I have been working at Harris

Pros

Ability to work on a variety of projects (although that depends upon your group)
Occasional internationl travel opportunities
New hires start with 3 weeks vacation
Unlimited sick leave/personal time and decent 401k matching

Cons

No correlation between performance and compensation.
Upper management is wasteful and borders on incompetent
Xerox/Kodak like mentality of adaption (too little too late)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Software development doesn't cost millions of dollars. Just some motivated employees who feel they're working on meaningful projects and are being fairly compensated for their efforts.

    Pros

    Harris is staffed with very intelligent and courteous employees. Opportunity for advancement varies with the assigned program. Great benefits package. Harris Family Medical is super and continues to evolve. Compensation is fair.

    Cons

    Work life balance seems to be the biggest challenge. Very long days can be the norm. With a contract based company deadlines are met at all costs. Meeting personal obligations and planning family time can at times be very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would to find support solutions that mitigate the need for employees to work more than the equivalent of double shifts. Also, design a knowledge database as a repository for project information.
