Planner III
Planner III (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 14, 2016
great work life balance. Management and politics are the worst part. no advancement on merit what so ever. boys club for sure.
old school mentally with no change in site. it like working in a 1980's manufacturing plant. if they were commercial they would already be out of business.

Great learning experience
EMI/EMC Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GASeptember 14, 2016
The Atlanta Aviation facility of L-3 Communications hires very talented personnel. However, the turn-over rate is high due to product development and sales. Management can be vindictive if they don't feel that the work effort was done to their satisfaction. The current work process is "get it done fast, get it right later." Below management, the people are great to work with. The company benefits are very good.
Pros
Lots of family fun activities offered throughout the Atlanta area via the company, The company offer discounted rates to Georgia's theme parks.
Cons
Unless you have a "I have a job today attitude" it is not a place for long-term growth.

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

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
