"Working for a subsidiary of L-3 comes with career challenges. Contract work varies and each project manager is very different. I would recommend that anyone seeking work with this company to take the time to research the project manager for the job you are applying for. I would also recommend you research your options for follow-on work once the contract is complete. If you decide to work for any company that falls under L3, utilize the opportunities they offer for additional training and certs."

"Great company! I've been working for the company almost 2 years and the environment is very welcoming. Only drawback is that it's contract work and no real stability on a certain contract. Everything else is perfect!"

"If you are an "outsider" and not from the local area, you will be treated as such. The GM and his assistant were promoted via the peter principal. If L3 would just open their eyes and replace those incompetent people, their profits reported would actually be true and not just a number on paper."
