Thread regarding L3Harris Technologies layoffs

Bad company

I’ve read a few posts here written by former employees who are only now seeing how bad L3’s reputation is among companies in the same industry. I’m on the verge of quitting and I’m wondering if L3 looks bad on resume so it’s harder to get a new job or is it that you heard bad things about L3 from new colleagues in new companies? Or both?

"Companies (not necessarily L3H) have been known to submit "incident reports" after an employee leaves or otherwise provide unfavorable references, which the employee is completely unaware of until some time later. It has been known to happen."

You'll have to cite specifics because I think you're full of it.
Government clearances have nothing to do with any sort of report that you think L3 is creating or sending. It's HR that is the front line for the lying and game playing.

Their quality in Waco went straight down hill when they hired all those bell losers. All of them had been kicked out or retired. So they were right up Nic's alley. After they came in all the main customers knew there were problems. They even directed one q manager to close paperwork on aircraft that they had never even seen.

They may 'bad mouth' you but they have no control over gov't clearances.

"Never bad mouth them they will blacklist your name and possibly mess with your clearances."

Hahaha L3 isn't that bad. You either get all your clearances and leave or finish a degree and move laterally. Then decide what you want to do. It's as bad as you want it to be. I've worked at multiple L3s, you get what you put in. Never bad mouth them they will blacklist your name and possibly mess with your clearances.

It's widely known what the reputation of L3/L3Harris is. I didn't know this until I left the company, but quickly heard a lot of comments from hiring managers and recruiters.
Be very aware that they specifically tell the HR Department to not cooperate with any company that calls for a reference. It's better off to give a reference from a colleague that you trust at L3 rather than ask them to call HR.

Companies don't make a hiring decision based on your previous employer. They have specific needs for skills. If you can show them how you will help them make money, they will hire you.

If you tell them you are desperate to leave L3H, they may offer you less money, because they don't think they need to reach as far to be a better option. Just tell them you want to come there for positive reasons like an opportunity to learn new things, or work on an interesting product, or be with cool customers.

Never talk down your boss or L3H during the hiring process. They may suspect you are hard to please, and would tire of them as well. If you feel compelled to share, do it after you've been at the new place for a while. But know that no one there cares about your previous job. Rolling your eyes is fine and probably all they want to know.

You are not running from L3H (even though many people do), you are running toward Company X. With that theme, and a focus on how your accumulated skills can help them succeed, L3H will recede to a bad memory.
