I worked at L-3 Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits and compensation, and once you get your foot in, it opens the door to more opportunities.

Cons

Been at L3 for over 5 years, but decided to leave due to the bleak outlook in the defense industry. L3 had been on the uprise, but now the CS-West division is facing large phases of layoffs due to over-hiring and overall bad judgement calls from up-top. Hard to say

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

    Pros

    They allow a good work/life balance, if not taken advantage of. They are willing to work with their employees to allow vacations.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to be innovative where there are so many processes and procedures in place. They are hard to follow and often you spend more time trying to understand them than they provide benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of communicating information with employees across all business areas and disciplines to create a better informed work force.
