What We Do
Harris is a proven leader in tactical communications, geospatial systems and services, air traffic management, environmental solutions, avionics and electronic warfare, and space and intelligence. Harris delivers its innovative solutions through its three business segments: Communication Systems, Electronic Systems and Space and Intelligence Systems.
A Commitment to Innovation
Innovation has been at Harris’ very core since it was founded 120 years ago. Our company was born from a personal drive to create new technology that was more advanced than what existed. That first solution—a much faster printing press—changed an entire industry and launched our reputation as an enterprise that challenges the status quo.
Innovation at Harris Corporation
Innovation remains the driving force behind everything we do today. The people of Harris push technology boundaries every day—solving problems through creative thinking, agility and looking at problems from the customer’s point of view. These traits enable us to transform the communications and information technology that connects, informs and protects the world.
Our long list of notable innovations includes communications technology that enabled early NASA astronauts to speak to Mission Control; electronics that were the foundation for Wi-Fi; Global Positioning System space antennas that help navigate us everyday; advanced radios that support our warfighters and first responders; electronic warfare systems that help military pilots achieve their missions; air traffic management systems that improve safety and efficiency for the flying public; and ground and space based imaging systems to improve weather forecast timing and resolution; just to name a few….
Our dedication to the pursuit of new ideas and technology leadership is reflected in our industry-leading investment in research and development and advanced facilities that promote innovation and collaboration.
“Continually pushing the boundaries of technology through innovation has always been an essential part of Harris’ culture,”
The bi-annual Harris Technology Expo immerses participants in the full complement of Harris technology. This hands-on experience at our Global Innovation Center enables visitors to engage with interactive displays and participate in live demonstrations of cutting-edge solutions that help our customers meet their critical missions.
The 17,000 people of Harris are at the heart of our technology leadership. Each year, we celebrate Engineering Week, honoring the Harris scientists and engineers who develop new solutions to new challenges. In addition, we encourage all employees to contribute ideas through an internal innovation web site. This open, digital platform facilitates collaboration and fosters the pursuit of new solutions from diverse viewpoints.
Harris Corporation will be the best-in-class global provider of mission-critical assured communications products, systems and services to both government and commercial customers, combining advanced technology and application knowledge to offer a superior value proposition.

I have been working at Harris full-time (More than 3 years)
Working at Harris has been such a rewarding experience for me! The greatest part being what we do for the military. Our products have saved lives and I am proud to work at Harris for that reason alone! The next best thing about the company are the incredible people who work here. I hear this statement all the time from others. We are so lucky to work with and for such intelligent and thoughtful people. Some of the perks benefit wise are the "dress for your day" dress code (who doesn't love wearing jeans every day?!), flexible scheduling, the discretionary vacation policy, tuition reimbursement, a large 401K match, and the best of all... SUMMER HOURS (4, 10-hour days in the Summer)!!!! I can't say enough great things about this company. HIGHLY recommend!
This isn't necessarily a con, but in order to be successful here, you MUST work hard and put in the time/effort. The good thing is you are rewarded for your hard work, so it is worth it!
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing! You continue to give more and more to the employees and we notice and appreciate being appreciated so much!
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Harris.
Very laid back. Primarily told me about the company and what the job would be like. The total process was 2 hours, spoke to 3/4 people. I was hired about a week or so later.
