Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Exelis as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Overseas money is always great. A lot of opportunities.

Cons

Lack of true management and leadership. Values were only words on a poster. Good ole boys club. Good people were not valued for their work ethics. Integrity lacked within management. Employees were not motiviated to do well. Too many made up job titles.

Advice to Management

Believe in the values and ensure your leaders follow them. Mentor and coach the leaders that are there. Remove those that do not meet the standards.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Exelis as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good vacation package, benefits are decent,

    Cons

    Lower management sucks. Instead of showing appreciation and encouraging employees to think outside the box or try to improve the process they find fault and throw them under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Take a strong look at your management and leads. The negativity that comes from them creates a hostile work enviroment and DOES NOT PROMOTE A TEAM ATMOSPHERE.
