    Pros

    Plenty of work in a variety subjects. Decent work environment. Plenty of guidance on company policies and procedures.

    Cons

    Forces you to be a jack of all trades but a master of none. Reviewer feels those in corporate positions are interested solely in the bottom line and not the customer. Can be thankless.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate policy must mesh with contract obligations. To have one hand negotiate a contract, another mandate procedures after the fact without referencing the agreement and leaving middle mgmt and labor to make it work is a weak approach

    I have been working at L-3 Vertex (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Money is good, reliable hours, holidays off. Really it's just another "company" who took over the contract and left all existing personnel in their places.

    Cons

    They left the insurance under the union so that sucks, and they haven't hired any people to replace workers who left.

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

    Pros

    The mission of the company allows the employee to be proud of what is done for our military. Working at L-3 is very challenging and offers room for growth - personally and professionally. The people are great. I've never seen such dedication and commitment to success, not only financially but also in a job sincerely well done.

    Cons

    Top level management is very disappointing. People have been put in positions temporarily and have little regard for the very hard working individuals that keep the company moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Get over casting blame for past decisions and truly focus on utilizing the existing talent to drive beyond the challenges and revive success.

    Pros

    Good working conditions and a fun place to work as long as you do your job in a professional way

    Cons

    Some lower management folks can be a pain but they usually do not last. There is a ;good 'ole boy' attitude at nearly all sites BUT, Just remember, There are doers and there are climbers. doers prevail, climbers fail because upper management folks] will see through this in time .

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for keeping good people with a job

    Benefits and vacation was great. Enjoyed providing the services for the customers, and satisfaction of a task completed.

    Provide opportunities for all staff to take lead positions on tasks, as qualified.
