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

    Pros

    40 hour work week most of the time. Somewhat interesting things to work on. Decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Dilapidated old Kodak facilities with poor heating and air conditioning, worn out carpets and furniture from the 80s.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the facilities. We have people sitting at desks that appear to be WWII surplus.

    I worked at Harris full-time

    Pros

    Great culture for new grads, beautiful new building, interesting products

    Cons

    Low salaries, no annual bonus, minimal feedback, slow growth/stagnant trajectory

    Advice to Management

    Reward high performers and get rid of low performers. I often felt like our processes and low performing employees restricted us. Create a culture of removing inefficiencies and errors. Then FINANCIALLY reward those employees who perform.
