Does Harris Computer give bereavement leave?

Pros

Benefits are quite good Vacation: 3 weeks after 1 year and 4 weeks after 3 full years working in their calendar year. 5 Personal days, bereavement days available upon manager's discretion Work from home sometimes. (ask for laptop to make it easier to work from home) Yearly corporate day (get together with all corporate staff with activities and party). CFO (new guy who started in late 2016 seems good)

Cons

Salary caps (a/r & a/p clerks $35k-40k). This is low compared to a lot of other companies. Can be quite noisy in certain places of the office especially in the a/r & a/p section where you are up to 32 people working in cubicles in the same area. Some people don't respect others and are always loud. Possibility to move up but limited space depending on which department you work in. Some business units are poorly managed. They would rather hire cheaply than give a good employee a salary increase. (tried twice and got max pay in my position only the 1st time after working more than 4 years here) CEO (not very friendly)

Advice to Management

Raise your salary caps. You keep talking at every corporate event how much more you made since the previous year, but employees don't see any of it for most staff. Offer more to keep employees who've been there long instead of always hire cheap, new staff. This doesn't help the business units to be efficient. Hence why there is a lot of turnover. Allow staff and maybe even encourage staff to work from home when the job is possible to do from home. I was able to do it and my work never deteriorated. Promote more social activities to let the office get to know each other more.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Harris Computer?

Pros

As part of the corporate team at Harris, I have great growth opportunities, management that truly cares about that growth, and an amazing work environment. I do care about my work life balance and that is respected, which allows me to be alright with any overtime I choose to put in. I have been with Harris for just under a year now, and although there has been internal movement, I have truly enjoyed my time and been able to grow as a professional.

Cons

These factors will vary based on which Business Unit (BU) you are in, but we push for the Harris values across all BU's.

Advice to Management

Keep it up and make sure you continue to grow your loyal employees.

Does Harris Computer have any mentoring programs?

Pros

- Excellent scope of work considering the amount of experience needed. Got exposed to loads of corporate accounting and progressed into a more mid-level role with no designations - Friday lunches - Family friendly, flexible work hours

Cons

- Pay is well below market levels - Favoritism aimed towards more mid/senior management - No organic growth. Growth achieved through buying out smaller companies and gutting them - No mentorship for improvement, have to do what feels like stepping on toes to try and get new work/guidance

Advice to Management

Look at your pay scales. Even increasing base salaries by $5k would do wonders for lowering turnover and getting more out of employees.

- No mentorship for improvement, have to do what feels like stepping on toes to try and get new work/guidance
