Good for the single traveling types
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.

Horrible
PRODUCTION MANAGER (Former Employee), Torrance, CAFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: product
Cons: culture
I was sexually harassed BY MY BOSS and then bullied by his boss. The people that work there hate it, my employees loved me, miss me, still call me, Out of 25 employees each one has expressed their appreciation of my management style and genuine interest in the improvement of their quality of work which leads to a work team that will do anything that – more... is asked, its not that hard, people! Show respect! – less

Data Provisioner (Former Employee), Broomfield, COJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: free lunches, employee appreciation
Cons: downsizing
I corrected errors that came in via SOI files from Intrado and researched them for resolution. I learned new systems while there. Our management changed several times in the year I was there. My co-workers were all friendly and had been there for many years. The hardest part of the job was watching a fellow co-worker let go when the company downsized. – more... The most enjoyable part was that the department that I was in was very laid back. – less

Outstanding company to work for.
Aircraft Dispatcher (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: advancement and transfer opportunities.
Cons: competition with other companies to procure contract with military, contract lost to competitor company.
Strenuous work that keeps you active and on your toes. Co-workers were mostly former military and it was a perfect job to transition back to civilian life. Hardest part of the job was loss of life due to equipment failure. Most enjoyable part of the job was satisfaction achieved with every successful completed flight.

Good company with great benefits.
Principal Field Service Engineer (Current Employee), Anaheim, CAJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: great company events. excellent benefits. great working schedule
Cons: communication
L3 Communications has a welcoming working environment. Workers are friendly and willing to show you the ropes. Floor supervisors have excellent management skills and keep everyone on schedule without being overbearing. Above this level however many problems and lack of communication hamstring many processes.

The most difficult portion of my area of – more... field service was the lack of communication from the top. Field service jobs that were known about would not be relayed to the Field Service Engineers.

The most enjoyable portion of the job were the company sponsored events and the wealth of knowledge from the more senior workers. – less

a day at work
Mechanic, Second Class (Former Employee), oceanside, caJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: co-workers, boss
Cons: contract work
start the day with a list of what to do. we would either be taught what we need to do or look at the tech guide for how to do it. the manager was right there to help with any question you had. co-workers would help you when they could and you would help them. when you could. the hardest part of the job not knowing what you would be doing the next day.the – more... most enjoyable part was i worked. – less

L3 great Company, ASD Corpus Christi corrupt contract
Journeyman Level III Supervisor (2nd shift) (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: good work hours
Cons: horrible upper management and hr
Took this job because I have worked with L3 during the majority if my career in the Marine Corps. I have several friends the have been with L3 for 8 years plus. I have never herd anything bad about the company so when offered the Journeyman Supervisor job, I took it without hesitation. This contract treats te Journeyman Supervisor as a mechanic, not – more... a supervisor. HR controls the company and will not address any concerns and does not have a true open door policy. Please be careful if deciding to take this contract. By far worse decision in my post military career making. – less
