The Good: There is none. The Bad: There is plenty. The Ugly: With so many layoffs, it is obvious MID wants PID reduced to a trickle; just enough folks to maintain the current obligations to completion. Is there actually any new work scheduled to... read more

They've had layoffs and they've announced a relocation to Grand Rapids, Michigan.
MV's team needs to be reviewed and a decision made on their judgement for making decesions, (caustic environment where making a decision could cost you your job so don't make a decision) NYC has to see they have a bigger issue than just some small... read more
L-3 is leadership, how to describe it? It's like everyone is a captain and this is a sinking ship. Instead of the sailors making calls to save the ship the are taking all the life rafts and saving themselves. There is no love for the company because... read more
Sales is the first step in this viscous cycle of failures. You can not sell a plane for 2/3 the cost, tell the customer that it will be complete in an unattainable time frame with half the manpower. God help you if you need engineering support... read more
Layoffs yesterday at Greenville, Waco, and Rockwall. Rockwall layoff choices made by vp and hr manager who know nothing about the organization. Slippery slope. The sliding has just begun. Expect ice in January.
Any truth to that? maybe they will invite the folks laid off so we can get a meal while on unemployment, the only legacy left of the once great site
L-3 is not winning new contracts because of all of the FAT at the Top and overhead at Greenville, TX. / More numbers should be coming out shortly.
Numbers I heard were: Goal of 300 Voluntary 100-150 Making Rif 150-200 Posted by in another thread, wondering if there is any truth to this? My husband is at work, but from what I've heard, nothing is happening currently. Good luck to... read more
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 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... /
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
