    Pros

    Nice level of pay for the area. Good level of job security. Decent raise scale on the hourly side.

    Cons

    Very bad management. This place is filled with "good ole boys" and their freinds/ relatives. Union shop. Benefits are expensive. Pay does not cover the stress.

    Advice to Management

    Time for some house keeping from the top down. Don't hire everyones cousin.

    I have been working at L-3/IS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like the technical challenges and opportunities to design solutions to difficult problems that this job presents. The people I work with are a joy to work with. I like the city of Waco for its relaxed lifestyle. I like that the job offers varying responsibility as time passes.

    Cons

    The minimal pay raises for the last three years have soured my desire to remain here. The management has been in continuous turmoil as the company has sought to recover from the last regime's mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Management should develop and publicize a recovery plan that addresses near term and long term goals and strategies.

    I have been working at L-3/IS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You collect a paycheck. That is always good. Sometimes you can a lot of overtime that is paid at straight time for salary people, other times none. Employees get discounts on local services. If you get in with the Good Ol' Boy Club you are set for life. You'll have all your dreams unlocked, and you'll be showered with wheelbarrows full of cash. The insurance benefits are not too bad considering what is offered around this area from other employers.

    Cons

    The Good Ol' Boy Club is strong and getting stronger everyday. Nepotism is the key to your success. Don't count on big money or raises. This place is a 'step' job. There is not a linear curve up to the higher levels. Failing to jump ship or change departments every five years will cause you to stall out. The benefits used to be better, but they have changed with the times. There is big emphasis on schools. It seems in Texas you can be hired or fired based on what college you attended. A former manager liked to hire OSU grads. The next manager got rid of the OSU guys and brought in A&M College Station grads. Firing is a way of life, especially for hourly workers. Salary workers are treated like hourly workers too. Avoid this place if you can. A lot of the pensioners are clinging to this place and not letting go. Your path to promotion is choked by pension riders who can't draw the pension til a certain age.

    Advice to Management

    None. Until most of management has retired, no advice will be heeded or accepted. In fact, giving advice is one of the fastest ways to unemployment.
