    Advice to Management

    Work harder to find the young people you want to stay with the company, give them more responsibility, and pay them what they're worth sooner. Put more effort into having senior engineers mentor their juniors and eventual replacements, because I hear it can cause chaos when an experienced employee quits or retires.

    Experiment more aggressively with new technologies and tools. One of my projects used CVS for source control, which should be banned from professional programming by now.

    Hire some dedicated quality assurance and documentation people to design tests and write documentation so developers aren't doing all that stuff on top of writing code and debugging. Frankly, there should be fewer developers and more people supporting developers.

    Listen more closely to engineering objections before accepting vague requirements and try to think more beyond the current project.

    I have been working at L3 Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a great name on paper and the technology that is produced is great. They are reasonably flexible with schedules but it depends on supervisor.

    Cons

    Poor upward mobility (rarely internally promote)
    Non-competitive wages (I have worked here for 7 years and one paycheck barely covers rent)
    In engineering they are focusing on hiring more women to look good to the industry. This leaves qualified males with no options.

    Advice to Management

    Try actually investing in your employees. My manager doesn't even show up to his own teams performance reviews. He makes is supervisors do it. The only time I see him is when something goes really bad (so he can blame someone) or when something goes really right (so he can take credit). Managers at L3 are kingdom builders and look at other managers hiring one of their employees as pirating.
