Smart people, prepare to work your butt off

I have been working at Exelis

ProsRapid 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Exelis


Pros: ITT Exelis Geospatial Systems (GS) makes extraordinary hardware for satellites… Cons: Wow,...where do I start? Lacks leadership and a moral compass, this has been exacerbated by the downturn in the economy and the looming federal budget cuts.… Advice to Senior Management: I am not sure if ITT Exelis Geospatial Systems can be saved. It would require a total replacement of the present "leadership" with real… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
