Pros

This is a company that really does its best to take care of its people. Even in the difficult times we are in now, layoffs are -really- a last resort . Most often the employee will be offered the chance to move to another area of the company that can leverage his/her skills. L3 is also a vast and diverse company. As well as having tangible asset product lines (i.e. communications gear, avionics, etc.) we also are a service provider to the defense industry at large. This means that large program cuts that affect other defense industry players like Boeing , Lockheed and Nortrhup do not affect L3 as much.

Cons

If your not directly working in a production oriented group and are in a service providing capability, you may find yourself "separated" from the company. That is, you may be working as a "sub" on some other provider's contract and that means your not in daily contact with "the mother ship". This is sometimes inconvenient.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what your doing. If anything, streamline the hiring process (division and company dependent) at some locations so as to make it easier to compete for talent.

    Pros

    If you desire to break into the defense/aerospace industry and lack an engineering or business background, L-3 is always looking for motivated, hard-working, employees whom require little oversight to accomplish their job.

    Cons

    L-3, like the rest of the industry, has little desire or incentive to build future company leaders. As a result, leadership opportunities within the company are awarded to individuals with government ties.

    Advice to Management

    If L-3 intends to play with the big boys like BAE Systems or Lockheed, then they need to look beyond just price to sell their services.

    Pros

    The company is growing and doing very well in the current economy. While L-3 is a very large corporation, many of the divisions still have a small company feel. The corporation invests in its research and development.

    Cons

    Salaries for low to mid level employees are not very competitive for southern California. The tuition reimbursement policy is not as beneficial as other companies in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the tuition reimbursement policy and invest more in good employees.
