Current Employee - Software Engineer in Rochester, NY

I have been working at Harris full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Talented and friendly coworkers....even though most of them are not staying for long.
- Lots of different state of the art technology projects and opportunities to work on.
- Working culture is very different among different teams.
- Lots of opportunities for hopping to different teams (if your supervisors/managers are friendly)

Cons

- 9/80 does NOT apply in most area
- Ridiculously low annual salary raise compare to similar job function in the market.
- Basically do nothing to retain talented employees.
- Cut back on many benefits and expect further cuts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Some direct supervisors (non-managers) for level 1,2 in the lower management are clueless even in the standard of management 101. Too many layers of management in the lower-mid tier decreases job efficiency and satisfaction.
- Pay more attention to the market condition (not just the local market!) about retaining the talents in specific job function. In certain area, one good worker can be more efficient than 5 not so good ones.
