    I worked at Harris Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None for the company other than it was located in a nice town with local schools, amenities, and community to raise family.

    Cons

    Does not value diversity in either thoughts, gender, or ethncity. Senior management has a very narrow minded view of the world. I am surprise the company has survived this long considering globalization has taken off since the early 90s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to train the right leaders so you have global leaders who value human capital to differentiate your value to your customers. It is the employees that make the difference. Learn from such former CEO like Jack Welch who has instilled this in GE.

    Good engineers trying to work with poor management (Energy Group)

    I worked at Harris Group

    Pros

    The HGI energy group does a great job attracting good engineers and designers. I really enjoyed working with my peers during my time there.

    Cons

    The project management is completely out of touch with the real work being done. Further, the management structure is setup to make it impossible to get everyone working with the same tools and with consistent, quality review. Further, the scheduling of projects often creates unrealistic client expectations and/or artificial work crunches.

    Please note this only applies to the Energy division where I worked. I have the impression other divisions are managed much better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior discipline engineers who review everything going out the door are desperately needed.

    A consistent, quality project management program needs to be put in place where engineering has input starting at the proposal stage.
