I have been working at L-3 Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Felt respected from day one despite starting in an entry-level position. Was progressively handed more challenging and interesting projects in just a few months. Flex hours and paid over time are great(especially for a salaried position).

Cons

Upward mobility seems limited. At the Waco site, software engineers seem to be second-class citizens. Their intranet promises 100% funding for continued education(masters degree, etc), but there is actually a cap per year.

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent employee resources. Not too much overkill on training. Good holidays.

    Cons

    Average pay, weird and anal about posting hours to various contracts in time sheets. Everything had to be done early with time estimation. Why not finish your work and record your actual time.

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

    Pros

    Resources are diverse, wide range of products, wide range of sites

    Cons

    Government contract work makes for some anxious times as everything restructures. Divisions are competitive for dollars even among other L-3 divisions. Work population is aging out and key skill sets are in danger of being lost. Mentoring programs and focus on long term goals is needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is KEY to success as well as face to face interaction with the down line. Understand the problems with the everyday work environment - what makes your employees productive/non productive.
