Employee Review

    They actually want their employees to succeed!

    Pros

    They have amazing development plans for employees interested in moving up or just expanding their knowledge. The positive encouragement and coaching has allowed me to move up from an entry level position to Director level within 2 years. You can go as far as you want as long as you put in the effort! They have a proven business plan. Our business unit was struggling before Harris came in. Within a year we were one of the most profitable units.

    Cons

    Unfortunately a reality of being acquired means the business is assessed with the goal of making it profitable (not re-selling it). Changes comes with this assessment of course. If you can weather the initial flurry of adjustments it's only upwards from there!

    This company is not employee friendly at all.

    Pros

    Good health insurance plan and strong use of technology.

    Cons

    The entire Harris strategy is to buy (usually under-performing) companies with recurring revenue streams and milk them until the cash flow dries up. Unfortunately, that typically means squeezing out as many costs as they can. In their business, the largest cost is human capital, hence the inherent lack of job security in this model. Even if you are needed today, you never know when the cash flow will dry up and your job along with it - because Harris management are used to milking companies, not growing them. That's why almost every job there is a dead end job. Recently, since they are running out of acquisition targets, they've decided to grow the businesses they acquire, but for some strange reason all of their business success metrics are still focused short-term profit, instead of long-term growth. That sends a mixed message to the staff and the market that Harris wants long term growth, but lacks the patience to get there.
