I have been working at Harris full-time

Pros

Great employees that help one another.

Cons

Under Harris Corporation, the HR department went from so-so to terrible. They don't have a clue on what employees do in the company.
Company was making large profits and decided to layoff hundred-plus employees in the last six months.
Mass layoff in March 2012 in Houston and Aberdeen, Scotland left entire work areas not being done anymore or department managers. This has weakened the company and stalled customer projects indefinitely.

Advice to Management

Poorly trained executive management in Houston and Fairfax, Va. Virginia personnel are so removed to the realities of everyday work in Houston and Lafayette.
Clueless executive management personnel in Melbourne, Fla., don't know how to operate an energy services supplier company. They are stuck in the federal government arena and don't know how to respond to commercial energy clients.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very good at making new employees feel as if they are contributing to the growth of the company while they are only assisting upper management preparing to close down factories

    Cons

    Harris enjoys purchasing small companies, taking their patents and shutting them down to send the work to China. What a great American company who received most of their sales from the the US Military!

    Harris closed our production factory down while the "new" factory was charging more for the products we produced for 30 years before they purchased us.
