Thread regarding L3Harris Technologies layoffs

L3H is all about profit at any cost

But instead of investing in true talent and coming up with new ideas those in charge focus on cutting costs, which usually means people. We've lost some of our best to this and we keep losing so many great folks. How long will it take this leadership to figure out that cutting people who generate profit to make profit is not the best of ideas?

From an article on the HuffPost -
"Apparently having a close personal relationship with a subordinate can net you a pretty big payout.
Christopher Kubasik, the man in line to be the CEO of Lockheed Martin, resigned from his post Friday after an internal ethics found that he had a personal relationship with a subordinate that violated the company’s code of ethics, according to a press release. Though he pretty much resigned in disgrace, Kubasik will take home a $3.5 million separation payment from the defense contractor, according to a company filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission."

So, L3 jumped at the chance to hire this piece of garbage. Tells you plenty of the kind of culture they really want, huh?

Just like when you're boiling something ... SCUM RISES TO THE TOP.
L3H IS NO DIFFERENT.

"Chris Kubasik will be way better than Bill Brown. I dont' have any doubts about it. He will try to be nice to people."

NICE TO PEOPLE? THERE MAY BE SOME WHO DISAGREE. CHECK OUT HIS PAST.

The first thing that Chris Kubasik should do is to get rid of UTC people. They have ruined the company.

Chris Kubasik will be way better than Bill Brown. I dont' have any doubts about it. He will try to be nice to people. He may bring the profit sharing program back, which was cancelled by Bill Brown. I will look forward to the upcoming changes.

the Cube is a despicable human being. how a Board could hire this guy who has demonstrated his complete lack of integrity defies belief. Everyone working their tails off to make this guy richer must feel even dirtier by contributing to his misplaced belief that he is a "leader" and actually worth even a fraction of the money he s—s out of this pathetic company...

"Chris Kubasik was set to become the CEO of Lockheed Martin when it was discovered he had been having a long-term affair with a subordinate employee. The leadership team at Lockheed Martin said that his actions were in direct contrast to the ethical values of the company and the situation led to Kubasik’s resignation from the company. The female employee with whom he had the affair is also no longer with the company."

AND THAT SAME ARTICLE DESCRIBES HIM AS A 'FAMILY MAN' AS WELL.

"Hopefully, Chris taking the ropes in a few months will clean up the house!"

Wow, you sure are naive. If you're talking about Mr. Kubasik... you should know that it's publicly out there just what a terrible leader he has been. He's had several ethical issues arise in his career. For example, this Moneyinc.com article spells it out:

"Chris Kubasik was set to become the CEO of Lockheed Martin when it was discovered he had been having a long-term affair with a subordinate employee. The leadership team at Lockheed Martin said that his actions were in direct contrast to the ethical values of the company and the situation led to Kubasik’s resignation from the company. The female employee with whom he had the affair is also no longer with the company."

So, does this housecleaning involve anyone wearing a maid's costume?

L3 culture was toxic also. Narda kept buying up companies all the while for years not turning a profit.

Legacy Harris culture is toxic. The firm was run by the HR leader (left with a big payout post L3). He drove a culture of fear, politicking and favoring his friends from UTC. Hopefully, Chris taking the ropes in a few months will clean up the house!

I am all for companies making a profit. But, when there is lying and deceptive practices that are encouraged in a very veiled way, then that's when the profit-seeking becomes something else. Asking employees to string customers along on a daily basis on their order status is just wrong. Managers and supervisors act like it's just the way things are, and I completely disagreed with this practice, so I was written up. I just decided to take the high road and leave. Best decision ever.
This sort of business ethics will catch up with L3Harris. Maybe not right away, but it will. Their reputation is already in the gutter. Beware though, that Human Resources are the overlords of the gutter rat system and will do all that they can against anyone who has spoken out. I've never met such horrible people in my entire career until I ventured into the aviation industry.

And you are still with them? Companies are NOT in business to please you, but to make profit.
