    Pros

    The people here are professional, well-educated and a pleasure to work with. A company with excellent values

    Old school mentality has a lot of positive tried and true values but can also lead to being hesitant to adopt new innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Management should embrace innovation, new technologies and grow beyond their "go to" customer base. Take chances outside your comfort zone.

    Work is interesting, and you can do anything you want to set your mind to.

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

    Pros

    Cultivation of some peer relationships

    Cons

    No support from management. No vacation at start unless you pay for it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to positions that are constantly revolving and acknowledge people often leave managers and not companies. Listen to people who have actual real world experience, education and knowledge of managing MULTIPLE contracts the right way. Was suggested I not challenge years of managing a contract incorrectly because "that's the way it's always been done". Nothing I suggested or brought to attention of management was supported or acknowledged, however was later "discovered" as a deficiency or something that should not be done. If your're a yes person, agree with rewarding bad behavior, desire to be a part of a clique or else...this is the place for you.
