Its what YOU make of it
Aircraft Mechanic/Avionics (Former Employee), Corpus ChristiJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: hours
Cons: counterparts, because you govt contract
(Military environment) so if you're looking for a quiet cubicle life, Stay away. Rapid pace environment. A lot of redundant, overlapping, and dated military doctrine which makes it a little difficult with Quality Control but its a learning process. Depending on which hangar you get plugged into, It seems to be a clash of old school vs new school. Meaning some management wants the job done properly and some wants the job done yesterday. There is room for advancement, but it depends on your desire. I've seen people get promoted to management and have done right by it. There are the select few that ruin it for everyone but what job doesn't. Advice, Learn doctrine, and always apply for the next step. Don"t allow how long you've been there to determine your desire to move forward.

Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee), Aircraft Maintenance SupervisorJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: good pay
Cons: no job security, bad environment
Maintenance supervisor for 3+ years. Raises were pathetic. Treated like garbage by upper management. Hourly employees were treated like royalty while supervision was held accountable for the workforce failures. I would not recommend this employer to anyone!

L-3 making you feel like family, then letting you know after contract award... you are NOT
Software Engineer (Current Employee), Vandenberg AFB, CAJanuary 9, 2015
Pros: vafb was a great work environment, wonderful people - smart
Cons: getting screwed by l-3 when times got tough, a company only after their bottom line
As of January 1, 2015 L-3 has decided not to provide any severance for those employees that are about to be laid off on VAFB. Only for employees and not the higher ups mind you. What a big pile of dog poo. Many people have come from around the country to work here, most using their own money to do so, to provide excellent service on this contract. They let us know that they could care less about that, they are looking at their bottom line and don't care about those of us who came here, worked tirelessly, some of us over a decade here. We the workers got a 100% award fee for OUR WORK, OUR PROFESSIONALISM this past year, employees will see maybe $250 increase for that... and no severance to say - Job well done guys/gals! I thought L-3 was different, they always acted like we were a family, guess not

As a Stock Clerk, my day begins by doing a inventory count on parts in the stock room and just picking kits and orders all day and pack shipments in the end of the day.My co-workers are great to work with. They help you and and work great as a team. Management looks at us like second rate citizens.
