    I worked at Exelis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Excellent health, dental benefits
    - Decent salary

    Cons

    - Nearly complete lack of technical content in work.
    - Astounding amounts of time, effort and resources dedicated to the language used in documentation of hypothetical equipment.
    - Pressure to uphold the constant facade that everyone is busy and that overtime is necessary, while little to no actual work of any value took place.
    - A shocking willingness to deviate from initial contracts with the understanding that the customer would 'just deal with it'.
    - The only morsel of technical responsibility for my project resided with a lunatic of a senior engineer, who at one point engaged in a screaming match during a >40 person customer facing update and had to be escorted out of the room.

    Summary: A facade of challenging, time consuming and important work permeates this operation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
