      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!

      Pros

      Not much to be honest.

      Cons

      A lot of upper management is about pomp and ego. A lot of talk with little to no action. Intelligent and goal-oriented people will become bored easily and will leave because of lack of support.

      Pros

      If you are hard working and ambitious, Harris is a great company. There are endless opportunities to gain experience and grow.

      Cons

      If its all about the money, Harris may not be the place for you. They pay okay but not at the high end of the pay scale.
