    I have been working at Harris full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free Coffee. My own office. There is the remote possibility of transferring to the parent company.

    Cons

    If you know the right people you can ________. Fill in the blank with what ever you want. Here at HCC you can forget it if you don't like office politics, being micro managed, power grabs at all levels, empire building middle managers, or kissing rear end. We only succeed because we have a good core of engineers that know how to get the job done despite what they are being told. HCC is cost cutting engineers salaries and raises while at the same time are hiring more managers at all levels. The engineering exodus has already begun and senior personnel are looking for work "anywhere
    else."

    Advice to Management

    Engage your brain before your knee jerks. Blindly sticking your foot in any open door for opportunities may not be a good idea if it's the lions cage. Engineering must be involved up front so you don't promise the impossible. Even when you take a "leap of faith" and "stay the course" you eventually hit bottom or have to change course to avoid hitting the rocks.
