Topics regarding layoffs at L3 Technologies
After enjoying a long period of activity with many interesting posts (and some zingers from Guy Fawkes and his followers), I hereby declare this forum dead. Those seeking interesting gossip should check out the "Latest Posts" link at the top of the... read more
That's the way it like it
Here at (LOCATION REDACTED) we are going to hear from our division president next week. Wonder what he will say?
The recent corporate reorganization adds a "segment" to increase from three to four. Does this mean the corporation feels confident that they can absorb the added overhead of an additional segment given the opportunities for growth? More acquisitions... read more
Gunna have fun this year.
Hi fellow L-3 East - Camden, NJ folks: Question..I was laid off from Camden, NJ in 2011 and was wondering what is happening there now. R u folks still reporting to L-3 CSW (Salt Lake City)? How many people are there now? I heard a rumor (of course??)... read more
Just checkin' out. (Posted this brilliant bit of insight once before but it seems to have been deleted)
Hope you all caught my December 6th investor's presentation (nothing confidential here, you can find the transcript on our web site) where we finally admit that the SAP transition at CS-West was a bit of a muddle... "lumpy" as we like to say at... read more
Be back to work all the earlier the next day!
Bin here for about 6 months and have never seen more s--- ups at any job I've ever had. Mostly of the over makeup type but plenty of smithers as well. Maybe somebody could come up with a little training pamphlet so I could learn this way to the top... read more
A rebranding is occurring of corporate, effective December 31st, 2016. L-3 Communications will now be L3 Technologies. Some (all?) email address are changing from the "@l-3com.com" to "@l3t.com"... read more
Just wanted to say how happy I am to still be part of the team. Now let's get out there and pull together for the big win.
L3 is dealing with a money problem. It has too much. I'm sure some will find its way to retained earnings but only a certain percent. Should be a nice year for better and more bonus's . We shall see. I guess they could pay it in taxes but why. Keep... read more
Is this really happening, hearing many rumors about layoffs in NYC.
I've been pricey to some info that peeves me. The level 22 ERs and certain others are getting a large increase in bonus money's this year and will be cutting the lessers bonus's. It is to keep ' key peopie' from leaving. What a crock.
Good news, L-3 CSWers. We still s---. Yep. While our layoffs haven't been as ambitious as those under Suzy Q, our remaining employees (and new employees, for that matter) still fuwking s---. We should fire ourselves, starting with me. In fact, I'm... read more
Earnings were up, but revenues were down. Margins need to be cut some more (read: pensions). Let's buy some good companies. Should we get rid of some bad ones? Got the first VIP airplane done, let's knock out the next two. Don't worry, we've got some... read more
It's taken a while but I'll be outta here in a week. I've played the kiss a-- game long enough. Watching the cheerleaders being promoted just because they just the front instead of the back. There is life after l3. I have found it. I'll never work... read more
Time to get the numbers in shape for the end of the year. Regardless, get in there and pitch!
Watt will take the hit when we don't make the numbers. They can say ivers was not leading the biz and blame watt. Course that means he will be promoted
Ivers leaving CSW to NY for a "temporary" assignment. Watt taking Ivers spot as president while Ivers is gone. Not much new business coming in. Any rumors of management changes or layoffs?
Why is it I seldom see people working here. I see more work done on highway construction crews than here. Of course you have that hr b--ch running around selecting people to be written up for being on the internet, or telling a joke. She has to... read more
All the new "business development" hires, solution architects and countless $$$$ on hocus pocus selling. Where are all the new contracts that were supposed to be pouring in? Sounds like money well spent.
Anyone has more info here? Layoffs in works for 2017 or 2016
So we have some great leaders here that came from MID. People like MN, PP, JC, and DC, and JG. Yea right. What I see are low level managers that are now in high positions, a person that was the team lead to strategically take one of the best programs... read more
Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in Great Britain, but also on the pages of thelayoff.com, an internet refuge for complainers, whiners... read more
Tomorrow is Monday, the start of a new week, so let's put aside all the DH bashing and DH defending and Waco and special coffee and all the rest and all put our shoulders to the grindstone for good old, dear old L-3! Put in a solid 40 and maybe a few... read more
So I see a lot of posts that target DH, my question is why? What has DH done that has caused such disapproval? I have worked with/for her in the past and present and all I see is someone wanting to make this place better. DH truly wants this place to... read more
Get those smooching butt kissing lips ready. Several large contracts have not yet been funded. Mostly in Waco and salt lake. Contracts have been signed but will take up to a year to begin than another 3 to 6 months to get the parts in. Look for belt... read more
Having lay off now
If you leave ur coffee cup out at csw salt lake ur probably during special coffee. At night as I walk through the offices I give some of them a swab with my member and boom special coffee. Hah. Managers
Here come the layoffs because of the nonproductive Marketing department full of pompous a--’s including the director of the department who is being forced out, coupled by a president who will not leave the building and visit customers to help drum up... read more
I've worked here for 4 years now, fresh out of college. When I first started here, I loved it. Great benefits, everyone was happy and we liked our coworkers. We believed in our work, even if it was frustrating at times. Fast-forward 4 years, and we... read more
I wonder if I smoked some weed outside instead of cigs if they would let me stand under a cover instead of out in the rain. Better yet inside the building.
