Pros

Great company with a positive team mentality. Personal time is really flexible as long as work is complete.

Cons

With contractual work, the uncomfortable feeling always lingers as every contract comes to an end. No holiday bonuses exist. There is no room for growth and pay raises are very few and very far. Creative and innovative ideas are not welcome.

    I worked at L-3 Communications as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, got an oppportunity to help out at different parts of the company. Very open ended. 9/80 schedule was nice - three day weekends every other week.

    Cons

    Lack of company culture. Very corporate - most people didn't seem to really interact outside of their work

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

    Pros

    - 4/10 work schedule and Fridays off are the only reason to work here.

    Cons

    - Inept senior leadership ranks filled with spineless engineers and yes men/women.
    - Ineffective managers with University of Phoenix or online-degree credentials
    - Inbred environment with husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, cronies, and church colleagues getting preference for top jobs over talented up-and-comers
    - Group think and intellectual laziness
    - An exodus of talent underway, while the "deadwood" continues to fester
    - Stagnant products, little idea generation, and an unwillingness to invest in customer service
    - No accountability - people get promoted when they screw up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay yourself off next time. You don't deserve to be in the job you're in, making the salary you're making. Get a real degree, get some actual experience at another company, and learn to think for yourself.
