Pros

good place to work, low pressure, can learn a lot since they average tenure age is very high, good overall process practice, safe

Cons

be more diverse, clear path to grow, allow employees to move dynamically within the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

open more to diversity which by itself will lead to new business opportunities outside of government work.

    Pros

    Decent work-life balance with 9/80 work schedules. Reasonably cheap and safe location to be working at. Traveling on early Monday mornings out of Orlando, company pays for Sunday night stay in Orlando.

    Cons

    Not sure how Harris is trying to be more international but is not at all a conducive environment for a diverse work force. Many jobs are US citizens only in corporate office!!! There is pressure to be "white" and "male" in order to get promotions and recognition. Pressure to conform to religion (Christianity) at work as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start with diversity at Harris CHQ! This is one of the most homogeneous environment I've ever worked in. I worked in Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, Texas, California, etc.

    Pros

    Harris is the only game in town for many professions. The majority of the employees are nice, friendly people and enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    Engineering managers paint a smile on their faces in the morning and maintain it all day while telling their employees what they want to hear. The next employee may be told the exact opposite if that gets him/her out of the office. EM's are experts at conveying untruths and denials. Each section seems to have a good ole boys/girls club and if you are not an active member, don't expect your thoughts/ideas to be heard or to be compensated for your hard work or suggestions that would benefit Harris. The EM's don't want to hear experienced peoples recommendation. They only want to utilize their own ideas and will get support from the selected buddies. Employees used to be able to disagree with an EM, discuss and resolve the issue. Todays EM's theory is, "It;s my way or no way". The employees at Harris have learned that escalation to director level or HR is useless because it is always a "No Win" situation. Harris protects their EM's by constantly changing directors and HR personell. This allows them the, "I was not aware of the history excuse" when approached. HR has always sided with the highest level person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    VP's need to get out among the troops in a non-threatening atmosphere, collect some historical useful data and clean house. The directors and EM's are all afraid of stepping on each others toes. This is where the cut backs need to occur.
