I worked at Exelis full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The products are leading edge and world class.
The people make the company.
Most of the emplyees strive to always do the right thing.

Cons

Recent restructuring has left the work force longing for the way things used to be.
New product development not as strong as it used to be.
Demand for legacy products dropping at the same time the business development team is shrinking.

Strenthen the sales team and build the PMO.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Exelis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Non-managers are some of the best and most forward thinking I have ever met
    Individual contributors continue to find ways to succeed despite management obstructions

    Cons

    Management replaces innovative thinking with process at all turns, takes no risks, fails to effectively communicate.
    A recent re-org changed the lower levels of the organization, but kept many roadblocks to growth at the senior management levels.
    Benefits have decreased and pay is well behind competition

    Advice to Management

    Please leave and bring in new people rather than promoting from within (only way to move beyond our legacy products)

    Pros

    Let me think about the pros" none

    Cons

    This company is going down hill very quickly, they have lost a lot of good hard workers, why because of top management greed. but this loss not only is going to hurt employees is going to cripple the company. I called the 2012 no talented EXIT-LESS Company no where to go but DOWN.

    Advice to Management

    Get real treat the remaining employees good so some day you may not be at the unemployment office.
