    I worked at Exelis full-time

    Pros

    Working in a satellite office near a client site was very relaxed and flexible. Generally a positive atmosphere in the smaller offices.

    Cons

    Very few opportunities for growth and job security was nonexistent since it depended entirely on successfully recompeting government contracts. Very stressful waiting on a contract award and funding every 2-3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an effort to include field offices in company events and development opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Direct management and co-workers are great to work with. I have gained useful experience. I have been allowed to explore different career paths and participate in programs that were challenging and enjoyable.

    Cons

    Over the past 18 months, this place has become unrecognizable. Morale is shot. Project work is now slave labor with upper management throwing out arbitrary dates without understanding project scope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking for jobs like the rest of us.
