Can't wait to get back to work on Monday

Can't wait to get back to work to start complaining and whining and shirking and underachieving. It's what I do best. It's what we do best. Oh yeah there are some people there working hard but management beats the life out of them.

EEOC - L-3 Anywhere? Darlings, this can't just be a little ole southern thing, can it?

WORD UP, WACO, et al. L-3 has issues all over the place, honey bunnies! If any of ya'll think that you may be incorrectly classified in your current job, or perhaps you feel you have been for YEARS, you would do yourself a favor to educate yourself, talk amongst yourselves, do some research, ... read more

How long has your manager / director been in his/her job?

We all know that CSW has one of the lowest turnover rates in management (in American corporate history). Many managers and directors will probably "croak" before they ever leave to a new department or role. This makes the notion of "upward movement", "fresh blood/ideas" and "innovation" practically ... read more

Waco welcomes the glorious folks from Greenville. The same folks that can't tighten hardware. The new folks are now in charge of our vvip commercial programs. On a side note. The Union representative will be here on Thursday.

Directors and VPs are smarter than managers (and everyone else in the world)

God bestowed the golden plates upon me, the other directors, and our fellow VPs for our genius, brilliance, and awesomeness, and told us to lead the weak and stupid (managers and below) to the promised land. Old Fat Walrus Man is one of the many minions under our control and we honor his life-LONG ... read more

Managers rule

Being a manager at csw for over 36 years entitles me to keep my position as they lay the younger less experienced off. I have proven my worth time and time again. That is why I am still here. Those concerned about their jobs or positions need to realize that. Good luck suckers.

Nothing to report

No significant updates from CS-East. Everything is proceeding normally. And that's the problem.

EEOC what's that in Texas

Federal contractor should adhere to federal policies someone needs to look at pay disparity in Trxas locations. Keep the those of a darker hue in the background. Good Ole Boy network is alive and well in Rockwall Texas.

Leave your job alone and do your manager

Of course this is only a viable option for certain people.

Don't do your job and leave the managers (to fend for themselves)

Hey CSWers - here's a better suggestion: don't do your jobs and leave the managers (to fend for themselves). Sit back, grab a cold one, and watch the ravenous sharks chew each others' dorsal fins off. Sound like fun?

Leave managers alone and do your jobs

I've noticed there are alot of whiners and complainers here. All your gripes are way above your pay grades. Still alot of people here with good jobs. I've been here less than five years and have had a raise every year and two promotions. Lighten up and do your job.

While U of Phoenix is certainly an awful degree, it's worth pointing out that the U of U EMBAs are the most pathetic of all.

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

The flagship university of the most bizarre organization in existence (L-3 CSW) is under investigation for its deceptive practices (according to CNN Money).

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.

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.
