s) dissatisfactions and loss of future work. Naive perception of risk.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet experienced engineer make design decision. Please understand that MBAs are not qualified to make engineering decisions. Value quality and focus costumer's needs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
