    I have been working at L3 Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Flex time schedule that has recently been enhanced
    - Good (though not industry-leading) pay
    - Great benefits
    - Good work/life balance for most groups, most of the time (exceptions exist). Due to nature of the work it's actually quite difficult to "take work home with you", so you get to leave it at work when you're done for the day/week
    - A good work culture; I have enjoyed working with the vast majority of my coworkers/supervisors

    Cons

    - Plenty of restrictions and rules at the facility and regarding what you can talk about outside of work due to clearance/security requirements. You get used to it but some groups/areas are very strict by necessity
    - As in almost every company of this size, some groups/managers are worse to work for than others
    - Raises, other than typical ~5% for promotions or yearly ~2.5% for performance reviews, seem pretty rare
    - Being a government subcontractor, you are essentially an hourly employee, even when salaried. You charge per hour to contracts and there's no such thing as finishing your work for the week and going home early (without flexing or using PTO). You live and die by your charge numbers.
    - When schedules get tight, be prepared to work plenty of overtime or even holidays. BUT - you do get paid straight time for OT (48+), even as a salaried employee

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, I think you're doing well. There have been a bunch of changes to upper management recently and the dust has yet to settle. I'd like to see more flexibility in location, i.e. working remotely, which as of right now is almost unheard of at my location (ISR - Greenville, TX)
