Competitive Pay Rate
Engineering Consultant (Former Employee) –  Palm Bay, FLNovember 12, 2018
I contracted at Harris because they offered me a higher pay rate than what I was making at the time, but they only gave me a week notice when my contract ended after 5 months. I was originally promised that they had 18 months worth of work.

Great small unit teams
Material Manager/Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  Melbourne, FLNovember 6, 2018
Great small unit teams, however, mentoring and leadership is faulting in career advancement and training. Management expects employees to know what they haven't taught or shown processes. Seen too many people "passing the buck" and employees criticized for speaking up.
Pros
great small unit teams, direct leadership is great
Cons
poor career advancement training, lack of mentors

Excellent atmoshere observed with daily surprises
Customer (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INNovember 6, 2018
Great company, complacent workforce & "so-so" communications.
Discussing and correcting major issues at the last moment hinders qualitative, cost effective quality outcome at times in the last 12+ years. Bottomless piggy bank expectations! So sad with many additive cost issues for the NASA and Air Force communities now-a-days.
Otherwise, a very strong science community.
Pros
Overall Business Atmosphere
Cons
Hidden product manufacturing and test issues leading to questionable future failures.

good pay and great place to learn from experienced oldtimers (quickly disappearing).
Cons
Project cost overruns, Excessive mandatory OT encompassing more human mistakes, Projected profit margins masking quality.

Local management hampered to lead through difficult environment
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INOctober 31, 2018
Harris is still wrestling with the Exelis acquisition and integration that began in 2015. Weekly data requests from corporate headquarters create distraction from ongoing program execution. Current hiring policy creates a challenge to ongoing programs. Hiring special skills to support ongoing programs is a challenge due to limited candidate population, yet Human Resource policy creates barriers. Company is not focused on retaining baby boomers for their experience.
Pros
flex time, corporate technology development investment is above industry average
Cons
long work days, limited number of leaders available at the site, no reimbursement program for fitness center memberships

Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Malabar, FLOctober 16, 2018
No room for advancement too many micro managers. Would be a better work experience if management listened to recommendations from all employees. Great job, great people to work with. Awesome benefits.

Telecommunications Engineer (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKOctober 15, 2018
Although I was very happy to join the Harris Team on modernization for the FAA ASTI program, I did not receive the security I had anticipated. I was a direct contributor to the success of their contract, and was very effective as a test and implementation telecommunications engineer

I enjoyed working with the Implementation Manager, logistics support, configuration management, testing and implementation teams.
Pros
Challenging technical project contributing to public aviation safety.
Cons
Poor management, poor product support by suppliers, unstable delivery schedule.
