    I have been working at Harris full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There was alot before RF Div grew so quick
    But now they are systematically taking away all the good benefits in the name of cost cutting.
    Even though we made a 750Mil of profit last year
    Vertically integrated manufacturing and operations is a very good thing

    Cons

    Excessive Middle management
    Poor raises
    Poor communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees

    I worked at Harris full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Harris 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.
