Technical Services

Electronic Technician (Current Employee)
Kuwait City (Kuwait)

I have been working at Exelis as a contractor for more than 5 years

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

ConsContract 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 Senior ManagementDo not overstep into peoples lives who do not live in company housing.

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