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

    Pros

    Benefits, time off with flexible work schedule, Christmas holiday shutdown, compensation, friendly work environment, lots to do, opportunity to learn a lot and wear many hats.

    Cons

    Bad habits of not following the process consistently, not always a lot of oversight, corporate is very hands off so there is not always clear direction on how issues should be handled.

    Advice to Management

    Communication needs to improve.

    Pros

    Great cause to work for! Company has large goals and very qualified workers, very stable company and stocks and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Reviews are a joke, better salaries at competitive companies. Benefits have been getting worse as time goes on. A lot of work and management doesn’t pay overtime, expectations of casual overtime (free OT) is the expected

    Advice to Management

    Must adapt to new times, management should be qualified to lead personnel not based on personal connections

    Pros

    There is plenty to learn about and keep busy with here at L3. There is room to grow and learn throughout my career.

    Cons

    I haven’t seen much yet in the way of cons. That may change over the long term. I’m still under one year.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I worked at L3 Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was fairly good.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of services the company provides, the environment is very harsh to outsiders. There is little sharing of information and difficult to come in from the outside. The people who have been there over 10 years have a pension plan and walk around all day comparing how much longer they have to work before they can retire. Good ole boy club is very strong there. If you do not know people promotions will be almost non-existent. The business development department has not won a competitive bid in over 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Find another way to retain your talent. When your veteran workforce retires Greenville has nothing to keep personnel there for the long haul.

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule. Friendly people. Decent pay and schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    Too much red tape. Very slow to get product out the door. Old technology and no innovation. Competitors are light years ahead. Too many layoffs lately and job insecurity. Offices are very outdated like the 1970's.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training and give everyone a chance to grow. Update your outdated facilities.

    Pros

    Great company and great culture! There are many opportunities for career advancement within the corporation. There are always interesting and unique products being developed.

    I am excited about the new CEO and some of his plans for the future.

    Cons

    There is a lot of restructuring going on at the corporate level right now. It appears that it is distracting division leadership from being able to focus on the day to day operations.
