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.

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

    Pros

    Close to home, pay. Some good people in the trenches.

    Cons

    Management is 'good ol boys club'. Most in management are more concerned about what the archaic president wants rather than doing a good job. Corporate wants one thing, the president and former owner wants it HIS way only. HR is a joke. If you have dedication to whatever you do, have integrity and passion this place will destroy you.

    Advice to Management

    Get your knuckles off the floor and get with the times!!
