    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Harris full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Past employees
    2. Free Coffee

    Cons

    There use to be a sense of a group effort to provide effective client solutions. That went out the window with the following developments: moving the corporate office decision makers to Washington DC and Melbourne, Fla.; no more local relationship to the oil and gas customers; massive layoffs for the past three years; low two percent raises which results in mass of experienced employees leaving; executive management not making any corrective decisions; and HR department lacking qualifications for their jobs. No more teamwork in this organization. I expect it to close within two years.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CEO in Washington DC,
    Get Melbourne, Fla.'s Harris Corporation office out of the oil and gas, maritime business.
    Stopping paying upper management all the wages and no raises for the worker bees
    Bring back PACT behavior because its every employee for himself. it's like being on the "Big Brother" TV show.

    "Worst job I've ever had"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rochester, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rochester, NY

    I worked at Harris full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The paychecks were never late

    Cons

    Forced overtime (albeit with pay, but was mandated to work every weekend for 4+ months)
    "Cliquey Atmosphere" - very pretentious
    Management consistently over-committed and forced the engineering staff to suffer the consequences
    The job itself was the most boring of my career
    Company knew it was one of the few employers in town (Rochester, NY) and took advantage of its situation to the full (by having no appreciation or respect for its employees)

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more realistic in what you're trying to accomplish. Everyone knows there's competition to provide the best value to customers, but when you promise too much and force your employees to deal with it, you really make the place downright miserable.
