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

    Pros

    Harris promotes a culture of providing employees with diverse opportunities for a career path that fits their aspirations and interests. I've played a number of roles along my long and exciting journey and thoroughly enjoyed in each of those roles. Harris is a firm believer of building future leaders from within. The number of vertical markets, products and technology stacks promotes a vibrant ecosystem of cutting edge opportunities. Looking forward to my continued growth within the organization.

    Cons

    Harris does look for highly motivated individuals who are not averse to continuously learn and improve.

    Advice to Management

    Continue empowering and investing in people.

    I have been working at Harris Computer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a great place to work if your a slacker and don't take your job seriously or care about your work life balance and simply need a pay check. Accountability and quality is very low so it's easy to simply do some stuff to get by while other skilled employees muddle through to patch things over.

    Cons

    Inexperience is rampant and staff training is pretty much none existent. Anyone decent gives up and leaves once they are broken and demoralized from the work load or they have conceded that the pay will never amount to anything decent compared with other companies. Many a coworker is more concerned with their social day than work.

    Advice to Management

    Step up and stop pretending to care. Stop telling us how great the company is when you're staff are unhappy and you're customers are dissatisfied too. Hire some true leaders to guide us so we can make the company great through pride of work and client feedback and by us actually wanting to be there.

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

    Pros

    - Business units have a lot of flexibility
    - Harris management isn't disconnected. They're there to help us and are interested in what we do (in addition to our financial numbers)
    - Everyone is held accountable
    - Success is shared
    - Jeff Bender puts more focus on growth in addition to EBITDA, which will help with the creation of organic long term value
    - Good training opportunities
    - Good summits held to meet other business units, share our knowledge and find synergies
    - Good salary and insurance plan
    - Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Not much negative to say. It's feasible but more difficult to implement a SaaS oriented pricing model (even if it sometimes has the highest EVA) as this has an impact on the shorter term revenue and year-end numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
