    I have been working at Exelis as a contractor

    Pros

    Pay for Kuwait is about double of the same position in the US (60 hr work week though). Affordable travel since you are in the Mideast.

    Cons

    Promote from within policy means you could end up with managers who are better suited for other jobs. Remote sites living conditions are the same as a stationed soldier (not good) and no additional compensation vs. the non-remote employees (nice shared apartment and car in the city). There seems to be a sense that a revolving door is a better business strategy than retaining competent talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage. Read your own handbook and apply policy evenly.

    I worked at Exelis as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Overseas money is always great. A lot of opportunities.

    Cons

    Lack of true management and leadership. Values were only words on a poster. Good ole boys club. Good people were not valued for their work ethics. Integrity lacked within management. Employees were not motiviated to do well. Too many made up job titles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe in the values and ensure your leaders follow them. Mentor and coach the leaders that are there. Remove those that do not meet the standards.
