    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.
