    Pros

    Desirable locations such as Florida, Colorado and Virginia.
    Harris has some interesting high tech work supporting the United States of America most critical missions and customers.

    CEO focuses on Share price at the cost of quality, customer satisfaction, employee benefits and overall morale
    Over past 6 years CEO drove most decision making up to corporate level, business Presidents and VP/GMs have little decision authority.

    Advice to Management

    Drive decision down to lowest level.
    Focus on employee retention and overall customer and employee satisfaction.
