    I have been working at Harris Computer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Be part of a small, dynamic startup organization within a stable, successful parent company. Lots of remote work opportunities among many divisions.

    Cons

    Very focused on financial metrics, sometimes at the expense of innovation, but that culture is changing.

    Advice to Management

    Relax a bit on the financial metrics. You have a lot of amazing, talented people that will help drive growth and build an enduring organization. Empower them to do so.

    Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Niagara Falls, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Harris Computer (Niagara Falls, NY (US)) in June-2016.

    Interview

    After applying online, I got a call from the hiring manager the very next day and quickly scheduled an interview at the end of the week. I dressed business casual (no tie) and even came a little late. My interviewer didn't seem to mind. Questions were more about my critical thinking skills, though technical skills and job history were covered. I was invited to a second interview a week later which was little more than a formality and told I pretty much had the job. There was a holiday weekend between the second interview and the job offer, so if it hadn't been for that, the whole process might have taken three weeks between applying and starting the job.
