    Finally excited to see Senior Management taking on the good ole boy network at Harris

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Palm Bay, FL

    ProsExciting, challenging assignments
    Technology
    Potential to solve complex problems for oru country

    ConsToo much dead weight
    Limited pay for performance
    Too many layers

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Managment needs to clean house and let us middle aged Engineers take over. Momentum is starting but long way to go. (/80 is nice but not if it hurts our success and ability to grow and win new business. Bill Gattle "gets it"...we can do it in Space services. We can and wil change the game for Harris...RF is strong also

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
