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

    Pros

    Be part of a small, dynamic startup organization within a stable, successful parent company. Lots of remote work opportunities among many divisions.

    Cons

    Very focused on financial metrics, sometimes at the expense of innovation, but that culture is changing.

    Advice to Management

    Relax a bit on the financial metrics. You have a lot of amazing, talented people that will help drive growth and build an enduring organization. Empower them to do so.

    Biennial meetings for each division to receive corporate updates and share some team building.

    Pros

    Harris is dedicated to their employees and it shows that they are open to new ideas and opportunities.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment and working remote can hide the fact that this is a large company with lots of resources and opportunities.

    Pros

    Harris is a great place to work. The people here genuinely care about each other. We are more of a family then co-workers.

    Cons

    I don't consider this a con, but Harris culture of fiscal responsibility is not for everyone. So, you must be on board with the culture as it relates to how we manage our finances in order to be successful here.

    Pros

    Great teams of people to work with. Amazing benefits package. Leadership that listens and takes action on requests from employees. Encouragement to stay current with technology as it moves forward.

    Wide spread geographically so less face to face time except over web conferences.

    Pros

    Our company was acquired by Harris a couple of years ago and the change has been tremendously positive. They have encouraged our business unit and employees to be innovative and proactive in problem solving and looking at ways improve the products and services we provide to clients.

    They solicit feedback from staff and have worked diligently to address any gaps identified. they consistently strive to challenge team members and provide opportunities for growth within the organization. Having experienced a number of changes through various acquisition this has been by far a very positive experience overall.

    Cons

    The original merger was a little challenging but issues were addressed in a timely fashion

    I have been working at Harris Computer full-time

    Pros

    I have only been in my position for 6 months and already my manager is willing to invest in my continued education and is willing to give me more responsibilities and room to grow. This is part of the Harris culture and one of their values- Dream Realization. I feel like the leadership genuinely cares about helping you reach your goals, whether they are related to your career or personal.

    Cons

    Not so much of a con, but something people should be aware of. You have to be self motivated. A lot of people work remote or in a different office than their manager so you won't have someone looking over your shoulder all the time to make sure your work is getting done.

    Advice to Management

    Because the company can be spread out, make sure you are taking the time to connect with all of your employees so they still feel part of a team

    Pros

    They care about us like family. Great benefits and pretty good pay.

    Cons

    Some management needs to be reassessed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen when the team speaks about a team lead that isn't performing as a team lead should. The problem is we feel we aren't been heard as a team.

    I have been working at Harris Computer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Lots of options within the parent company to find other jobs bc these are smaller companies under the larger umbrella of Constellation Software
    -Options to work remotely are abundant with some positions
    - Company values are in line with being customer and worker centric

    Cons

    - Communication is lacking in our business unit, the EVP puts the cart before the horse on MANY occasions
    - We don't have enough people to do the needed work and it doesn't appear that there are enough open positions to even fill to do the work

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what HAS to be done and NEEDS to be done to make the product viable and keep grand plans in check unless you are going to hire staff to make all of this work.

    Pros

    Harris is a fast paced growing company that has successfully managed to maintain a structure that allows both employees and customers to experience the small company culture. The company invests in its employees and has stepped up in offering self growth opportunities.

    Cons

    It is a positive that most positions can be located anywhere. However, getting to know other members of the team can prove to be difficult.
