What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable?

How does L-3 Communications stack up against the competition?

I didn't hear that they lost the contract but I do know that they are in trouble. Latest rumors out of the Hampton office (I have a friend that works there) is that they expect to close up shop there in Sept due to lack of work.

I am a recruiter for a division of L-3. There are around 95 separate entities that are run like individual businesses all under the L-3 umbrella. Look at stock, look at stats; you will see we are a solid fortune 200 company.

Be careful about your assumptions. The recruiter in Hampton, VA is correct. Each of the approximate 95 entities works under the L-3 Communications corporate guidance, but each has the ability to make it's own business decisions. Within each one, contracts are WON, contracts expire, contracts are recompeted, etc. but you can't judge the entire corporation on one Division's successes or failures. L-3 Com is a strong and expanding corporation.

Scared Of L-3 in Waterbury, Connecticut

87 months ago

L-3 (Titan Group) layed-off many people (senior management and workerbees) at MD Intel costumer without telling the customer it would happen. They burned bridges with their employees and the customer. I was looking to move to L-3 from Grumman and decided to look elsewhere. I am at a senior level and spoke to many ex-employees who convinced me to stay at Grumman even if not happy. Turnover is higher than Lockheed Martin according to the rumor mill - and that's very high.

My friend was one of those laid off. All of a sudden many lost jobs on a Friday afternoon. Not a happy camper after 8 years with Titan. The customer is said to be livid because they had no idea. One Monday people just did not show to work. I went from Lockheed to the private sector and with the administration change in 2008 I am happy I made. All these companies appear to be the same so be careful before you leap.

I concur that L-3 has multiple entities of mini-companies if you will under the big umbrella, and if one contract is lost, it does not mean all the cookies crumble within all the companies.

However, L-3's recent five year or younger purchases within the peninsula of Virginia, have not been in the best interest of the group. I understand that their operations facility in Newport News has been gut wrenching, as they cannot seem to secure proper leadership or keep their Navy contracts. They have been losing personnel like flys at this particular facility for the past 4 years and counting.

However, look at their facilities in Greenville, Waco, Lexington, Jackson Mississippi, Arlington, and Reston....operations here are exploding, as is the job market trying to keep up with the contracts won by each of these facilities.

L-3 Stocks have grown over the course of the past six months, and though they seem to ebb and flo with their management team, and have issues with some of their contracts in 10 facilities or less, I would not be counting them out of the races as of yet. I believe we will see Bigger and Better Plays coming from this Fortune 100 company for the CY 2008.

Does anyone know anything about the San Diego operations for L3. I've been invited in for an interview and would like to know the real deal? I don't see a statement on diversity anywhere on the L3 website. Are practices fair and ethical?

They are looking to keep the status quo with their leadership in engineering. If you are a white male, then you'll be more favorably considered than anyone else. They have a statement about values and diversity but its not exactly in practice there. Its a man's environment there and their behavior suggests they would like to keep it that way.

I was told that L-3 has a few openings for language instructor positions in VA and MD. What's like to teach for L-3? Do they pay instructors well? Does anyone know anything about their operations in these two states?
