Interview Details – Prior to the hostile takeover, hiring & interviewing was very positive and effective. Afterwards, it became sterile and stagnant. After laying off 60% of the workforce, there were statements that we were eligible to apply in other L-3 divisions. No feedback whatsoever was received from any applications.
