Post any information about potential or actual Harris Layoffs in 2019?

Yep - this week they let multiple VPs, Directors, and some other people go - didn’t want to have to be bothered with this after the Monday merge.
I work for Harris. The majority of layoffs will be with L3, not Harris. Of course there will be layoffs on both sides but remember who owns what. Harris owns 51% of the stock and L3 owns 49%. Lets you know who's in control. Remember the Sprint Nextel merger.
Should I apply for a Harris job in Clifton NJ? How is the work environment? Are there many layoffs at this location? How's the yearly pay increase and bonus payout? How many vacation weeks and sick time do you get? Is it stressful working in the engineering department? Do you have to work on multiple projects at the same time? Do managers micro-manage and watch what time you come in and leave? Can you work from home on days when the weather is bad or do you have to use your vacation time?
Wait, I forget to mention that some people will leave voluntarily in 2019 for better opportunities. And some of the people who do get laid off will find other work, or decide to retire. Unfortunately, some of the people who get laid off will go through some tough times as a result.
There, that sums it up.
There will definitely be some layoffs in 2019. On the other hand, many people will be hired.
Some Harris locations may see dramatic downsizing or even close entirely. However, other locations may expand.
I think that pretty much covers it.
Harris is hiring in Salt Lake City.
I concur with the above assessment from program management perspective.
The RIF process is painful but must be done to keep our heads above water for the shareholders.
The good news is this wont happen until 2019. Be prepared with this advanced & friendly notification.
Its coming; this is an ongoing SLT discussion after the L3 merger.
To many heads with the few contracts in Fort Wayne.
Consolidation talks continue.
Keep your resumes up to date.
