Pros

The money is okay when compared to other contractors and it can be pretty laid back if you work hard and do things right the first time. You'll probably learn a lot about your job and you'll have the opportunity to advance if you apply yourself and build a good reputation.

Cons

Not everybody gets along and you need to mind what you say and to where you say it. Some people out here will smile while stabbing you in the back so watch out. L-3 could do more to rid themselves of these types, but they're so short staffed it's impossible for them to cut away the deadbeats now.

Advice to Management

Don't offer hollow promises to your employees like more frequent vacations. That just pisses people off. So make sure you have enough contractors to enforce such a policy. Word spreads fast in the contracting community, and soon you'll have nothing but a bunch of unqualified losers representing your company. Treat your people well, and find ways to reward those who make an effort to go above and beyond what's expected.

    Cons

    Overbearing and micro managing managers Seems like management makes up the rules as they go Employees are replaceable Management regulates trivial issues like what kind of music is played at work Management fosters an unhealthy work environment

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with interpersonal skills. They are not in the military anymore.
