What is the retirement plan like at Harris Computer?

Pros

Good Benefits, except 401K that is non existent pretty much.

Cons

This is large company, consisted of many business units. One's experience really depends on the particular BU management. Mine was not that great (to say the least). Management has no idea how to run the software shop, no clue on how to preserve the knowledge and the talent they accrue. When numbers don't add up at the end of the quarter ... there is only one solution ... lay offs. Also there is no bonus or merit increase if you are not in management.

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.
