do not work in procurement
Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) –  Mirabel, QC21 July 2017
this company in Mirabel Quebec does not consider suppliers as partners they consider them as the competition. Very poor respect with supplier, buyers are arrogant and not honest. Same can be said about quality that does not respect suppliers

Great working culture
Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON18 February 2017
Offered a challenging, exciting work environment that allowed me to achieve career success by pursuing my passion in leading-edge technologies.

Most enjoyable part of the job was the introduction of the new S1000D XML authoring format that made former technical data more readable and easier to update due to the introduction of new turret engineering data.

Field Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Halifax Nova Scotia13 July 2016
The tasking is rewarding and brings to the table daily challenges and interesting technical work. As a stand alone self managed worker the largest obstacle faced in the peer support and task management. However the greatest satisfaction is the job completion and customer satisfaction.

L'imagination pour trouver des solutions
Agent soutien technique (agent de bureau senior) (Former Employee) –  Mirabel, QC8 July 2016
Les journées filaient à la vitesse de l'éclair, environnement intéressant et stimulant, des défis quotidiens, j'ai aimé travailler chez L-3 MAS. Environnement contraignant à cause du type particulier de clients (la Défense Nationale), ça m'a permis de développer des talents et capacités multiples, des trucs que je n'aurais jamais imaginé faire dans une telle entreprise. Mes collègues me manquent, j'espère ardemment me retrouver un environnement similaire pour continuer à aider et contribuer.
Pros
Près de chez moi (45 km)
Cons
Équipements/logiciels désuets

Interesting and challenging work
Aircraft Structural Analyst (Current Employee) –  Mirabel, QC8 October 2015
Work at L-3 MAS is interesting and very challenging, as it requires hard work and discipline to be successful at fulfilling your duties.

The work consists in supporting and sustaining the CF-18 fleet of the Canadian forces, which makes the work of every employee very important as it impacts the daily usage of the fleet.

The crew is relatively young and fun to work with.

The only downside of the company is the bad management, that need to restore the confidence of the employees in it.

an honest place to work
Software developer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON6 August 2015
The people who work at L3Prime are good people and it's a place where you can work without having to wear a corporate mask.

That said, the process is highly disorganized and you will probably not be learning very much after the first few months. It's basically making & fixing web-forms and writing database queries.

On the plus side, if you have a cool idea for a page, Paul is likely to allow you to do it so that can be fun.
Pros
relaxed atmosphere
Cons
the work can be repetitive
