National Security Solutions In The Hot Seat

Well its about time L-3 woke up and dumped National Security Solutions business unit. No profit there with such low margins in services. To much Reston overhead.

Thank you, Waco

There are plenty of minor issues throughout L-3 that CS-W and CS-E seem to continuously complain the most about, but Waco-PID takes the cake. They are truly the "Biggest Losers". -$103M is really impressive Q2 performance. Way to go!! So much for our 401k's. Why does Corporate allow this stench to ... read more

University of Phoenix (L-3 CSW's flagship university) is under investigation

The flagship university of the most bizarre organization in existence (L-3 CSW) is under investigation for its deceptive practices (according to CNN Money). How will the managers, directors, and VPs of L-3 CSW react when they find out their mail-in degrees are worth nothing? Or, are these poor ... read more

CSE Exodus Continues

How many people have left this year? My guess is almost a dozen. And we're not talking new grad, know-nothings, either. We're talking some of the best and brightest engineers in the company. Most are tired of being bullied, others realize it's a dead-end place to work. Management doesn't ... read more

Another layoff needed at CS-W

I'm a manager at CS-W. I have to admit, another layoff would come in handy right about now. I have an employee in my group that isn't working out. Layoffs have been an effective way to take care of problems. It's sad, but true.

L-3 East Camden, NJ questions.....

1. Notice that there are a lot of Linkedin profiles from the facility. 2. Why are there so many Manager titles given out to the Finance and Business Development organizations.

Give it up for the CSW Operations Group!

Since we're giving a shout out to the Facilities flunkies, let's give a shout out to Ops management, too! Management in that group has come to resemble a group of washed-up, struggling clowns who retired long ago from Circus Circus.

Second quarter 2015 on the books

We have made it to the third quarter of 2015 (some of us). Who knows what will happen in the coming three months? Booming Business... or Big Bust? Perhaps Guy Fawkes can offer some "guidance" to the staff as we head into the second half of 2015.
