    Pros

    Good benefits, salary, etc. Regardless of the bad things I descrive under "Cons" about some personnel at Harris, there are many talented and friendly people at Harris who will deserve your loyalty if you choose to work there.

    Cons

    Harris seems to have a very politically conservative culture. On some programs there are cliques of senior people who inject religion into that culture. There seem to be a lot of senior technical employees that prevent sharing of knowledge, don't apparently do much, but are somehow indispensable. I think a lot of people are just hanging on until they are able to or are forced to retire I think that many others have made their home at Harris because operate in ways that wouldn't be tolerated in a more urban or multicultural area. If senior technical people don't have enough to do, then they push junior employees aside, and make it seem like the tasks are otherwise worthy of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe it is time to take the medicine and have some layoffs.
