Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Mason, OH – April 3, 2017
Got laid off with around 50 people due to the fact they said they didn't make enough profit. Only made 25 million instead of 30. Then they turned around and reposted jobs of the people laid off. Reapplied and never even got a call.
Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee) – Kingsville Naval Air Station, TX – April 1, 2017
L-3 Communications treats their employees well. I got hired there after completing my enlistment in the US Navy. They put me in a work center where my skills as an Aviation Electronics Technician/Aviation Electrician are put to optimal use.
Senior Technical Writer/Trainer (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – March 30, 2017
A typical day at work was sitting in a cubicle. Management was OK. Pretty OK workplace culture. Hardest part of job was dealing with all the governmental regulations. Most enjoyable part was working with co-workers.
Was looking forward to retiring from this Company. Until our union went on strike.
Assembly Technician/Quality Inspection (Former Employee) – Sylmar, CA – March 28, 2017
Was a great place to work. I had an elite job. Manufacturing and Quality depended upon me. People's lives depended on me. It ended sadly after we went on strike. Even after I crossed the line. Everyone wanted my job. I was injured by another employee who then remained working there after I was forced out.
Medical, dental and vision
Short breaks, nepatism, Collective bargaining agreement.
Good place to work, but very slow with pay raises. Management typical for the industry competent but with a couple of jerks mixed in Hardest part of the job was dealing with multiple layers of inspection. Good coworkers.
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – China Lake, CA – March 21, 2017
I had this job years ago, and I don't want to make a unfair review based off limited recollection. The work wasn't to difficult, but could be monotonous. People seemed nice and the working environment wasn't bad.
It is a changing, challenging and exciting place to work

Service & Repair Operations Technician (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – March 15, 2017
Always loaded down with work, days went buy fast. Learned to be a line lead of anywhere between 3 & 12 other co-workers depending on the work load. Good company sometimes I wish I was still working of them. One co-worker was difficult to work with.
Structures Mechanic (Former Employee) – Waco,TX – March 15, 2017
When I worked at L3 in Waco,TX O always had plenty of work. The last year I was there the work slowly dried up and management didn't get any contracts in so I was eventually laid off. L3 in Crestview.FL was the best place I've ever worked. Plenty of work and great people and management. I works there 8 years but do to family problems I left L3 Crastview
Good experience, hard to move up, lots of management layers
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – March 13, 2017
Each division operates a little differently. There are some great divisions in L3 and there are some "ok" divisions in L3. I worked for an "ok" one. Management is all over the place with direction and employees were constantly confused on priorities, responsibilities and who they reported to. Company personnel changed greatly over a 5 year period with 4 major layoff, along with high level employees (directors, program managers, etc) routinely leaving for positions (sometimes better and sometimes lateral) at other companies. Engineers strived at the division I worked at while other professions suffered.
