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
Technical Specialist (Former Employee), Merrimack NH – August 14, 2012
Pros: good teammanship
Cons: lot of uncontrolled back stabbing
I used various calibration equipment to align and adjust the many optical tables used for various testing and alignment. I looked forward to performing this exercise because of the many different problems that needed to be attended to.
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
