Administration (Former Employee), McLean, VA – July 3, 2012
Cons: everything at esa is a con -- in more ways than one!
Elbit Systems of America is the most horrible place I have ever worked in my entire career. The management -- CEO on down leads by fear and intimidation. The Business Unit Leader who runs and the Land & C4I unit is a sorry excuse for a human being and knows nothing about leadership. Any one considering a position with Elbit Systems of America should – more... really consider looking elsewhere for employment. They have had SIGNIFICANT layoffs over the past two years. – less
Medical Manufacturing Intern (Former Employee), Merrimack, NH – April 28, 2014
Pros: great people, reasonable hours and compensation, good learning experience
My time at Elbit Systems of America was some of the most fun I've had in my professional career.
My work was mainly in manufacturing. This included writing BOM's, organizing parts, cooperating with the parts inspection team, and building bloodwork sub-assemblies. Every day of work was a new challenge, and the thought of going in to work made me enjoy – more... the sound of my alarm clock every morning.
Throughout my employment at Elbit, there was constant emphasis on the ideals of communication and designing for manufacturing. These were concepts that I wasn't taught in my formal education's curriculum, and greatly helped me improve myself as an engineer.
The best part of Elbit Systems of America as a company is the people. My coworkers and superiors were kind and personable, and were always willing to answer any questions I had.
I thoroughly enjoyed my work with Elbit Systems of America, and am grateful for my time spent there. – less
Takes care of its workers, helps them develop new skills
Mechanical/Electrical Assembler (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – April 25, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits, nice facility, high quality product
Cons: management could be oblivious
This company gave me most of my manufacturing experience and skills. They put me through most of my certification classes and moved me around the facility, helping me learn new things. However, management and planning didn't always listen to the people on the floor.
Could have been better but also could have been worse
Machine Operator II (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FL – July 16, 2013
A typical workday started at 7am and ended at 4:30pm. I learned how to operate various machines and I learned how to assemble various products. Management was good overall and my co- workers were also good overall. The hardest part of the the job was working weeks at a time without a day off. I enjoyed mostly everything about my job. I was happy that – more... I had a full-time job. – less
Program Manager (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – May 22, 2013
Pros: 1/2 day fridays
Cons: time difference with parent company
Contracts with US Govt and most of the manufacturing was done at the parent company in Israel. Could be difficult to contact peers due to time difference. Getting the US Govt to accept the truth during communications was difficult because we were constantly late with deliveries.
Everyone around here has low morale because of the constant laying off, if your a bit talented they will boot you out or harass you until you quit in fear that you might take their jobs. No point in going to HR, the manager there is the same and the other HR workers are scared to death to even talk to you. Harassment & workplace bullying is tolerated – more... by all management & HR. Everyone is anti-social & keeps to themselves. Employees are content with doing the bare minimum as long they get the big bucks, over achievers do not exist here & if you're found- good luck! Company didn't tell us that if we didn't exercise our health insurance would go up. Only perk is every other Friday off. – less

QA (Former Employee), San Antonio – September 27, 2012
Pros: lame christmas party....
Cons: work environment, ppl, human resources personnel, management.
M7 was a great place to work until it was bought by Elbit. They came in here, laid off 40% of the employees and took all of our perks to include our onsite diner, star performer awards and other incentives. They executive staff was replaced with other Elbit ppl and they have no clue what we do here since its different from other Elbit locations, the – more... moral is so low that no one wants to participate in anything anymore. In the short time we have been Elbit I have seen over 3 Director level personnel leave because of how unhappy they were. This was my place to retire from, but not now. – less
