Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Lynchburg, VA
Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Lynchburg, VA

I have been working at Harris

Pros

- Room for Advancement
- Professional Atmosphere
- Good Salary / Benefits

Cons

- System Engineers travel alot, and when they travel they typically work OT, which is fine.
- - - Problem with this is that after working several weeks straight on the road and OT, you don't get little praise for the time you've put in.

- Design engineers were told they had to put in OT (50 hours/ week) and got compensated for it.
- System Engineers work over 50 hours every time they travel, which is a lot, and have never gotten compensated for it. We are the grunts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit hiring project managers, and hire more ISEs to do the workload

    Pros

    Very flexible work life balance and leave schedule
    Good benefits
    Work is tolerable, occasionally rewarding
    The work Harris is involved in is sometimes very interesting

    Cons

    Hard to advance, very stingy with promotions
    Work is monotonous sometimes, with no real value in lower rung employees' opinions
    Salary is not comparable to other companies in the same industry (in the VA area)
    Employees are not treated as valuable
    Communication on processes is limited at best, hard to find out how certain things are done
    No holiday party

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need to be made to feel like they are more valued. Information is limited and not clear. There is a lot of animosity between divisions (HITS, BCD, GCSD) which leads to many problems. Distrust between divisions is horrendously bad for business and makes simple processes seem drawn out and ridiculous.

    I worked at Harris

    Pros

    Co-Workers were great...very supportive and were a true team that worked together to accomplish goals...they gave me a reason to come to work other then just getting a paycheck

    Cons

    There were little upward mobility options and from the managers I worked with...they seemed a little bias toward some employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To listen and have an open mind and don't be so quick to judge...offer classes for learning more in the career field to further advance
