    Current Employee - FPGA Design Engineer in Salt Lake City, UT (US)

    I have been working at L-3 Communications full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Note: this applies to CSW in Salt Lake City
    - Tons of vacation
    - Flexible 9/80 or 4/10 work weeks
    - Design Management is great - little to no politics, they will respond to requests for what type of projects you want to work.
    - People I work with are great. There's really only one guy I don't like.

    Cons

    - Business has been going way down lately. Regular layoffs for the last 18 months. Mainly due to the wars going down.
    - Hostile HR department. I think their job during the good times was to scare off talent. Constantly trying to wrest control from managers for management decisions.
    - Lame IT policies. You are not allowed to check any internet based webmail like Gmail or Hotmail. No control over your computer.
    - EnCompass - the "sweet" (sarcasm) new system that cost us hundreds of millions of dollars to implement, and is now so unwieldy that it's impossible to DO any business. It has been a massive debacle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive technology. This applies to every aspect of the company. I didn't see a culture that pushed engineering or innovation. We didn't really go for talent, just bodies. Next time a mediocre engineer goes somewhere else to get an offer, don't cower down and match it; send a message and let them leave. Make the good engineers and good programs more visible. Give incentives for engineers to come up with good ideas in addition to meeting budget and schedule. We rested on our laurels for too long while things were fat, and now we have a culture that just expects the money to roll in.
