L3Harris has its roots in both the entrepreneurial spirit of the American Industrial Revolution and the earliest days of the space program.

L3Harris’ heritage is drawn from two companies – one with a proud history of more than a century of technology and communications leadership (Harris Corporation) and a younger company (L3 Technologies) comprised of some of the most successful aerospace and defense contractors in history.

History of Harris Corporation
In 1895, Alfred Harris disrupted the printing industry problem by creating a faster printing press, establishing the Harris Automatic Press Company in Niles, OH. Harris built on that early innovation by evolving in the following decades into an electronic communications provider. As the space race accelerated, Harris acquired Radiation Inc., and became a leader in miniaturized electronic tracking and pulse code technology. After relocating to Melbourne, FL, in the 1970s, Harris Corporation transformed itself into a global communications and information technology company

History of L3 Technologies
L3 Technologies was created in 1997 as L-3 Communications, named for the three initials of founders Frank Lanza and Robert LaPenta in partnership with Lehman Brothers. Lanza and LaPenta previously served in executive roles at Loral Corporation and Lockheed Martin, respectively. L3 was created through the divestiture of business segments following the merger of Lockheed Corporation and Martin Marietta – business segments that had originally been part of Loral Corporation and had been acquired by Lockheed in 1993. Under Lanza’s leadership, L3 experienced massive growth through 100+ acquisitions in its first 19 years. The company changed its name to L3 Technologies in 2016 to more accurately describe its wider scope

All Together Now – Becoming L3Harris
In 2019, Harris and L3 combined complementary strengths in a merger of equals to form L3Harris Technologies, Inc. L3Harris is an agile global aerospace and defense technology innovator, delivering end-to-end solutions that meet customers’ mission-critical needs. The company provides advanced defense and commercial technologies across air, land, sea, space and cyber domains. L3Harris has approximately $17 billion in annual revenue, 50,000 employees and customers in more than 130 countries.

Our histories are steeped in innovation, and we’re even more bullish on our future, together. We are always pressing forward.

Here's why there’s no company quite like us.

    I have been working at L3Harris full-time (More than 3 years)


    I get to be part of the biggest defense industry merger in history between Harris and L3 Technologies! As a legacy Harris employee, this company has only grown in my 3+ years here. The work is challenging and exciting and the opportunities for growth are abundant. I feel completely secure in my career trajectory here and get to work with some of the best and brightest in the industry. Not only that, but the products L3Harris makes support our military and space critical missions which is not only cool, but very close to my heart. We keep people safe and allow those who serve the ability to defend this country with some leading edge technology!

    The company itself is in growth mode and I believe it will continue to with the merger.

    Benefits are good - very competitive with the industry. The discretionary vacation policy is great - no set bank of hours, just up to your manager. The area is great as well - great schools and living on the beach (can't beat it!)


    I haven't found any yet

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at L3Harris (Alpharetta, GA) in August 2019.


    Initially I got an email a few months after submitting my resume. Then I had a phone screening with the ME Manager and we discussed my resume/experience. A couple of weeks later I had an onsite interview where I met separately with 4-5 other engineers and 1 recruiter. All the interviews were mainly me talking about my experience, resume, & previous projects I worked. Very laid back and conversational interviews.
