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

    Pros

    Harris has been instrumental in my growth as a leader, helping me to further my professional career. The atmosphere is unique, because you still have that "family" feel, even though Harris is a fairly large corporation, and the environment, leadership and core values Harris holds itself accountable to are by far what make it what I would consider the BEST place to work. I am 100% remote/virtual, as is the rest of the team in our division, and we all still feel a part of the "bigger picture." Compensation isn't always comparable to other companies in the same/similar industries, but there is a fair and generous benefits package, annual bonuses, and the potential for quarterly merit bonuses, based on performance.

    Interview

    Straight Forward. Took about 1 month with coordination. The Project Manager reached out me about my resume and spoke about 45 min. Then they flew me out to meet the VP and Director of the team. Background check and references and then come aboard !
