All the good posts seem to disappear. The post about the bonus was just getting interesting.

When government contracting companies like L3 and Harris layoff or start losing people in bunches, the problem is they are losing lots of good knowledge from the experience people who have been working there for 10+ years. Once that knowledge is gone, it's very difficult to build a reliable competitive product. Look what happened to Boeing. USA can't afford to lose experienced knowledgeable old timers if they want to upgrade old systems and modernise. How are we going to compete with the international countries with recent college graduates. They don't even know how the basic circuitry on a board works. They don't have any real hands on lab experience. The young kids mainly know about software and coding. How many of them have actually raised their heads up from the computer screen or cell phone screen. How many actually know what they simulate on a computer doesn't always equal to how things actually work in hardware. Do they even know how temperature can affect the hardware? This is the reason why USA is so behind now in the latest gov't products compared to international countries. Instead of laying off the elder experienced knowledgeable employees, they should have them lead and teach the younger graduates entering the job. This is just my opinion,
These boomers leaving their future in the hands of a company they know dont care about them. Then get online and complain. Its the Truman Show in reverse
Nobody is forcing any of you to work there. Leave if its so bad.
L3Harris has not future. It will be acquired by another big defense contractor sooner or later. However, the company has to divest businesses in order to more attractive to the buyers. They don't care about long-term future, employee moral and local community.
I've seen my share of bad company decisions made by all levels of management. They are a bad company and only care about bottom line and stock price.
What makes it so wrong is to tell the employees all year long it's a plant shutdown for the Holidays and you can't use your 30 hrs of Holiday pay until Christmas week so people planned vacations and now are told no you have to be there to support and no you are not eligible for the bonus pay being offered for extra OT work for direct charge employees.
There is no sane reason to not give the support people spot bonuses. People in shipping and stores are expected to be there and cover the massive push. I hope management takes care of those teams. They REALLY deserve it .
I have yet to speak with anyone who sees how this could add up in an ethical fashion. Only one individual had an explanation for this that didn't end badlt. Is there real data or info to support these claims? How are we to afford this?
I'm no bean counter but I know what happens when you eat too many beans.
Harris Corporate communications team is working really hard to put a positive spin on a merger. The same thing happens to glassdoor review. They ask very single employee to post a 5-star company review to save Bill Brown from being an American worst CEO. Stay away from this company....
Sounds like they don’t want all the other l3harris entities knowing that SLC will be getting quite a bonus for a little ot during the holidays.
Yikes. Very telling.
Somebody doesn't want the media to know how upside down Salt Lake City is.....
