    I worked at Harris Moran full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Diversity in a word. I enjoyed working with people from so many different cultures. The benefits were terrific! It's really hard to find anyone with benefits this good and for a reasonable co-pay. Truly caring and genuinely nice people work at Harris Moran.

    Cons

    Not a good work-life balance. Typical work week was over 50 hours. Deadlines kept being moved back by the parent company in France. Annual evaluations were VERY subjective and not tied to raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire additional staff instead of working the ones you have to death!

    Pros

    New CFO and she will change the company.

    A lot of old timers with old time ways. Need new direction to save company.

    Keep on making the changes to get "can do" attitude

    Pros

    Harris Moran Seed Co has a Multi-cultural staff. The benefits are great. The overall atmosphere is good. Most managers are easy to work for and go to bat for their staff.

    Cons

    Do not tend to promote from within. Continues to grow through acquistion without increasing the necessary staff to process the extra work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the annual evaluation system. Good performance does not necessarilyt mean a good raise.
