Good place to work if you have goals
Network Technician (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJuly 12, 2014
Pros: skills learned, freedom, chance for advancement
Cons: some angry techs there, client calls
Great place to work. I was a Network Technician in the Managed Services division. The things that the techs get to do there is basically operations engineering level. I worked on some pretty cool stuff. Network is Juniper, Cisco, and Alcatel mostly. Techs get to work on the PE devices as well as the CE Cisco and Juniper devices. I got a ton of exp there – more... in a very short time as they give you lots of freedom as long as you don't mess anything up. You are not really on call much unless you ask for it. This doesn't include emergency situations like huge floods, and earthquakes which take down major parts of the network. Benefits are outstanding, including Vaca. You can move up to design, provisioning, engineering. Some fello technicians are complainers and bicker constantly as they will always be technicians, but are sick of being technicians. Other techs want and are working to move up. The group is mixed between these two. I liked it alot. The only down site is the group is very customer facing, and the clients disrupt troubleshooting continually during the day with their many phone calls. Sometimes though you can keep them on and troubleshoot their issue on the fly, but not all the time as you have a quota.

All in all, this is a great place to work. If you are a tech, you will learn a TON here in a very short time. I started learning once I had the confidence to just go for it and grab that tech 3 ticket. Just don't mess any client networks up. Management isn't a concern as long as you do your job. – less

they pay very well
Aircraft Mechanic B Lead (Former Employee), Greenville, TXJuly 9, 2014
Pros: good benifits
Cons: weak union
Don't be surprised if you know more then your supervisor most of them came from doing one thing for a long period of time. if you do anything very well you will be doing it until you are fired or if your lucky you will be promoted as well. L-3 doesn't do lay offs so when they need 150 more mechanics to get a contract they hire them quick, then when – more... they don't get the contract 150 people have to go and its not going to be the 150 they just hired its going to be anyone who makes a mistake. Its not going to matter if you been there one day or 30 years, you are always one step away from being fired. There have been many people that have came back and sued the company and won. – less
