I worked at Exelis full-time

Pros

Working in a satellite office near a client site was very relaxed and flexible. Generally a positive atmosphere in the smaller offices.

Cons

Very few opportunities for growth and job security was nonexistent since it depended entirely on successfully recompeting government contracts. Very stressful waiting on a contract award and funding every 2-3 years.

Advice to Management

Make more of an effort to include field offices in company events and development opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Individuals care about their work, team members socialize on a personal level. When a task is needed to get done it will , most often, be completed on time. End products are of high quality.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to move and grow, when available transitions are hard to make. Benefits were much better in the past. Limited resources to execute on all activities requires prioritization and limits both personal and company growth.

    Advice to Management

    One size fits all is not always the best approach. While repeatability is important, the current economic environment, and more importantly, our customers are seeking adaptability. Some of our systems are antiquated and need to be replaced so we can remove redundancies while improving on both the quality and speed of getting our products to the customer.

    Pros

    * Decent Pay
    * Good Benefits
    * Good Coworkers Overall, From Supervision Down

    Cons

    * The Buddy System Is Sickening At Exelis. If You Can Kiss Butt & Tell Lies With A Straight Face,
       Your In....
    * 0% Communication
    * Upper Management Points The Finger Of Blame At Everyone But Them.

    Advice to Management

    You Put All Eggs In 1 Basket, Now Your Paying The Price. The Roanoke Plant Would Be Better Served, If Raytheon Or BAE Would Buy Them.
    Until Sweeping Changes Are Made In Upper Management, This Company Will Not Survive. Thats Sad Considering, They Have Been here 55 Years.
