    I worked at Elbit Systems of America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    KMC has dedicated people working on interesting medical instruments. As a contract medical instrument company, KMC will put you to work on a variety of instruments, and probably a range of work.

    Cons

    The parent company, Elbit Systems of America, is a U.S. government military contractor that is owned by an Israeli international company, so the security arrangements are tight which keeps the environment strict.

    Great people. Not small but not too big that the employees are ignored. Room for advancement for those willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Relationship with parent company can be trying at times. "That's the way it's always been done" mentality on some issues.

    I have been working at Elbit Systems of America full-time

    Pros

    - Very friendly working environment - Not a small company, but small enough for good performers to stand out and advance - Wide array of products, from defense to commercial to some really interesting medical technologies - 9/80 work schedule is fabulous - Executive leadership team is very approachable and will listen if you have inputs

    Cons

    - Relationship with the foreign parent company can at times be quite difficult - You might wear many hats, though that could be as much a positive as it is a negative if you're interested in changing your career direction

  7. "Unique defense contractor"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Program Manager in Merrimack, NH

    I have been working at Elbit Systems of America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relatively small in the realm of US defense contractors, but backed by a large parent company which allows ESA to compete on larger contracts while remaining more flexible than some competitors.

    Cons

    Very limited investment in growing internal engineering capability - much of the work is passthrough of products and technologies from parent company. Organization is heavily "silo"d and competition between internal groups for business can be detrimental.
