    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Exelis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed schedule - because management is too busy making nonsensical charts and "feeding the beast" to notice if you are at work or not.

    Cons

    Nobody notices if you are at work or not. Your friends (or you) may be let go at any time since they are trying to "save money" by getting rid of any employees left with the old pension plan.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your best asset. It's probably a good time to quit focusing on hiring your buddies into upper management and try to pay attention to your experienced personnel who interact with the customer. Otherwise, you're not long for this market...

    I have been working at Exelis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable salary with some flexibility in work schedule.

    Cons

    Cronyism with just a few just a few individuals trusted to make decisions. The Merit System?
    What Merit System?

    Advice to Management

    Learn to know all your employees well. Their strengths, weaknesses and capabilities. Don't just rely on the input from the few individuals that surround and try to impress you for their benefit. The principles of TQM still works in the service industry.
