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.
Overhead support worker (Former Employee) – Virginia – June 21, 2018
Fairly normal company, but nothing spectacular. Management was spotty, with little clear guidance. They don't go out of their way to hamper or help employees. No assistance is given when they feel they no longer need you. Some great people in the trenches.
Senior Data Scientist/Team Lead (Former Employee) – Broomfield, CO – June 20, 2018

Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – St Petersburg Beach, FL – June 19, 2018
L3 does not pay well compared to its competitors. The Security and Detection division which I worked supported TSA operations at the airports. The work teams make or break this job. If you have a good crew of proactive and competent workers this can be a great job, but from my experience this was not the case.
Head Facility Security Officer/Security Mgr. /CSSO (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – June 18, 2018
I enjoyed working for L3 for over 20 yrs. They treated me the upmost respect and benefits was great, company events such as picnics for families, Christmas parties for employees and other events. I would recommend L3 a good company to work for.
Distribution Manager 5 (Current Employee) – Greenville, TX – June 17, 2018
L3 Technologies is a serious competitor in DOD, Homeland Security, and technology advances to support global customer base. Days are challenging and face paced environment. Always a learning experience and continuous progress for improvements. A diversified work culture. The hardest part of the job at L3 at times is staying on point with the ever changes taking place, but this is a double edge sword because it makes the daily efforts worth while.
Logistics and Reliability Analyst (Current Employee) – Slidell, LA – June 13, 2018
setting challenging personal time line goals and schedules for the boss often become stressful. The self induced deadlines cause problems for the worker himself. Delays outside of the workers control occur often and work quality is jeopardized.
Procurement (Current Employee) – Madison, MS – June 9, 2018
Unrealistic demands on deadlines and quotas, micro managing to the point of driving employees to distraction, little to no training, constant finger pointing when faults are found, employees with little or no management experience put in charge of teams of 4 to 10 people, constant turn over of employees, pointless endless meetings that accomplish little, badly run finances causing more work from other departments to make up the slack... I could go on and on.
Company sponsored lunches
Even these lunches are potluck...everyone has to bring something. Read the review for more.
CH-47 Mech I (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – June 8, 2018
Management knew their job well, treated employees fair, and salary was decent. Too bad the contract ended. The hardest part of the job was working in a hangar with no A/C. However the company di do their best to provide ample amount of fans around the hangar floor.
Aircraft Electronic Mechanic B (Former Employee) – Greenville, TX – June 8, 2018
There are few good supervisors at the Greenville Plant with a very stressful work environment. They ride their solid employees cause they know if the job is going to get done their ones that are going to do it. The Company training for people with low experience to none is very poor with high expectations for them to perform. Job Planning is poor as well which is why they push Visual Progress. Causing jobs to be done out of sequence. Making it harder to do the job on top of having to undo a lot of work that is already been done. (Take 1 Step Forward, then 3 Steps Back).
