Pros

Great group of people to work with below upper management. Semi relaxed atmosphere, not overly formal.

Cons

Management is disconnected, People who are leads should not be, Unsure as to how some people still have jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house, get people who know what their doing, stop slowing things down.

    I have been working at L-3 Communications full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very competitive wages, benefits, and perks working at L-3. The selection process ensures that we only get highly qualified people for technical jobs. Flexible schedules, time off and working with Military reservists and guardsman are second to none. While many companies have not been hiring or had layoffs, L-3 has continued to grow.

    Cons

    Supervisors and management are not qualified enough to be in their respective positions. People that don't have degrees (of any kind or discipline) have been removed from those positions and replaced with incompetent, over-bearing, egotistical, half-wits, that have neither the management, people skills, or common sense enough to effectively hold that position. The only thing they do have is a degree in (anything). Temps are treated like slave labor, and demoralized. The communication between employees is horrible, and is to blame for more than half the problems we have here. This used to be a "family" type atmosphere, but more and more people are thrown under the bus here on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting people who aren't qualified in positions of authority. A degree doesn't always mean that they're the ones for the job. Stop allowing the "good 'ol boy" system to perpetuate; more often than not the wrong person fills that job. Understand that you're employees will make mistakes, and not judge them so harshly.
