    I have been working at L-3 Stratis full-time

    Pros

    Fun, Worked with real professionals at my level

    Cons

    HORRIBLE management. They care about pocketing overheads and perks from corporate at management level instead of also taking care if employees. UNDERPAID for job skills while management makes a huge profit and kickbacks for YOUR performance. They care about contracts.. not employees. Managers walk around like they have nothing better to do than to nitpick all the time when they don't even know the job.... Employees get horrible support, broken equipment that doesn't get repaired to work with while the managers rake in profit and don't care. UNDERPAID... OVERWORKED

    Advice to Management

    FIRE YOURSELVES! you should be ashamed

    I worked at L-3 Stratis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Gave me the opportunity to begin my career journey as I was a recent graduate. *Worked with a number of great people and team members. *Had the ability to telework on days of inclement weather or emergencies. *Reimbursement and bonuses were given for passing a number of approved certifications.

    Cons

    *Opportunities to move up and take on more responsibilities were slim. *The salary was very slim even with the fact the job location was in the expensive D.C, Northern Virginia area. *Management was not held to the same standards as employees.

    Advice to Management

    *Provide employees with more avenues to grow and prosper. *Employees want to feel appreciated for their hard work and dedication to their duties.
