I have been working at Harris as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good to work for and nice people. I have enjoyed my time greatly at this company as the people are great to work with and team building occurs.

Cons

Chain of command is weird. I wish people would help me on specific things as sometimes people don't respond to emails.

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

    Pros

    Access to technology in satellite communications industry

    Cons

    All leadership and decisions must be made in DC or UK
    Morale at historic low and everyone uncertain about their future after several rounds of role eliminations. General sense is that no intelligent life resides outside of DC or UK and no examples of career trajectories into broader HRS organization

    Advice to Management

    The customer community is watching and openly critical of the adverse impact on service. The competition is perched and ready to exploit every fracture and fissure and pick up the fodder. A sincere desire to understand perception and vigilant eye is absolutely paramount to prevent further erosion and flight.

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

    Pros

    Although things have been in a relatively constant state of transition for the company, the overall work experience that this organization offers is tremendous. Great opportunities to participate and gain valuable experience. Leadership gives employees the opportunity to take on meaningful and critical responsibilities regardless of title, position or tenure. Fantastic place for learning experiences and resume builders.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be challenging because there is so much to be done and people are often stretched thin, but positive is that days go by quickly in this fast paced environment. Never watching the clock tick like in some organizations. Things seems to be evening out with the start of the new year and workloads don’t seem to be as overwhelming, although still extremely busy.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back when making decisions. Make sure you think about how changes affect all members of organization, including non “satellite” focused groups.
