I have been working at Harris full-time (Less than a year)
Aside from the great benefits Harris has to offer, you will be challenged with opportunity for growth and advancement. Harris offers opportunity to increase your skills and grow either in or into your position. I love room for advancement into other segments if your willing to re-locate. This company exercise a good work-life balance.
Many of the processes can be antiquated and require stream ling. There can be a redundancy of information making it challenging of those processes that are already in place and not being utilized properly. Communication among upper management and lower management require improvement.
Advice to Management
The knowledge and trust of employees should be considered when making decisions regarding the request of reports and information. There are many times management is requesting information when there are system in place and already accessible to upper management.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Dulles, VA) in May 2011.
Multiple interviews in one day. Organized and on time. The recruiter was good with follow up and keeping me in the loop for where they were in the process. If you are in HR you know how the interviewing process goes for us. Lots of assessment on fit, style, how you handle situations. Very behavioral based. Will interview with HR peers and client group leaders/members.
There was no negotiating. If there is, you go through the recruiter who has to get the ok from the hiring manager and HR Business Partner. You can't negotiate vacation time, PTO, etc. Note as of June 2013 they are slowly doing away with the 9/80 schedule. This was the main selling point.
