L3 Internship

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but my post on indeed was not answered. Here is my question: I'm a recent graduate in Aerospace Engineering and I'm wondering how to get into L-3. All of their entry level positions ask for a previous Co-op or Internship, I'm wondering is that a hard requirement? Should I stop wasting my time applying there if they don't let people without that requirement in? Thank you in advance!

Shame on L-3 and don’t beleive them As this dismal, painful, gloomy year ends, with loss of jobs, contracts and spirit, L-3 Mgmt. cashes in

Today, the Board of Directors proudly announced a repurchase $1.5 billion of L-3 common stock. This was done after Val Snyder repeatedly assured us that times were tough and the company could not afford salary increases or reasonable severance packages, and preceded with demotions, layoffs and threats. The severance packages offered were about one third of what former packages were and what still is standard at decent reputable US defense contractors. Furthermore, L-3’s balance sheet shows third quarter net operating cash of $390M with $508M of cash on hand. A chunk of the purchased stock will be awarded as stock options back to the executive staffs in NY and SLC. Not only is the stock and current stock options owned by top management worth more, their future stock option awards are going to be worth more too. The employees and customers of L-3 are being taken advantage of. These guys are a corrupt bunch of money-grubbing jackals stripping wealth out of the firm for themselves. The problem with the leadership of a L-3 Communications being ‘financial types’ is that they only measure success by the increase of their personal net worth. Their ethic is to accumulate as much wealth as possible for themselves and live as extravagantly as they can, while they can, before they get the boot. There is no leadership here, only hidden, self-serving greedy people and their corrupt principles. What they are doing is most likely legal, but shouldn’t be. The principles of dedication and hard work no longer matter. But they will assure you it does: after all our work is making them filthy rich. In the name of creating shareholder value, L-3 is doing splendidly. It’s been a terrific year. They must be sore from patting themselves on the back. Bonuses for the leadership should be higher than normal this year. After all, it’s stressful having to terminate and bring financial harm to the little people. These guys are making millions as the people who built the company suffer. They must be laughing at us. We’re gullible enough to believe their BS. The game they’re playing is so easy, in SLC people will believe anything you tell them, such fools. It’s like taking candy from a baby. What could that $1.5B have done? We could have developed products, saved careers, treated employees with dignity, and been treated like we have value as well as help our country. But instead, these guys are lining their wallets and taking what we have worked for. Shame on you L-3 Executives, shame on you. Shame on you Val, Rich, Mike and Ralph.

"Shoot The Dog ?"

RCA and it's longtime mascot, Nipper have done more to change electronics and communications in the USA and the world for over 100 years. Now it seems Management has embraced a cult mentality called "FOCU$ $ELLING" founded by the Reverend Rory Clark. CSE paid the Reverend $800,000 to usher in a new "Business Mentality" that has more in common with Scientology than the Defense Industry. "Running Rhinos" were hand picked to spread the word; think of it as "Wall St" meets "Jumanji". The Used Car Salesman & The Tin Man were told by Clark to "Shoot the Dog" (Nipper) i.e. getting rid of the RCA blueprint for success. John Mega & Susan Opp may have given the Car Salesman enough rope. As for the Reverend Rory Clark ? Jesus the Nazarene threw your kind out of the Temple….Beware Fal$E Profit$

“Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.” Mathew 7:20

Dear Lord, thank you for ridding us of Val Snyder. He was an evil little weasel that brought great harm and suffering to L-3. His “fruit” is the pain and loss CSW suffers from today. He was the worst president the division has ever had, by far. There is no joy today, only the shock, destruction and terror he leaves in his wake. It would be appropriate for corporate management to learn a lesson here and go back to consider how they made the horrid mistake of putting such an incapable stooge into a key position. He had poor engineering skills, and little to no background in business systems, manufacturing, finance, process, quality, supply chain management, marketing, and program management or the ability to build strong customer relationships. And yet, he was given the position to lead the company at a critical transitional juncture in its history. In retrospect, it was like giving a 5 year old a 5-gallon can of gasoline and a box of matches. The outcome was inevitable. He had no admirable character traits: no sense of loyalty, no sense of duty, no vision for how to develop products that could compete in our niche market and grow the company. He had not a drop of patriotic blood in his body. He never considered how L-3 could help support our nations security. Poor Frank Lanza would roll over in his grave if he knew what dismal leadership his original flagship division had in place. Sorry if some readers here feel like Val is being kicked while already down, that is not the purpose of this message. There is a serious lesson to be learned here. The culture of the company develops directly from the senior leader. It is how that person, on a daily basis, acts, thinks, and behaves that sets to tone of the culture. In selecting the next president, it would be wise if both competent and noble traits were the criteria for selection. The division’s culture has been deeply corrupted. During the past few years, higher-level management decisions were made based on cronyism, settling grudges, self-benefiting politics, nepotism, paranoia, and who knows what other nonsense. We need someone with a sense of direction with the desire to lead and ability to compete. We need someone with character. Someone who is tough, fair, and can separate the BS from fact. The days of nepotism and petty politics needs to end. How are we going to compete with the new entrants in the high bandwidth secure communications market? How are we going to structure the company to make better decisions, products the services need and want, be more streamlined to lower costs, quicker to market, with added features and higher reliability. How do we reward people who will build a strong company verses ego-building empires? How are we going to reduce and eliminate inefficiency? How do we get rid of the fiefdoms that drive costs yet add little to no value? How are we going to make the business systems work efficiently, without armies of analysts? (It’s in many departments it's in their own self interest to not let SAP work) How can we use discretionary IRAD money to prove concepts and reduce technical risks on upcoming competitive contracts rather than pay for things that should bid as contract specific tasks? How do we earn back customers respect, trust and business? How do we get our dignity back? We are a company in crisis and are desperate for honorable leadership. We need someone who knows the market, knows how to run a business, and refuses the corrupt ways of the current leadership team. It's time to clean house.

Suggestion for Improvement

Although the experiment to allow the "arrogant and incompetent" to lead L-3 CSW has been oddly interesting, (really, could these boobs have done any worse?) you have to ask the question “how in the hell could this have happened?” Aren’t big corporations motivated to make profits, increase shareholders value, and stuff like that? It’s costing L-3 untold fortunes, lost customers, the inability to perform, damaged reputation and personal harm to employees and their families. And yet the ‘leadership’ is doing just fine with their inflated salaries, bonuses and stock options despite how badly they are bungling things. Maybe the current state of affairs has resulted from a “Darwinistic System” that has somehow perversely developed at L-3 CSW. It appears that the L-3 selection process for advancing up the ranks has somehow morphed over time and determined the preferred characteristics of brown nosing, buck passing, manipulation of the truth, passive aggressive bullying and the ability to vilify others while self promoting to be most desirable traits. The selection process for promotion has resulted in the current group of sycophant suck-ups to rise to the top of the management structure. It is not the strongest or the most intelligent that are surviving and prospering at L-3, but those who can best deny reality, and seduce senior level management into pulling them up the chain of command. Psychopaths love being surrounded by sycophants. Greed and self-interest may have gotten them their positions, but those character traits can only yield more destruction, loss and pain. It's time to find new leadership. Sorry, but sometimes the truth hurts and often when it does, it should.

Thanks for proving me wrong to my daughter that cyber bullies grow up too.

My daughter is struggling with "friends" that hide behind a computer and say mean things about her and her friends. I explained to be the better person and know that these bullies grow up, but this site proves me wrong. There are so many hateful and personal things said on this site. If you want to complain about the company or management, then back it up and keep the personal shit out of it. These are people with kids and families just like the rest of us. They may not be doing things right by your standard, but they don't deserve the name calling. For some reason it is assumed that everywhere is doing great but here at L-3. I know a lot of people that are struggling with unemployment right now in and out of Utah. The economy sucks everywhere. Stop the bullying and focus on the issues and offer up suggestions for improvements. Prove me right that the cyber bullying will get better as she gets older.

L-3 CSW True Values as demonstrated by Val Snyder Greed, disloyalty and, narcissistic self-obsession top the list

Loyalty is claimed to be as a core CSW value. (L-3 management suggests that we be “loyalty to each other” wink, wink) But, you can tell a whole lot more about a company by their actions rather than their slogans. A few years back, our greasy conman president, Val Snyder sold out L-3 CSW to work for a direct competitor, CUBIC. Years later, his selection to become the President of CSW is very telling concerning actual L-3 values. His ascendance to lead CSW would be comparable to NSA choosing Eric Snowden to run the agency, or promoting Benedict Arnold to lead the Continental Army. One can only construe that the guys up at Corp. prefer greedy little weasels and their narcissistic values for top leadership positions. Sure the leaderships arrogant, incompetent and malfeasant behavior is harmful to morale, performance, and the little things like lack of profit, but these are executives; it’s clear that the worker bee employees and their families don’t matter whatsoever. Executives are not accountable for misdeeds and disloyalty; instead, they are rewarded. The lesson is clear, if you want to get ahead at L-3 CSW, whatever you do, don’t be a loyal hard working fool, that doesn’t matter at L-3! Be a self-indulgent traitor. Be like Val! Learn as much as you can about L-3’s intellectual property, then, look to leverage your career by selling that knowledge to any DoD communication system house wanting to break into the L-3 dominated market. Then, when they start getting wise to you, get a job at any beltway bandit claiming you know all about the DoD communications market. And that will eventually lead you back to working with L-3, where you can now claim you know about the competition, without ever having to really do anything. Oh, and wear a large zirconium earring and put lots of grease in your hair. The Corp guys really like that too.

I believe my unique qualifications as a leader in both military and industry outside of the political status quo are exactly what this great country needs in order to place it 'back on track'. Financially, I cannot compete with the current big money political incumbents. That said, I will be waging a true grass roots campaign, unlike any that has ever been done before. Specifically, I will be campaigning from the public restrooms of this great nation. My cadre of young loyalists will be placing election flyers around the restrooms of your facility in the future.

Seed Corn Buffet

Consider what outsourcing IT/IRM says about the downward spiraling division. The action presents yet another way to induce financial and career pain and suffering for the IT/IRM employees of L-3 CSW. Val can prove how he could care less about people, by choosing to layoff a hundred employees (maybe two hundred?). And he’s betting he’ll get rewarded for it. Doing so will prove to corporate management how cold and ruthless he is. After all bonus time is coming up! (Ebenezer Scrooge would be so proud) IT responsiveness will worsen. We all know too well the SAP disaster and it’s extraordinary impact on performance. The CSW “leadership” announced when they made the horrific mistake, with their gleeful arrogant incompetence that they would “burn the boats” with regard to the legacy system. “No going back” they boasted. Furthermore they spent $140,000,000 to $200,000,000 million (maybe more) and causing tremendous additional cost to producing their ”cost plus” products. It’s so convenient how the American taxpayer picks up the bill for their catastrophe. No one better say anything either; remember who can lay you off! Just think of what could have been invented, developed or improved if the funds were spent in a smart, strategic way to benefit all departments. CSW once had a unique reputation for being flexible and responsive to meet urgent customer needs. No more. The new company focus has turned to eating the seed corn, (goodbye IT!) protect the senior elite for as long as they can by making it appear like they’re controlling costs, when by the divesting of capability only accelerates the threat from emerging competitors. Although it would be interesting if employees could rate CSW upper management and the executive staff, this is not a democracy. This culture is now a dictatorial, paranoid mess. Regretfully, it’s going to get worse before it gets better, provided there is enough left once being fully gutted to resuscitate.

2014 Successfactors

This year I think employees should be able to rate CSW upper management and the executive staff. Are their individual contributions assisting the business to succeed or fail? Are they meeting the goals of the business? Do they communicate effectively with the business areas and organizations? Do they demonstrate the leadership skills required to do their jobs? The decisions they make have a direct impact on everyone's professional career and family life. We are now two years into a failing business under constant threat of more layoffs and disappearing work. Many of our professional friends and co-workers have faced life-changing situations in loosing their jobs. Employee moral is low and stress levels are high and unhealthy. It's time to evaluate those responsible and recommend the adjustments needed to turn this business around. Perhaps it is time to have an open crucial conversation with our leaders, set employee expectations, and if necessary force change. If we don't, we can all see where we are ultimately headed.

Management Belly Flop

The management at L-3 has devolved into an irrational, frightened and paranoid cluster. The division has never run more poorly, never. The P and VP's are substantially made up of those "connected" who have "kissed" their way up the ladder. No wonder the Communications Systems Group is laying off hundreds upon hundreds of employees. The frenzied paranoia is making the “leadership” jumpy, where they spend their days looking for ways to blame someone else for the divisions’ poor performance. There is no strategy other than the "senior leadership" covering the butts. Customers are fed up and are leaving the once well-respected firm. Customers are treated like they are the enemy and the problem. It is a wonder why Corp would have assigned such a flop as Val Snyder to manage CSW. Val is exceptionally able at destroying the division. How much longer will Corp allow the arrogant and incompetent to lead?

Conclusiveness has never been one of Grandpa Munster’s strong suits. However, at the behest and anticipation of the union membership grandpa acquiesced. Moments of felicity pervaded the atmosphere akin to children on Christmas morning as the long awaited ‘package’ arrived. This however, was October and to the chagrin of many the long awaited package seemed more like last year’s Halloween candy, a ‘trick or treat.’ To some it was like receiving their favorite jumbo candy bar, while to others it was no better than a small packet of sweet tarts. The paradox lies in the fact that those who will gladly concur are not the personage management desires. Never did human sagacity utter a more pregnant truth: If you want something bad enough, by golly, go out and get it! The injudicious execution by upper management’s unconsummated effort to influence certain individuals reflects the great chasm which exists between a social stratum sharing basic economic characteristics. You desire something, and we desire something. You frivolously expend large sums of money on various projects while trying to inveigle certain individuals into accepting a package that has no significant importance to the ones you truly desire. Subsequently, layoffs occur touching key personnel vital to the company’s continued success. You have no one to place blame upon, but yourselves. You’ve cut too many deals with grandpa, dicing and slicing union membership into several levels; categorizing certain skills in an effort to keep the chosen few. And now you are in dill. I once again iterate. Find out what it will take to allure and achieve the desired results you wish to obtain. It is pathetic to observe the complete lack of imagination on the part of certain management of the upper-income levels, equally devoid of experience, equally glib with criticism directed against workers. Trick or treat anyone?
