    Pros

    Co-workers are highly skilled and dedicated. The work is rewarding in that it supports our armed forces. There are wide variety of opportunities within the company - logistics, manufacturing, engineering, etc.

    Cons

    Telecommuting is not allowed. This is a large corporation with associated bureaucracy and overhead costs. Collaboration between geographically separate divisions is restricted, which reduces effectiveness of pursuits.

    Pros

    Great people, friendly management and extensive training benefits.

    Cons

    Work with a geographically separated unit, so it can feel detached from L-3 at large from time to time. Haven't had many, if any opportunities to advance after having worked all the positions within my particular project.

    Pros

    Company treats people professionally and is world - class. You won't easily find a better employer.

    Cons

    L-3 has had to lay off a lot of people lately due to market conditions and the pains of growing too quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Do what the founders would do that are no longer there. Don't give in to MBAs and hedge funds.
