    I worked at Exelis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My Management leads were beyond amazing and even all the way up to the Director level. I was always rewarded for a job well done. I was able to cross train and transfer departments, leading to knowledge growth. Group events were fun and morale boosting. Participated in community service.

    Cons

    That our main contract came to an end, it was truly difficult to part from such a great company. And, there are always interpersonal relationships that will be trying but, i can say that management really stepped in and re-mediated any issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the GREAT work!

    Interview

    I was contacted to do a phone interview where I was on a speaker in a conference room. Two Engineers, and two managers conducted the interview. I then came in for an onsite interview afterwards.

    After the onsite interview I was contacted and told that I did not get the job at the time but that I was would be considered for another position. I was presented with an offer for the new position and accepted.
