    Pros

Harris is forward thinking and continuously looking at ways to be innovative in our products and processes.

    Cons

    That we are not in more locations

    Allow increased ability to work remotely.

    Pros

    Everyone I have worked with has been wonderful. I appreciate higher up managers taking the time to come meet me and make sure I am happy with Harris and my new role. The on-boarding process was pretty simple. The encourage you to get involved with different types of project and different types of exposures.

    Cons

    Benefits... Not so great. Training could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the benefits and establish a better training process for new employees in each role.

    I have been working at Harris full-time

    Pros

    Great experience right after graduating college. Competitive base pay out of college. Large number of programs and campuses to work at.

    Cons

    Difficult to get raises and promotions (although you will somehow find that plenty of unproductive employees have been promoted).

    Advice to Management

    Harris wonders why they lose engineers .. but then they don't pay engineers accurately according to their market value. I am currently paid over $20k beneath my market value.

    Pros

    Harris is growing and can provide a lot of job security.

    Cons

    To be paid fairly, you have to advocate for yourself. Management does not.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring new people in at ridiculously high salaries and instead look at internal employees that are underpaid.
