    Pros

    It has a good engineering environment. Lots of smart engineers. If you perform well you will be rewarded. Several offices around the globe make it easy to work and transfer.

    Cons

    Very little pay compared to industry standards. You had to beg for a raise. If you are not a top 3 performer you get very little opportunity to succeed. No adoption of a mobile work place environment. You had to be there for each meeting. Working remotely was frowned upon. Lots of politics and no empowerment for jr level managers. Folks barely moved from position and leadership oppurtunities came with little monetary incentive.

    Advice to Management

    1) Empower your Jr Mgrs
    2) Adopt some new methods in the workplace
    3) Incentivize leadership oppurtunities
    4) Get rid of kiss-ass employees and management

    Pros

    9/80 work week
    Benefits
    Career Advancement..if you're a go-getter
    Very bright and helpful co-workers

    Cons

    Red Tape
    Outdated OS (lots of paperwork)
    Too much non-value overhead (Authoria, CMMI, etc.)
    Avoid the Broadcast Comm Division..unless you enjoy a super sloppy organization

    Advice to Management

    Mgmnt is actually pretty darn good (I worked in Operations at GCSD..thumbs up!). It's just that the government customers have so many requirements and Harris has to play along :-( Also, the BCD division is very different and not very well run. Stick with RF Comm or GCSD.
