So much potential, but so little respect for their employees

Pros

* Great benefits
* Pay is very competitive
* Some of the most dedicated employees in the aviation industry

Cons

* "Be thankful you have a job" is a favorite quote of management and staff.
* If you want an opportunity to advance, you will need to leave and then come back.
* The Good Ol' Boy network is very much alive and well at L-3 in Greenville, regardless of any
  previous experience you may have, they refuse to utilize it. Instead, they insure that their "chosen
  few" be afforded all the jobs that get them "on-the-spot awards" and everyone else is given the dirty
  work.
* Will pressure employees into working overtime.

Advice to Management

* Listen to your people. . . They may actually know what they are talking about!
* Stop basing your schedule on your employees working 6 or 7 days a week, we have families just
  like you do!

    Pros

    The benefits are good. When I began working there years ago the benefits were better (eg. Tuition reimbursement, sick leave, insurance); however, over the years with the shrinking defense budget many of those benefits have been lessened or taken away.

    Cons

    The company is so dependent on the defense budget that it has seen a large decline in business over the past few years causing numerous RIFs. However, it seems that the layers of middle management have increased causing low morale with independent contributors. The company has a lot of challenges ahead and I'm not so confident that they will weather the storm and come out stronger on the other side. They are definitely having a difficult time.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the amount of bureaucracy that is being created with all of the management levels and how that is viewed during times of business downturns.

  2. L-4 cares about execs cushy jobs, not about the work, product, or employees

    Pros

    They do have some cool contracts, and nifty clients.

    Cons

    The managers are not really qualified, most got their jobs through attrition and being 'last man standing'.
