    I have been working at L-3 Vertex

    Pros

    The salary paid at L-3 is above average for the local area. Job security is high due to unionization. Most of the people employed by L-3 are retired military and are highly professional. Employees are rarely requried to work overtime. It is nice to work in military environment with out having to work the extra hours or deal with the additional life style restrictions that come with serving actively in the military.

    Cons

    Union structure discourages excellence. Promotions are based on minimum qualifications and senority. Opportunites for advancement are few, and require significant senority. Job is very monotenous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time and money promoting a team culture in the company. Seek ways to recognize exceptional performance. Encourage creativity and critical thinking among employees.

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

    Pros

    Good money. Good benefits. challenging work environment. As much work as you want.

    Cons

    very stove piped management. Heavy good old boy network. Minimums are ok if you are one of the good old boys. lack of holding pilots accountable for poor or sloppy work. difficult to find out about other opportunities at L-3 as once they have you in a program, you are "stuck" unless you are one of the boys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out in the field.....learn the mission first hand and show some leadership instead of just plugging holes. Set the tone that minimums are not acceptable as the standard.
