Harris was a good company to work for until a few years ago
Marketing Communications Administrator (Former Employee), Melbourne, FLSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: 9/80 work schedule, a variety of projects to work on
Cons: out of touch management, a bottom line mentality at the cost of employee morale
Harris was a great company to work for. However beginning in 2012 major changes including the untimely exit of a CEO and the arrival of the new CEO meant drastic changes within the company.

The focus was placed more on the bottom line at the expense of the employee. The company lost a lot of good talent and those who remain are many times miserable.
