Career Development

Minimal opportunities to advance but will supplement related educational degrees.

Company Image

More interested in profits/shareholders than their employees. Yes, that's predominately why were working, but not enough balance to keep employees content.

Job Security

When work low/non-existent, company does not make enough effort to move people around to different departments or train for a different position.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have more concern for employees. Harris does not excel at providing employees benefits that make it a great company in regards to its competition.

What I like about the company

Flexible work hours, 9/80 schedule during the summer. Some of the people are great to work with and most everyone is helpful.

What I dislike about the company

Harris tends to come off looking cheap when it comes to providing for employees. Dated looking environment, not having the latest technology or software updates. Doesn't strive to be innovative. No 401(k) matching fund, pension or profit sharing for new employees. Raises are minimal. After work or off-site events for employee are minimal or on a shoe-string budget.

Company Culture

Culture is basically every person for themselves.

Support from management

decisions always made in the interest of shareholders and top level executives. There is no thought about employees.

Teamwork

Based on peer reviews and assessments where merit increases as well as promotions are based on individuals who shine causes a lack of teamwork.

Freedom to work independently

Management wants everyone to be self sufficient without relying on others as this takes away from other projects that people are trying to get done.

Internal Communication

Left hand often does not know what the right hand is doing.

Gender Equality

There are several women in upper level management but never seen as CEO.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Harris likes to hire college graduates to keep their payroll low.

Career Development

While i cannot speak for all of Harris Corp, my particular program does not do any training.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation is considered on the low side as compared with other corporations due to the number of turnovers.

Office / Work Environment

In terms of proper ventilation, lighting, temperature and available technology, I would say this is adequate.

Environmental Friendliness

Harris does have a recycling program but more can be done.

Work-Life Balance

Often times project due dates push aside family time. Vacations can and will be denied.

Company Image

Company integrity is sound when dealing with their customers.

Job Security

Field is growing but there is always risks of positions being eliminated. Loss of contracts, company mergers, solvency, etc.

Handicapped Accessibility

Buildings are handicap accessible outfitted with reserved parking, ramps, elevators, bathrooms

Workplace Safety

Harris does provide awareness training.

Challenging Work

Work can be challenging as new technologies become available and new requirements and/or needs arise.

Inclusive / Diverse

Harris provides a facade where teams will be put together for input on ideas but I still have yet to see any of it put in place or attempted.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs to understand the inner workings of the organization in order to make sound business decisions. Put people first and you will be amazed by what happens. You created the culture and you can change it.

What I like about the company

Flex schedule allows for work schedule adjustments when needed. Great for families.

What I dislike about the company

Management and culture of the corporation is dog eat dog. If management does not view you as having leadership potential you are black listed. Once you are slotted, you are 'allowed' to keep your job as long as you are exceeding your expectations. Performance reviews are pre-determined and because of the increased costs of healthcare you will experience a net loss of disposable income year to year. Management decisions are historically unrealistic but don't tell them that! It puts you on the short list......if you know what I mean.
