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

    Pros

    I am quite impressed with Harris since starting employment here a few years ago. They encourage and foster an environment rich with opportunity and growth for all hard working employees. They adhere to 10 core values and this is clearly demonstrated on a day to day basis with all employees and at every level of management. There is no question about the strength and viability of the company as a whole with how they run the business. It is solid from the ground up both financially and in leadership. I'm thrilled to be an employee of Harris and look forward to my career path as the company grows and succeeds now and well into the future!

    Cons

    Harris has a use it or lose it vacation policy. Some people view this in a positive way in that Harris encourages work/life balance. Harris wants us to take vacation and enjoy life outside of work - work hard/play hard!

    Advice to Management

    The executive level of management is approachable and encourages all employees, at every level, to communicate with them. This demonstrates how grounded and humble they are. I hope this is never lost even as the company grows both in success and as more employees join our ranks.

    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 !
