All of the engineers are very smart, and you will be able to learn a lot from them. The first few years, they promote quickly out of college, and that is great. Paternity leave is also good. Some management is also great.
I would say the work is very project-dependent, and on some work, you have good teams, and on others, you can have bad teams. Most of the engineers are painfully introverted, but great at their job.

Very relaxing work environment Unlimited PTO and sick time A good place if you need to raise a family and want job stability
Have to work in person as you get promoted, not very hybrid friendly High base starting salary and small increases each year afterwards (2% to 7%)

My experience at L3Harris has been very positive. My direct manager and other leadership is very supportive of growth opportunities. The work we do is challenging and rewarding.
Like many other companies in this industry, the team I work on is understaffed and overloaded, although we consistently produce above and beyond results. Given the IDL freeze, there are very limited opportunities to move internally.

It says I have to put 5 words for pros, but I really can’t.
They do not care about their employees. There is employees with less experience than I and are getting paid more. They scam minority groups with base pay. If you fall in that minority bracket. Try not to get scammed. Get what you’re worth. They say they’re ranked as one of the top military friendly companies. Supposedly. They’re not in my opinion. If you’re an employee that is in the reserves or guard, they don’t care. They overwork their employees and expect them to bus out tickets. You’re viewed as a number here and that is all that you are. Nothing more. Nothing less. Plus, HR is awful. They never resolve your problems. They’re hardly ever there. No one answers emails promptly. Which is absurd. Lastly, the union here is a scam. Don’t buy into it and waste your money on it.1

your pros are based predominantly on your manager. if they see value in you, you get trained in more stuff and MAYBE it leads to something more than a comfortable work space. and depending on what program you work you might like what you do.
There is always a probability your raise will be laughable. 3% is the max for the year. Company values new people more than veterans so your raise will never reach what new people get walking in with less experience. if your lead doesn't like you or see your value they won't let you grow. most managers will laugh at any ideas for improvment (not all) even if everyone else agrees. no bonuses most managers don't want to see you develop. when they are busy you will work as long as they can but when they are slow they barely offer training or cross training. traing courses expect you already have done the task they just certify you for it here. vs actual training course. in some spaces very toxic workspace emotionally (specifically when work load is weak)10

Benefits are ok. Salary is pretty good. MY management is mostly really good. I like working here mostly.
There are too many people in production supervision/management that are children. They’re toxic to each other and toxic to anyone else. The lack of professionalism is immense. They also don’t care for anything but making an arbitrary date and will bypass anything to make it. They don’t care that the product being made is rubbish and substandard. There’s still plenty of old racists as well. This place continues to be like a mom and pop shop instead of a multibillion dollar industry.

Decent benefits, although at or lower than the industry average.
As a former employee, I find it imperative to share my experiences, highlighting the significant managerial failings and unethical work practices that plagued my tenure there. This review aims not to disparage but to inform potential employees and stakeholders of the deep-rooted issues within the company. 1. Disparity in Work Arrangements: One of the most glaring issues was the stark contrast in work arrangements between management and the rest of the staff. While the managerial team enjoyed the flexibility of a hybrid schedule, the rest of the employees were mandated to work exclusively from the office. This double standard not only fostered a sense of inequality but also a disconnect between the leadership and their teams. 2. Lack of Accountability in Leadership: A persistent problem in the organization was the absence of accountability among the managerial ranks. Mistakes and setbacks, rather than being taken as opportunities for learning and growth, were consistently deflected onto subordinates. This culture of blame-shifting not only eroded trust but also stifled the professional development of many capable employees. 3. Unrealistic Project Budgeting and Overworking of Engineers: Perhaps the most concerning issue was the approach to project budgeting. Projects were routinely under-budgeted, based on unattainably low metrics to secure contracts. This practice led to engineers being burdened with unrealistic workloads, often requiring extended hours without additional compensation. Such practices not only raise ethical concerns but also hint at a profound disrespect for work-life balance and employee well-being. 4. Conclusion: In conclusion, while L3Harris may present opportunities in terms of projects and industry exposure, the underlying issues related to management ethics, work-life balance, and employee treatment are too significant to overlook. I urge the company to introspect and reform these practices for the betterment of its employees and its future.

Decent pay and work life balance
Hi stress. Managers several layers up are not afraid to make decisions about program execution because they tend to leave their role in less than two years. Their decisions are uniformed and they think they are better than those executing leading to unmanageable program level impacts. L3H will be fine for a bit because it is so big but they are hiding a lot of financial issues driven by poor leadership.
