Software Engineer III (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – September 8, 2017
A typical day was to carry out independent technical work.
Since I have worked there 9 years, I have learned a lot there, tremendously enhanced my knowledge in object oriented analysis and design, and full life-cycle development ranging from requirements analysis, design, coding, test, and integration.
The management team was great to work with.
The workplace culture was great as well, including summer cook outs, service award meetings, and some lunch time social meetings.
The hardest part of the job for me was sometimes it may be difficult to communicate and coordinate with team when everybody had a strong opinion and deadline was approaching. The lead carried heavier responsibility when sometime went wrong.
The most enjoyable part of the job for me was occasional deep and interesting discussions with coworkers to exchange ideas and views on different topics, when not having tight deadlines,
The management team was great to work with.
When the project was not doing well, it adversely added pressure to make communication more difficult.
SEIT Lead (Former Employee) – Greenville, TX – July 19, 2018
At the L3 Technologies division in Greenville, TX, the purpose is clear - noble cause, do it for the troops. The long work hours and intensity pays off with the feeling of success. It is also a good place to have a long, fruitful career.
Customer Support Specialist I (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – July 17, 2018
I loved working for the company and they have wonderful benefits. I feel Management failed to move the Facility in a direction that would be an asset for the company. New Management felt we were too seasoned and not worth the time. Several good hard working people lost their jobs as a result.
L3 Technologies is a place that has high values. There seems to be longevity with a lot of people that work there. I enjoy working with my program teams and the programs they support. Unfortunately, I do not live close and the drive is becoming tiresome and expensive. I recommend L3 to anyone that likes to work in a great program environment.
Site Manager/Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 15, 2018
Overall L3 is a good company to work for. HR is very helpful and seems to take care of employees issues in a timely manner. No issues with direct deposit, Management was strong but lacked interface and support from QA department.
A typical day would start by walking into your desk and opening your email to find a torrent of emails with emergency fires that needed to be put out. Management did little to help snuff them out and simply turned into a funnel to direct all the nonsense down to the employees. Managers did not hold umbrellas to help shield their underlings, but rather funnels to send it all right to the bottom.
You're expected to donate your soul to the cause no matter what the effort entails.
Good o'boy culture.
Severely lagging behind the tech industry when it comes to modern technologies.
Operates by the "It works, so why make any changes" mentality.
Extreme amounts of technical debt.
Has a large number of people connected into high level positions that are making technical decisions without any knowledge of the subjects.

AH-64D/E Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Rucker, AL – July 9, 2018
Lack of knowledge by most workers on proper procedures for maintaining the AH-64D/E Apache helicopter. Most hourly employees purposely work slow so they can be put on overtime to get paid more money. Having worked on Apache Helicopter in the Army for 30 years I have never seen a more disorganized and knowledgeable organization. Main reason they lost the contract at Fort Rucker
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 3, 2018
Good job, lousy advancement in some departments. Its an electrically driven company but they need some mechanicals to pull it all together. You can earn a good wage, typically only put in 40 hours and have decent benefits but check your aspirations for progression at the door.
I enjoyed my time with the company. I had many friends and a over all great experience. Management was always giving support and very understanding when it came to personal matters. The division in Dallas,tx was small and had all family atmosphere.
