Topics regarding layoffs at L3 Technologies
Is it just me or have a bunch of people been laid off a few at the time from different locations as we sit here and wait for the next round? It looks like L3 figured out a way to avoid bad publicity that comes with mass layoffs. It's perfect for... read more
Here is the Exercise A VP of lets say Commercial volunteers for a rif, and gets rif'd, the next week while collecting L3 severance also is hired back under the contracting firm and gets paid, so who is he related to or what pictures does he have of... read more
why does L3 Waco think its fine to layoff one person from hr & then immediately go behind backs to "transfer" another employee from crestview who is doing the same job? there are things going on behind the scene that employees should question. i hope... read more
Rumored layoff to eliminate "redundancies" now that the numbers have come back from voluntary layoffs and reorg has been announced.
So I got a job offer for L3 but it's a contract offer, the thing that scares me is that I don't want to be out of a job once the contract is up. How likely is it that they'll keep me after my contract is up?
Why hasn't anyone in corporate come to Waco and cleaned house? It doesn't take a masters, hell, an associates degree to see what's wrong in Waco. There are two floors of dead weight that needs to go. Burn rate is useless without completion. There is... read more
Anyone else get the L3 post card in the mail offering a lump sum now instead of a pension when you retire?
The management is a disgrace. They laid off some of the management and then rehired them when the coast was clear. It is the GOB out there, all I can say is stay clear. L3 walked one VP out the door (which he should have been fired in the first... read more
If you think you are a victim of wrongful termination, then submit a protest and request an independent review. L3 does have an arbitration process that only you can request. Call the L3 Ethics Hotline if you feel that your termination was... read more

Will never improve as long as the Greenville cull non-leaders are still in place. Plus the other culls that have remained JMR and DH among others with the cronies they have put in place. None have any idea what team building is. They manage by... read more
The voluntary layoff was a great thing if you had a chance to apply. I know of a couple of design managers, including me, that got walked out the week of, with no severance because of "new issues" found on a different aircraft than the one we were... read more
I Have been busting my a-- for over 19 years for this company and Raytheon. The Raytheon days were alot better. I will say this, until they get a management team in house, that understands and knows how to run the business of a true VVIP completion... read more

I feel it is important to state facts and not assumptions when addressing the situation with leadership. If you want resolution, complaining about microwaves and ice makers will not get you there. I suggest you take a good hard look starting with... read more
It is one week per year of service up to 26 weeks plus 2 weeks in lieu of notice. Plus 20 percent. Plus they keep paying their part of our medical, dental and vision for the length of our severance. Plus if you have already overdrawn on your PTO... read more

So many things are wrong with L3 Waco. The rich stay rich, the poor remain poor. Managers driving new cars, vacations, houses. They are living it up in Waco. If your not in their club, you get no raise along with a very bad review. Fancy offices... read more
Has this been completed? Disclaimer: I work for a competitor, just curious... https://www.bizjournals.com/washington/blog/fedbiz_daily/2016/03/will-l-3s-aircraft-maintenance-business-go-up-for.html
The company leads by keeping you afraid of losing your job. The budget cuts on the aircraft are a joke. The hours given do not reflect what it takes to do a quality job. Do, we cut or quality and hope the aircraft does not crash. This is the worst... read more
Why layoffs in Greenville??? I just applied for a position there, there are dozens of open positions there - has L3 gone mad? I am assuming this is legit and we know for sure that Greenville has been cutting resources (I've read all threads - so yes... read more
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 fuwking fired! We are the worst kind of... read more
Same old story the lower folks that work get the axe so the buddy system can hide the friends. Look at QC group. Use to have two managers for 45 planes. Now they have 8 or 9 managers for 5 planes. The higher rollers from Bell. All protected by an ex... read more

I hear they're on their way out in Waco. Is this true?
I know i wasnt the only one to be fired of very small stuff....how wide spread has it been over the past three months?

What are the latest rumors on Waco?
Did the "we're doing great but have to let you go" plot work at East? Anyone know if they hit the numbers?
When you have no soul your whole outlook on life is to make others just as miserable as you are. I feel so sorry for you my dear. But that rock hurts like hell on the bottom.
I just watched a video of our President Jim Gibson put on by my lead telling us how bad Waco is doing and how the employees can save money. He said we should eat in the cafeteria and turn off lights we don't need. He said that we should not travel... read more
Layoffs are bad for business. Layoffs hurt stock prices Layoffs do not increase productivity Layoffs do not increase profits Layoffs do NOT cut costs Layoffs are a byproduct of bad management Layoffs eat away at the core of even the strongest brand... read more

Completely planned. They give a lot of pep talks to motivate and phony talk about business being secure but it is only a ploy to get all the work out of you. Then they invite you into a meeting to fire you while someone is taking over your computer... read more
