Pros

You don't have to worry whether the lights will be on when you get in.
If you actually love your job, or are good at brown-nosing, you'll go far.

Cons

Then again, maybe not. There are a enough bitter, cynical people within the ranks to remind you this working here is just like working for any run-of-the-mill large corporation.

When you ask a manager or colleague for career advice or whether they like their jobs, they usually reply with the politically correct, "it's good for your career". After six to 18 months, your job will probably leave you unsatisfied and hollow at the end of the day, with the nagging feeling this is not how you pictured your life turning out.

    Pros

    Healthcare, 401K, salary, growth opportunities, ethics

    Cons

    Everything that comes with a large company vs. a small one. Nothing major.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better career ops for employees (not easy to make Harris a lifelong career)

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Melbourne, FL
    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Melbourne, FL

    I worked at Harris full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved the work, the sense of responsibility, the professionalism of my colleagues. Really felt like I truly "fit" and belonged there. Couldn't wait to get to work each day, and was typically the first to arrive. Thought I was doing a great job. Every indication from those I reported to supported that belief.

    Cons

    I was caught by total surprise one day: layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might wish to rethink the pretty brutal treatment for your salaried professionals, particularly those who are serving in a senior position, and who had just had their picture taken (and published in the local newspaper) while standing alongside the CEO on a community service activity.
