Happy Easter, Suzy Oops, Lori Heckles, and the South Dakota School of Mine Fields

On this Easter, this employee doesn't expect a resurrection to occur at L-3 CSW and three names are to blame for its demise: Suzy Oops, Lori Heckles, and the South Dakota School of Mine Fields. Suzy Oops, our illustrious leader, left us a culture of management malaise, an indifference to job performance, an expansion of useless buildings, office furniture, and high-end automobiles, and, her greatest gift of all, the encumpiss sap integration. Lori Heckles presided over the greatest single loss for a program in company history, but, somehow, emerged unscathed, claiming ignorance of said activities on that program but firing the manager in charge. She sets a great example for future L-3 leaders to ignore the realities on their programs for the sake of self preservation. Finally, the South Dakota School of Mine Fields (a school none of us would recognize had it not been for one of our esteemed leaders) is single-handedly responsible for educating the worst leader in company history, the same leader who promotes her husband, his brother, and the people responsible for the worst ideas at CSW.

The CADRE cult continues...

Steve Hall's Minister of Propaganda, "Master Guns" David Dewitt, released a staunch defense of his "Commander-in-Chief (CINC) of CADRE", aiming to save face for his struggling patriarch, and urging cult members this week to continue their allegiance to the fatherland, even as the walls crumbled around it. Sadly for Mr. Dewitt, the organization doesn't have the same "Semper" as his beloved corps, and members are already scrambling to disassociate themselves with an organization that has spread more poor management at L-3 than a Detroit city council or the Zambian parliament could. Once CADRE, now something else.....

Was loyal

I've never seen such dysfunction and incompetent company management. They pull this crap and wonder why the company is failing. I've never worked for, or heard of anybody working for such an a $$ backwards place. Its official, the ship has pretty much sunk. Dont be the band on the Titanic... get the hell out of that place and salvage some dignity. If your job is safe, as mine is,.. question the situation: do you really want to work for such idiotic and uncompassionate losers? I see better comradery at fast food joints. And the supervisors and managers that DO survive all try to "one up" each other because they're all clueless of how to run an are yet need maximum direct charging. Its like a bad, slow motion B movie at CSW. Good God. What a joke of a company

Sick and f**king Tired of this UOP sh!t

Whoever you are, the one dipsh1t who keeps talking smack about University of Phoenix: go shove a broom handle up your fat a55, you piece of repeatin shit. Yeah we all get it: you are of the opinion that your degree from BYU was more difficultly obtained and resulted in a superior level of intelliegence and competence. You only prove your own unintelligence, for the measure of knowledge is not grades, the measure of success is not money - ah f*ck it, they don't teach you Mormon pr1cks how to think for yourselves - this is all lost on you. Just knock off the UOP bashing, you d@mn bufoon.

Poor Cadre employees

Your free ride is over. Steve Hall learned he was on the list and just walked out today.He resigned wihtout a word to all his Cadre students. I have no idea why he held a directors level without a single person reporting to him? Talk about a waste of money. At least that program has ended that probably cost us over 2 million a year.

Teamcenter/SAP

Can anyone give me insight into your SAP/Teamcenter implementation? Our division is getting pushed to use Teamcenter (apparently it's a corp standard) even though we know of other divisions that use other products. I've heard the CSW encompass implementation was way over run (north of $120M, estimate was originally $60), what I don't know if it's actually working now that you are 8 months into go live. Sounds to me a lot of jobs could have been saved with that extra $60M. Worse yet, there is talk of hosting the CSW solution at our site! Any feedback would be approeciated. Good luck to all tomorrow.

It is exciting

I agree that it is exiting....because we finally get to see just how insane the place is. Will they let any of the worthless managers go (probably not), will they be insane enough to can more of Engineering (probably (they are that stupid)), will they can any of their friends and buddies who are friendly in the hall but do nothing (I doubt it)....I guess the plan is just keep letting people go to make up for cost overruns...interesting math - hey dummies you made this mess why don't fire yourselves and save all that $$$ we pay you to make bad decisions.

So sick of CSW

I hope I get the axe on Thursday so I can at least get a severance because either way, I'm outta this shit hole. I should have taken the VSO because I can't take it anymore. The management is incompetent, defense budget is continually shrinking, the morale and work ethic of the employees is atrocious, SAP and Teamcenter have made my job miserable, and the division can't even turn a respectable profit despite solid bookings! How many managers have been laid off since this whole mess started last year? One? None? Until there is turnover in this area, this division will perpetually experience the same problems. The current lineup of managers, directors, and VPs were put into place when the company was making ungodly amounts of money. Because of this, these people don't know how to deal with crisis because they never had to. Nowadays, they are tripping all over themselves trying to steer a sinking ship. All the while, they'll still somehow keep getting promoted. /rant.

This is good news for those who leave!

You want believe the amount of drama at CSW.. why we'll never know. My new company has almost 0 drama.. it's a nice change of pace. And yeah the jobs around here are a little sparse, but plenty of jobs at Hill AFB, and Dugway if you can stand the hour commute or move closer.

L-3 Comm CSW Layoffs April 10, 2014

Too few took VSO option, as you all know. Corporate did some lines and a magic number appeared on paper this week, 310 people getting walked out this Thursday. Expect security and the police to be hanging out. No managers again (wow, really?). Get contact information and good luck!! Those who are leaving will be better off actually considering some of the other hatemail coming down the pike!!! CSW actively being looked at by prospective buyers, once again... no news there this comes in cycles. Good luck all!

Here's how it SHOULD have happened LAST year:

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/massive-layoffs-at-disney-game-unit-as-700-people-lose-their-jobs/1100-6418153/ Bam! There you go! 25% of it's global workforce. L-3 didn't do that as, well, we all know that management likes to milk things as long as possible, kind of like Enron, instead of trying to legitimately repair itself. So, you get layoffs AND get sold to 'a" bidder! Makes perfect sense! These jobs aren't for "us", they are for the people that invested $$$$$$$ for the sake of turning 4-5% over a few years, that's it.

Been there Done That

I was laid off last year CSW and went through all of the emotions. angry, feeling no one wanted me anymore. The fact is it happened and you deal with it. Get your resume ready now because it takes a while to get it looking good. Go to the OCM training ( that L3 pays for) early and get your emails and phone numbers of references now as CSW will tell you not to contact people at work. Also update your Linkedin profile so you start your networking. If you're a EET Degree you're probably on the list there were a large number last year with that degree. if you're one of the lucky ones that stay a phone call to your friend that weren't so lucky will help. Remember there's not a lot of difference between those that stayed and those shown the door. L3 has great people so wish you all the best. Goodluck
