    I have been working at Selex Sistemi Integrati as a contractor

    Pros

    The company works on government contracts, which means stable work and income.
    Processes are based on military standards and are solid and systematic, although slow.
    Possibility to travel.

    Cons

    The company doesn't approve of under-financed projects, which leads to a constant battle for budget between program managers and the engineering department; engineering having to struggle for budget also means little to no possibility for improvements that aren't explicitly requested by customers, and employees who end up with no budget are often transferred to other teams. Customers, while few, are very powerful and demanding, and the sales department often signs disadvantageous contracts, reducing the available budget even further.

    I worked at Selex Sistemi Integrati

    Pros

    The company looked out for it's own. Compensation was well above normal and projects were interesting. Collaboration with the greater Finmeccanica group is possible and encouraged.

    The IT and adminstrative functions (like acct, HR, etc) were very efficient. I never had a major issue. And the small ones I did have were always handled effectively. One thing that had always impressed me, HR was never involved in the recruiting/interviewing process ( in my opinion, that is a good thing). HR gets involved to handle the admin of your job - benefits, medical, etc. But the people that get hired was decided by the people with whom you work.

    And finally, for me, my line manager was exeptional as was a PM I worked with reguarily. They listened and made things happen for my career development and the project. Likewise, they could be depended on to follow through with commitments They were always gentlemen.

    Cons

    Like many companies in this industry - budgets are being squeezed. Selex has difficulty closing deals and that means no work. A sense of vulnerability does permiate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address sales. Don't be afraid to sell the technology. Yes, commercial differentiators are better, but you always need to show that you are a technology company. And that is something to be proud of.

    I worked at Selex Sistemi Integrati

    Pros

    SELEX Sistemi Integrati is still involved in the development of interesting technologies and perhaps is a few of the companies left in Italy in which it is possible to do some R&D.

    Cons

    The overall management culture is not geared toward meritocracy, instead it is more like a mid-age feudal organization in which power is carried from father to son. In addition to this, there is an over regulated and rigid career path which seems to be designed to slow down the path for the most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Candid and meritocratic management needs to become a credo for senior management.
