High tech. Pressure to perform.
Systems Test Engineer (Contract Assignment) (Current Employee) – Melbourne, FL – May 6, 2017
I was a contractor, so my work experiences are a bit different. I'm always hired into the projects that are way behind and they are usually desperate by the time contractors are approved and hired.
The Harris team was pushed to work 45 to 50 hours a week, but Harris pays up to 10 hours of overtime to their perm employees. I have rarely seen that in our industry.
The work was stressful and management had impossible deadlines for the project, so they kept pushing out the dates while putting pressure on the team to "catch up" the work.
The work is very high-tech, so you will gain marketable experience. The location here in Melbourne FL is wonderful, so coworkers who live here have things to do all year long.
On site cafeteria. Paid overtime.
Aggressive deadlines and pressure to work overtime.
