    I have been working at Harris

    Pros

    Flex schedule,401k match, good VAC policy

    Cons

    Corporate leadership is hostile towards employees, benefits are reduced every year, pay raises are insulting. There's no capital investment; test equipment is ancient and must be shared between too many engineers. Budget cuts are so deep that product quality has suffered greatly. They give a Towers-Watson engagement survey every year and then ignore the terrible results. CS is extremely profitable but the CEO is... obsessed with short-term financials, which keeps everybody stressed out. Historically it's been a terrific place to work, but under Bill Brown it's become a small step up from WalMart.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to invest in keeping employees content and engaged. Look up from the ledger once in a while and try to understand that innovation and customer satisfaction drive long-term growth.
