    I have been working at L-3 Avionics

    Pros

    Technology is definitely leading edge in its field of the development and provision of acoustic systems and solutions in local and global Naval and Maritime domains with a particular emphasis in the areas of Through-water Communications, Tracking & Evaluation Ranges and Geospatial Support Systems.

    Employees are very committed to their work. There is a very wide range of disciplines supporting the products from mathematicians to electronic assemblers.

    Coffee and location (middle of Fremantle) is great.

    Cons

    Management still need some maturity.
    Business Processes still under development and at times more emphases placed on the letter instead of the sprite of the procedure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A few minutes spent being proactive would save hours having to act reactively.

    Fairness is more important than correctness or verbatim compliance to procedures.

    I have been working at L-3 Avionics

    Pros

    I've been a working professional for 26yrs at 6 different organizations and L-3 Avionics is BY FAR The Best. GREAT people - caring, respectful (I've been here 8yrs & have never heard anyone raise their voice). Cool extras- like your B-day off with pay, massage chairs, every other Friday off YEAR-ROUND! Management truly values the people - 'walks the walk' and 'talks the talk.' Probably why no one ever quits without a reason they can't control.

    Cons

    Office areas are dated; a couple of negative people need to be dealt with; we need another large meeting room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for not taking away the costly employee perks. Keep doing what your doing to help us become successful in a difficult economy.
