I worked at L-3 Communications full-time (More than 5 years)
Co-workers were fun and working a government contract was a plus. Overtime was not constant so the schedule was fairly normal.
When overtime was available it was required. Company paid entirely too low by all aspects. Other government contractors doing the same work paid much more because they were union. This is the sole reason that a union was necessary to force the company to do what was right. Unbelieveable treatment of employees. Some companies strive to pay a fair wage and offer good benefits. Before the union our medical was company funded with high deductibles, we had no sick days and only the minimum of 2 weeks vacation. This is even more disheartening when considering that the base we supported was 45 minutes from the nearest town. If you chose to live there and not further away, how are you ever supposed to go to the doctor or dentist or take your children to one of those places. L3 is definitely out for number one, but that may be the way of most companies these days.
Advice to Management
Pay employees a competitive rate and a union would not be necessary. Focus on the work environment and employee satisfaction and it would have been easier to get fire employees that were not efficient. At that point it would have been possible to be competitve in winning new contracts.
