Once was great, Now is Horrible
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – January 22, 2015
Harris was once a great company to work for, but the new CEO (Bill Brown) has quickly allowed the company to be a place where employees leave for better pastures. The company's stock price is soaring due to department cuts, budget cuts, benefits cuts, business sector divestitures, increased efficiencies, and work force losses through major attrition. In fact, workforce is down by about 3000 employees in the past 3 years. This type of environment is producing employees who are overworked and underpaid. The best employees typically leave for better opportunities, leaving only the aging workforce looking for retirement, or new college grads. This business plan has destroyed a company that use to attract top talent, even though they paid sub-market salaries. Look for the CEO to take his golden parachute in the near future, and leave the next leader holding the bag, as this company crumbles under the weight of not having built any organic revenue growth since 2011.
