Proposal Manager (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTMay 18, 2015
Pros: Great company culture, great pay, benefits are reasonable, great accomidations
Cons: I have had some issues with the benefits provider, but nothing that would turn me away from working at L3.
Great culture here at L3. I would highly recommend working here to anyone looking for employment. The company culture is friendly, cooperative, and easy going. It is very much a family company with lots of people having brothers or sisters working here, or even in some cases moms and dads. Great environment!

WOW!
Stock Clerk (Former Employee), TXMay 18, 2015
Pros: pay
Cons: everything bad you can think of
Do not waste time working there. Oh, it's 2015 now and I believe they lost their contract anyway,so you propably wont get to work there. The governement side of the base was literally getting fusterated with this company.Just awful management and sssssooooo much drama ! I cant even believe I lasted 2 yrs. Here is the thing, everyone who works there is so afraid of you taking thier job that they treat you like poo. Those employees have so much low self esteem and they take it out on others. L3 has put it in their head that there is no other job that will pay as well as they do and the employees believe it. They believe it so much that they treat others so bad because they feel like you will take their job. Very hostile environment.

great for the base bunch of insecure back stabbing people
General Clerk III FEMS Assistant (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXMay 15, 2015
Pros: you really dont work too hard at all
Cons: Back stabbers no official training
Production supervisors only concern with dress code and attendance. Coworkers are expected to train you. People are of every age and will tattle on you if you sneeze to loud. They want statements for everymove you make. The union that recently got in place is no help at all. Good luck and may god bless.

Configuration Management Analyst (Former Employee), Vandenberg AFB, CAMay 14, 2015
Pros: Excellent benefits package.
Cons: Government contracting is strongly affected by the federal budget.
L-3 Communications taught me the value of utilizing Configuration Management practices for all aspects of a project. Starting from a known baseline and progressing to the desired new state sets the stage for successful upgrades to any system.

Poor overall treatment by mangement, of the people who know how to do the work, rarely if ever, respond positively to suggestions.
Employee (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTMay 8, 2015
Pros: Salary
Cons: too much politics
Management is poor, very little room for advancement, too many egos. Spend a lot of time repairing someone else's mistakes, then wind up getting blamed for the original problem.

L-3 Communications stabs their employees in the back.
CM/DM Analyst, Logistics Analyst, Tech Writer (Former Employee), Colorado Springs COMay 5, 2015
Pros: Lower level managers, employees, flexibility
Cons: Severance packages, HR, Program Management
The managers at L-3 are very knowledgeable and easy to work for. Most of the employees are also very good. The problem is within HR and the Program Management Office. Every time L-3 would lose a contract or partnership, they would not pay the agreed upon severance to employees. They would simply hold a meeting and say we're not giving you a penny.

Excessive hours spent on vehicles and over use of time management
Heavy/Light Wheel Mechanic (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXApril 27, 2015
A typical day was busy working on vehicles and ordering parts or cleaning the shop after vehicles were done. I gained more knowledge about mechanics and the different ways to do certain things or fix certain problems. Supervisors did not want to accept responsibility for issues that went on in their shops. My co-workers were willing to any knowledge they had about mechanics and assist others if they needed help with work load. The hardest part was finishing vehicles and getting them pass company and government inspectors. The most enjoyable was going home after a days work and leaving whatever happen at work there.
