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

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.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Exelis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have hired a few good managers recently.

    Cons

    Former management and old managers that are still there have been unable to create and enforce the changes necessary to make this a good company. Morale is toxic, pay is low and the company lacks the ability to create any positive momentum for improving processes or results. Quality of products produced and service to the customers suffer as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the old managers and start fresh. Too many long term employees have settled into a routine of doing as little as possible and making life difficult for those who want to succeed.

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

    Pros

    Many smart people, some who have been there a long time.
    Good technology and some very strong programs
    Relatively few stovepipes although they're being rebuilt
    Large number of up-and-coming talented professionals.

    Cons

    Company is not adapting to the change in the defense industry well. It looks more reactive than proactive or strategic
    Management sends high level strategic messaging to employees, but followthrough is desperately missing. Individual contributors are asking "what should I be doing?" Clear direction is missing.
    In general, employees do not know where they stand, and many are on pins and needles
    The watchwords "I am committed to your success" has gone out of style. Very sad. A lot of disspirited personnel walking the halls.
    Culture appears to be in freefall.

    Advice to Management

    Even in hard times, a company can have a sense of mission. Right now much of your workforce is confused, dissatisfied,and even resentful. There's no better time to re-establish the team's sense of mission than now. That means engagement, transparency and clear direction about what comes next, and what each member of the team can do.
