Difficulties
Warehouse Specialist (Current Employee), Fort Bragg, NCAugust 20, 2015
Pros: Great hours, teamwork and independent work
Cons: Short breaks, not so good benefits, inconsistencies in instruction
My coworkers are great, but it can be difficult to get the job done accurately when the management is not always consistent in what and how exactly they want things to be handled. Often times, frustration builds up and that is always bad when it comes to an environment where teamwork is required.

L-3 communications
Antenna Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTAugust 20, 2015
Pros: good benefits, great experiences, competitive pay.
Cons: lack of interest in their employees, favoritism, lack of focus
L-3 communications is a great company to work for, but has some areas that need to be improved.

1. L-3 went through a rough patch and had to layoff about 25% of their employees. after the layoff they have been hiring more and more managers and directors increasing management by a lot. they should be focusing on hiring more employees in operations the people that actually make the company money

2. L-3 has some feeling of favoritism in some areas. making it hard for anyone else to get ahead and improve their skills..

3. L-3's managers some time show that they don't care about you. and don't fight for you or your needs.

A friendly work place. Nice and professional instructors, but unstable career as a contractor.
Yemeni - Sana'ani & Adeni Linguist/Instructor (Former Employee), Linthicum, MDAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Fair salary.
Cons: Short notice to leave the company due to government budget cut!!!
Even though it took me one hour to drive to work, but it was worth it. Coworkers were friendly and wonderful people. Management was outstanding and professional. The hardest part of the job I was not sure about my future as a contractor with the company. L-3 can get rid of a contractor in a second. The reason is due to government budget cut. Nothing was hard for me as a Yemeni instructor at LLC. I love what I do. Teaching is my favorite thing to do in life. I enjoyed the year and half that I spent with L-3 @ LLC, Linthicum Heights, MD.
