    I worked at L-3 Communications as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Contracted by Superior Technical Services, the pay, for work performed at L3 communications, is distributed weekly.
    Hours worked yields alternated Fridays off. Based on 80/90 format, one works 9 hour days four days a week with alternate Fridays requiring an 8 hour workday.

    Cons

    No path to becoming an permanent employee. Some very good artists have been working with no benefits for at least 3-4 years with declarations from management that "it's not within the business model that artists be transitioned into permanent fulltime employees".
    Especially for recently graduated artists, the pay is extremely low--but still above minimum wage.
    Artists learn very early on that, at the company, art is not considered important--each artist, no matter their qualification or experience, is highly expendable.
    The work completed to internal standards is substandard--even for game-side low poly work. No work can be used in an professional 3D art portfolio.
    The Lead over the art pool group has no management nor specific art training and it shows through the low level of professionalism, low team morale, and lack of quality oversight/performance targets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Experienced senior /junior 3D artists and their output are valuable to an organization which develops serious games especially given the upward trajectory of expectation levels for the whole of potential users and customers.

    I have been working at L-3 Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very stable company with future growth

    Cons

    Limited growth, There are a lot of racial undertones at the company, there is a lot of unqualified people in positions what they did not deserve due to Nepotism because of they are related to a Mgt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your horizon and try to retain good employees . I have been with the company for 4yrs and it is a revolving door for employees who are not from Greenville,TX
