I have been working at L3 Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very professional people in engineering department. Good pay. The work is exciting and challenging. So if you are willing to learn on your own you can make a big difference.

Cons

Very inexperienced management, mostly promoted within before they gained sufficient experience. Periods of feast or famine. Professional training must be done on your own because the company invests very minimally in training. Until recently the division has been able to avoid the layoff/rehire cycle that government contractors are pretty much forced into. That has pretty much ended now.

Advice to Management

Master your trade before trying to manage it. Working on one or two successful programs is not sufficient. Decide what it is CSW does. Currently L-3 Communications CSW is a lot of seperate little "kingdoms" which often compete with each. Come up with a business plan and then communicate it too all employees. Here is how the company is going to make money.... Just like we flow down requirements, flow down the business plan.

    Pros

    Work is fairly stable, Time off is generous.

    Cons

    No room to grow, employees are disrespected, plocies change at the drop of a hat. They would like it more if the employees were robots. Unethical

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are professionals... not 6th graders. Stop showing as much favoritism.

    I have been working at L3 Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well documented quality policies and procedures

    Cons

    Rigid environment, very militaristic and unfriendly.
    Paranoid, micro-managing management.
    Out in the middle of nowhere.
    Yes, you get 3 paid weeks of vacation a year, but they make you use vacation if the roads are iced over and you can't make it to the office.
    No ability to work from home when it benefits you; however, you must rotate on call once a month and work from home when it benefits them.
    They low ball you on the salary coming in and do not give bonuses or raises to keep up with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the good old boys groups down in Greenville, TX
