    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Benefits, Good Parking

    Cons

    Directors, VPs don't even know your name - not communicated to on any subject. I met my Director for the first time when I introduced myself to him in the cafeteria - after 3 years of being in his organization. Present Supervisors / Managers - are terrible - no people skills - miromanagers that do not even understand your job - but since there was no one else to promote to your supervisor they give to anyone ... really sad.

    Advice to Management

    Give the people doing the work a pat on the back or any kind of acknowledgement. Lowest moral I have ever seen.
