Current Contractor - Electronic Technician in Kuwait City (Kuwait)
Current Contractor - Electronic Technician in Kuwait City (Kuwait)
Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Exelis as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

The people you work with are great and management gets better every year.

Cons

Contract changes about every 5 years you have no idea if you will have a job or not. They demand the right to inspect your apartment. This is understandable for company housing but if you are out on your own they demand to be able to inspect your housing as well. There policy is that they should be allowed in your home to see how you live.

Advice to Management

Do not overstep into peoples lives who do not live in company housing.

    I have been working at Exelis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A stepping stone and a chance to get a few bucks put away

    Cons

    Very poor management. No regard to true values just talk talk. No promotions on experience or merit . Unskilled management its who you know or blow. Doing the right thing can lead to isolation unless your a yes man. They do not want you to know your job. first and foremost just show up. indirect labor runs over direct labor. Tools are not industry standard and wherever you go its what they can't do for you first. Personal service center is of zero help and often insulting. Rules apply to some and not others. Safety is often full of wrong information and apply rules unevenly or worse inforced by people who do not understand them, the reason they exist or can explain them in proper english. Will simple walk pass a real safety issue to enforce a on the spot made up one . Just picking and choosing what they want standard is not day to day. Turn over rate is a reflection of the waste demoralizing work environment and lack of real concern its every man or woman for himself.

    Advice to Management

    Being in charge is not a leader. A real leader will do so by example and not dictation. Promote based on skill , knowledge and experience. The beatings will stop when moral improves will not make a better work environment . Learn respect earn it own it and value it . more transparency and honesty will go a long way.
