I have been working at Exelis

Pros

Rapid growth. Work alongside a diverse group of very bright people. Free information sharing and collaboration. Plenty of scientific disciplines to gain exposure to. Somewhat uncompetitive pay but very solid benefits package. They will hold all-hands meetings to recognize your hard work.

Cons

Senior leadership overconfident in their expertise, thus making massive routine technical blunders. You will work stretches of overtime for months (perhaps indefinitely) compensating for their gaffes. You will live there and rarely see your family, but hey, free dinner!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you don't truly know how something works, get off your Ph.D. and leverage other talent that does.

    Pros

    ITT Exelis has some excellent benefits while working overseas. Insurance and Bonuses are a plus.

    Cons

    Working overseas in Afghanistan is a drawback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would wish that we were the Prime Contractor on LCIV/ TO5.
