I worked at L-3 Communications full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

While at L-3, I earned a decent salary.

Cons

Despite having exceeded every objective, I was laid of with less than two weeks notice. Considering the company had invested thousands of dollars in my clearances, this was extremely short-sighted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This company no longer values employees. They did at one time. You need to stop hiring Generals to manage a people-based business. They lead to an emphasis on strategy over culture.

    I worked at L-3 Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay was good dispite the managerial issues.

    Cons

    Not a good work environment. During my time with L-3, I was constantly micromanaged and bullied. Each time I requested to use earned time off due to health reasons, I was interrogated. I had to report to my supervisor when I arrived at work, when I left for lunch, when I arrived from lunch, and when I left for home. One day I was off site and needed to purchase some CD's for the project. I didn't report it to my supervisor and was serious chastised when he found out. I could go on, but won't.
