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

    Pros

    Nice folks; no BS; very little politics; people make and keep long-term working relationships and there is more trust and loyalty between workers than in any other company I've worked. Oh yes. . .onsite gym! However, mileage *will* vary greatly between locations since LLL is comprised of acquired businesses.

    Cons

    In comparison to most companies, there is nearly zero opportunity for upward mobility (with some exceptions of course). The facilities are a wasteland and the office are horrid. But again, the people are great. The health insurance is expensive and doesn't do a lot, but that's not uncommon. The wellness programs are seem to be there just to exists. . .I don't know anyone who's super excited about them.

    Advice to Management

    Put some money (not even a lot) just some toward improving offices and working environment. It's difficult to concentrate while smelling hex chrome, MPK, and hearing hammering, grinding, and such all day.

    Government / Defense contract work isn't for everyone.

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

    Pros

    Current location where I work is filled with a lot of caring people that are dedicated to their jobs.

    Cons

    Dealing with division HQ is a nightmare. The policies/procedures rarely benefit my location and often make things much harder for us. Senior management seems to care very little about this site as we're very small. There is a serious lack of infrastructure and policy which makes it very difficult to determine the right course of action. Very much an attitude of "my way is the best way".


  7. "Great people and oppurtunity to learn."

    I worked at L3 Technologies (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    L-3 had good benefits, strong ethics, good workers, and fair pay. I worked hard doing complex and important tasks and was compensated accordingly.

    Cons

    The stress of the position never went away, but the same is true for my position across the industry.

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

    Pros

    Good salary. Great travel opportunities. Employees are transferred if a contract is not renewed instead of having to find a new job so job security is good.

    Cons

    Sometimes moves are too frequent. (once a year). Career path remains fairly static due to a cut in per-diem if you move into management.
