I have been working at Harris full-time for 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

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

    I worked at Harris full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    My division (PSPC) was highly regarded in the industry as an innovator and supplier of both wireless communication products and networks. A great deal of pride and hard work went into our product

    Cons

    My division was acquired by Harris in 2009, and the new management had a difficult time understanding the particular niche this particular purchase provided them access.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to consider the one business model that is currently favored as being the only one that could possibly work across all divisions of the company.
