Pros

The people at Harris are the best reason to work here. Everyone is incredibly friendly and willing to help get the job done. The benefits are excellent at this company, and the location can't be beat.

Cons

The yearly review process is awful. It's tedious, the software used is flaky at best, and the results are biased. It is incredibly difficult to judge people who do completely different jobs, so I will give management a little lee-way, however we should not limit high performers to 10%. If someone is a high performer, they deserve to be rated that way, not just if they make the 10% cut. I understand the money and how to distribute that, but the wording on the review and the way the promotion handbook is laid out causes issues with top 10%. The work seems to be cyclical and not consistent. Finding a good team and continuing to work with that same team is difficult since the company is so large.

Advice to Management

Communication has improved over the last few years, which is great. However, there is still great room for improvement for getting the young employees at Harris the opportunity to grow and advance quickly within the company.

    Pros

    Reasonable Pay - That's about it.

    Cons

    Most unethical Management company i have Ever experienced. Documented lies in which they communicated Intentions about Plans for Divisions or their philosophy to Invest in New Technology Went by the wayside within months of Not in One but in several indepent cases.

    Incredibly Short Term, Wall Street driven quarterly thinking!

    Alot of arrogante due to the war driven growth of the last Years. As this Cycle Comestibles to an end it will Be interesting and certainly painful to See how much worse this Company will Start treating its employees....

    Advice to Management

    Get a backbone and stay the Course on your Investment decisions otherwise Watch Technology Edge dissapear and the Company crumble.

    Pros

    The people that work there are for the most part really dedicated to doing a good job and work very hard. The benefits are very good and the pay is fairly good as well.

    Cons

    Way too many changes with executive leadership. The direction of the company changes every 6 months due to this. They are very short sighted and truly are only concerned about the short term for investors. Working for a public company can be very challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing your teams and direction every 6 months. Your team members are becoming very frustrated.
