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

Pros

L-3 really knows how to take care of their employees. I had a good experience working for them. benefits were great and the inter-company communication was good as well.

Cons

L-3 is a government contracting company, so as government spending goes so goes your job.

Advice to Management

Continue to keep clear open lines of communication to your employees, it helps them feel that they are a part of the company as a whole and that they are heard when they have concerns.

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

    Pros

    Decent cost for benefits such as medical. 401k available.

    Cons

    It was obvious after a time that Working in the Vertex susidiary was a step down from regular L3 employment. L3 left ineffective managers in place after winning an aircraft maintenance contract at Ft. Campbell KY. Employees were constantly submitted to frivolous rule and proceedure changes at the whim of government inspectors, L3 management, and the local management. Many changes without dissemination of the information to the front line employees. The result being that employees would be "caught breaking the rules" or just shown to be unaware of rules or proceedures. Access to technical information was highly restricted and technical trainining non existent, so that whenever changes to aircraft systems were put in place, employees were often ignorant concerning operation and troubleshooting.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management of companies like L-3 need to visit the trenches where the actual work is being done often. Show up unannounced. See what's going on without letting middle and lower level management get the opportunity to hide thier failures. Technical working employees need technical update training. Updates to proceedures and technical documentation need to be clearly disseminated to employees.

    Pros

    Co-workers were nice and easy going. Environment was professional. Office space was not great, but it was not too bad either.

    Cons

    Management could communicate more with employees or take employees suggestions seriously.
