Enjoyed my experience at Harris

Software Engineer II (Former Employee)

ProsHarris had great people and I was able to learn from them without any issues and they were open to learning from me bringing skills in not only engineering but also the military. Harris is a very Veteran friendly (35th on GI Jobs) and that is very important to me being that I was unemployed after Afghanistan for 7 months. The technology was superb and loved every day learning more and expanding upon my skills as a Software Engineer.

ConsThe Ideas page. I had several ideas that came right from my experiences in Afghanistan that after submitted never went anywhere. One did but only as far as the chief scientists but then stopped dead. After that I stopped submitting ideas.

Advice to Senior Management1) Learn military 101. When you are in the defense industry and don't know the difference between a squad and brigade and you interact with military personnel. It doesn't make you look good, regardless of your position.

2) Take time to develop an APP that trains the average soldier on the usage of the AN/PRC117G and AN/PRC152. Many soldiers go with the thales products (EMBITTER) AN/PRC148 because the user interface is better. I did in Afghanistan. Does it really matter is no one is funding it. Take the initiative and put some IRAD money on it.

3) Take the time and give AN/PRC152 radios to soldier when they are in Basic Training and Officer Candidate Schools. Soldiers, and I am one, will always gravitate towards what is familiar and it's only during these times is the best time to get soldiers "USED" to those radios. The investment is worth the effort.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Worst Management Ever

    Systems Administration (Current Employee) Melbourne, FL

    I have been working at Harris as a contractor for more than a year


    Pros: Not allowed to work overtime Cons: I was hired as a contractor for Harris. During that period, no expectations given. No feedback provided (even when asked) until it was… Advice to Senior Management: Take care of ALL your employees. Without us, nothing… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
