Not Recommended for Career Oriented People (...or most other people)

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsExcellent Benefits. Decent starting salaries. Opportunity to work with a few different types of software.

ConsHarris really needs to incorporate more modern software development practices. Inferior tools, sub-par working conditions, and a dozen different managers all telling you to do different things (and of course each one thinks their task should be your top priority). In terms of "The Joel Test", most of the software development teams are operating at a 2-4.

Poor work/life balance. A lot of long hours. Little opportunity for promotions or career advancement. Shrinking raises and salaries and increasing cost of benefits.

If Harris doesn't make some changes and start treating their software people better, the top talent is going to continue to walk out the door.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop being complacent and acting like there isn't a problem. At a certain point you have to stop doing so much risk mitigation and take a leap.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
