    I have been working at Harris Computer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Harris truly expresses its values in the relationship between staff, management, and to those outside of the company. Great opportunities for growth and development and ongoing learning. Provided a voice to make change and impact for the future. Remote working is amazing and feels more connected than I ever did working in a co-locates environment. Blown away by the quality and depth of the people I get to work with every day. Looking forward to the journey ahead. Feel very thankful.

    Cons

    None really at this point

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Solidify Onboarding process. Continue to develop processes for project management that produce quality results - to take a lean perspective to save time and money and provide a better overall perspective of where and what and by whom.
