Continuous Improvement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake CityAugust 25, 2016
Typical day changed based on President's directive. Executive leadership is non-cooperative when dealing with each other so every organization is silo-ed. Business struggles to move forward, they only succeed because they have a monopoly on the product, which is quickly changing. Co-workers were great.
Pros
Gym on site, great compensation
Cons
No job security

L3-Force X Nashville is a hostile place to work
Sales (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNAugust 21, 2016
Poor communication, Poorly managed, Large staff turnover, Retaliates against employees who express valid concerns, Management staff that do not have college degrees and do not treat employees with dignity or respect, Discrimination against people that have not served in the military. Mostly under 40 people work at this location, only concerned with earning a profit at the expense of their employees. You do not want to work at the Nashville location.
Pros
Free parking
Cons
Hostililty, Poorly Managed, Treats employees like garbage

No reliable employment
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAAugust 17, 2016
I loved working for this company. The benefits could have been better but not bad. Great retirement plan and great guys to work with and around. The only thing is, and this is with any government contractor, is that you have no idea whether your gonna have a job from week to week.
Pros
Great environment to work around (Military)
Cons
Impossible to tell whether your gonna have a job from week to week

Unethical Senior Execs and Finance Department
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Sarasota, FLAugust 14, 2016
L-3 Aviation Recorders in Sarasota, Florida has the most Ethics complaints filed by employees of ALL of the Divisions.

In one year, the Controller had 4 Ethics complaints regarding fraud, coercing employees to lie to the external auditors, backdating wire transfers, inaccurate payroll, false financials, etc.

The CFO, VP Finance and the BOD in NYC are all aware of this and look the other way! Are the financials inflated?

Where is the SEC? Where are the external auditors PWC?

The SVP of Ethics in NYC and local Ethics Officer in Sarasota are all involved in disregarding and mismanaging the complaints. One day, they will be caught as L-3 is an SEC regulated public company that IS required to be in compliance with all the rules and regulations of every other company in the USA.

If you want to end up in jail, apply for a position in the Finance Department in Sarasota, Florida or work with the SVP of Ethics in NYC!
Pros
NONE- 100% Turnover
Cons

Site turned out to be a great environment. Project manager and human resources don't seem to care about the contract took months to fill 2 vacancies never filled the remaining spots which eventually led to the contract being lost.
