Was a great place to work, knowing you are making night vison for the US Military, but like most big companies the politics take over and people lose their jobs

Maintenance/Site Manager (Former Employee), PARFebruary 17, 2014
military contracting will never offer the highest in job security but the rewards are great. high pace work environment makes for a challenge for anyone wanting to learn.

No Management and No employee support
Buyer (Former Employee), Reston, VAFebruary 15, 2014
Cons: bad management
Is just a matter of time before Management places you under the wheels of the bus. L-3 STRATIS would much rather bring on more people at less money. No respect for experience.

An excellent company to work for. I've been with L-3 for almost 13 years.
Senior Project Manager JRDC (Current Employee), Schriever AFB, COFebruary 15, 2014
I've been able to advance and grow over almost 13 years with L-3 Communications. As with any job, the most enjoyable part of the job has been the relationships and friendships I've been able to build throughout those years. Additionally, I've learned many skills to put in my "toolbar."

Enjoy working for the military
Material Coordinator (Current Employee), Huntsville alFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: great experience, pay, and benefits.
Cons: lacks a family atmosphere, but is expected in a military environment
I enjoy working for a company that supports military aircraft. It never panned out for me to join the military as I was always a family man first, but this is as close as I will come to fulfilling my personality as an employee. I enjoy meeting high ranking officials who are courteous enough to take the time to thank the workers who make their aircraft – more... mission capable. I enjoy working with the team around me and getting the job done right the first time – less

Better than most
Executive Secretary (Former Employee), Hauppauge, NYFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: a lot of time off - that you could convert to cash.
Cons: you were not allowed to take the time
I was hired 8 1/2 years ago for a position with the Vice-President of Engineering. I loved my company from the beginning as the people that I worked with and the company as a whole was a great place to work. There were many perks including increased Personal Time and Vacation time earned, amongst other things. I made many friends there and for the most – more... part enjoyed getting up every day to go to work. The hardest part of the job was it was definitely a top-heavy good old boys club where there was more VPs and Directors than worker-bees, and as long as they got there bonus's, all was right in their world. Now that they have had a 25% layoff of mostly worker-bees, you wonder how the work is going to get done. – less

I love working for L-3, however, in the area I currently work, there is not opportunity for advancement. I am focusing on my retirement at this stage of my life and I would prefer a job that I can grow in financially.

Great people and opportunity to work with advanced technology
Program Manager (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UtahFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: benefits, professional environment
Cons: stress, plitics, sap implementation
L-3 is a great place to work if you enjoy technology. I was able to learn about the US Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance system and participate in advancing our nations capabilities. The most difficult aspect of the business is attempt continuous improvement with the matrix departments that focus on process which focuses on routine rather than – more... improvement. It's like fighting city hall. They claim they are for improving, but fiercely resist change. Also, the politics of a decreasing defense budget is bringing out the worst in peoples behavior, especial among the executive staff. – less

Field Service Representative (Current Employee), USAFebruary 8, 2014
The job in itself is fulfilling and can be challenging at times. This is not the job for the average family. Travel is expected and at any time must be able to move with short notice.
