Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Palm Bay, FL

I have been working at Harris full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great benefits, 9/80 work schedule
The people are all very friendly and working with multiple groups is usually pretty easy.

Cons

Slow work being done by old people. No one wants to change or improve systems because "if it aint broke dont fix it." The newest slogan is "do more with less" so the work-life balance is skewing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote based on merit, not years with the company

    Salary low, does not want older software engineers, They are pushed aside or out the door. I am one and I know several others. Wants new-grads.

    Learn the value of experienced workers and treat them accordingly. Harris is facing a brain drain you will regret.
