Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Harris full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits ok. Good place for new grads to get some experience before moving on to better job.

Cons

Salary low, does not want older software engineers, They are pushed aside or out the door. I am one and I know several others. Wants new-grads.

Advice to Management

Learn the value of experienced workers and treat them accordingly. Harris is facing a brain drain you will regret.

    I worked at Harris full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My division (PSPC) was highly regarded in the industry as an innovator and supplier of both wireless communication products and networks. A great deal of pride and hard work went into our product

    Cons

    My division was acquired by Harris in 2009, and the new management had a difficult time understanding the particular niche this particular purchase provided them access.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to consider the one business model that is currently favored as being the only one that could possibly work across all divisions of the company.
