Outstanding Executive Management - but no room for advancement
Administration (Current Employee), Burlington, ON – May 31, 2014
LOVED: Coworkers Perks Every 2nd Friday off Executive Management Bagels on Fridays
DISLIKED: Unethical middle management Unethical behavior from Senior level HR Management Hours do not work if you want to spend time with family Unrealistic expectations Can not express concern over unethical behaviour without retaliation
If L-3 can stabilize following numerous reductions in force since May 2013, I believe this company can become the excellent employer it once was.
Sr. Contracts Administrator (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – May 3, 2014
Pros: we took great pride in our work, very professional environment and, with one exception, great co-workers
Cons: numerous reductions in force since may 2013 adversely affected morale
Good salary and job benefits, the not a lot of opportunities for advancement in the Product Assurance/Quality Dept. that I worked for. L-3 Corporate has removed the VP and Director that were the source of many of the moral and ethics problems during that time period. However, L-3 Communications West Div. in SLC has been experiencing a high number of – more... reductions in force from May 1013 through the end of last month. Hopefully they will be able to reorganize and provide the stabile work environment they enjoyed for many years.
My co-workers were great, with the exception of one team member. The hardest part of my job as Sr. Contracts Administrator was the very long hours, including weekends. My team members and other employees were the best part of my job which is why I would actually like to return to work at this company. I miss them! – less
Pros: quarterly free lunches, employee discounts, and overtime.
Cons: early start for day shift.
A typical day consists of sorting work orders by material type, nesting per work center production schedule, and assisting router and waterjet operators and ME's on the floor. The most that I've learned on the job is the program code. G-code in specific. Also how to fix a numeric errors in the programs that cause the machine to go idle, I've had very – more... fun yet knowledgeable co-workers. The hardest part of my job was to clean up any excess entities in a CAD file, that was exported using Catia or Unigraphics, Mastercam wasn't too bad at all. The enjoyable part of my job was staying consistent in improvements. Ex: Editing/adding auxiliary cut outs to rout a better part. – less
Sales Executive (Former Employee), Tulsa, OK – April 29, 2014
Pros: the people - sales associates, engineers and customer managers.
Cons: comp plan, service delivery, marketing, product roll out.
After a year of employment Level 3 proved to be an ever changing confused mess of order fall outs and poor product roll outs that Sales had no control over. This has to be the most frustrating job ever. If it wasn't for the good people in the sales positions, I would have left long ago.
The comp plan is concerning. Orders that fall out in the field – more... regardless of fault cause the sales team a claw back. This means orders that have been closed, sold and commissions paid can be withdrawn at a much later date even though you have nothing to do with the error of why the order did not install. I had orders clawing back 6 months.. At the start of 2014 I had -$7,000 in claw backs hit me and they continued through March. Enough is enough. – less

Stability Tester (Former Employee), Tempe, AZ – April 22, 2014
Pros: employees that worked together for the well being of the company
Cons: hours way to long with the physical demands
My duties at L-3 communications were to test infrared eye pieces for goggles for the military. Every day there was very heavy lifting as well as moving heavy test equipment.
It was very interesting how the goggles worked and what they were capable of when used in the field.
Most of my co-workers were friendly and team players.
The most enjoyable – more... part on this job was when the employees got together for a pot luck which was often since there was no cafeteria to buy your lunch and not enough time to go out and get lunch. – less
Material Coordinator (Former Employee), Fort Benning, GA – April 21, 2014
L3 was probably one of the better contracts that I have worked for. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that we worked closer with the military. On a typical day we serviced a minimum of 100 people. The hardest part of the job was being a female bending and lifting in extreme cold or extreme hot weather
