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

Pros

great start for this company, specially the Salt Lake division. small company with a nitch that really cashed in on ISR.

Cons

Up to now business development was picking up a phone, the lack of experience in development of opportunities is a big risk. Top heavy and nepotism. Something about a Utah culture that lacks innovation and critical thinking.

Advice to Management

What worked for the past 15 years, will not work for the next. Innovate and promote top talent.

    I worked at L-3 Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, Flexible Work Hours, Competitive Salaries

    Cons

    Lack of name recognition in industry
    Constant reorgs due to local President's retiring or moving on

    Advice to Management

    Put in a President of the company (at the subsidiary level) who wants to stay in position for 10+ years. This constant change made it very difficult for all managers / directors to know and understand company policies and procedures.

    I worked at L-3 Communications full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with at Linkabit were outstanding professionally and personaly.

    Cons

    Management is continually changing focus.
    Business persuits dwindled to one or two products resulting in massive layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Management should stop pushing so hard to the "Lean" dynamic.
    The company has lost it's heart. Good workers won't be loyal if it continues the way it is.
