Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Harris as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Hmmm ... I got paid. I had a great manager, though. That made the excessive testing bearable. And for a while, they had (too much) free food.

Cons

I was hired as a software engineer but had to do a lot of repetitive testing which got old fast.

Advice to Management

Listen to employees when they try to tell you that you are headed in the wrong direction.

    I worked at Harris full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very professional, and very interesting equipment that's state of the art. Good team work environment to fulfill the goals.

    Cons

    The powers that be at the top outsourced the job that I really liked a lot, to a foreign land and ruined my life in the process.

    Advice to Management

    To senior management: Outsourcing American jobs to a foreign land does not help our country at all, by putting your fellow older Americans on the unemployment line in a nation that practices hidden age discrimination everywhere these days, just so you guys at the top can give yourselves a raise.


  2. "Great coworkers, poor compensation for work effort"
