      Solid vertical enterprise software business with big company benefits but small company feel

      Pros

      One thing to keep in mind is that Harris is a collection of independent business units, and there is the possibility of a high degree of variability between experiences depending on the business unit one is working in. That said -Great total compensation -Great work-life balance -Flexible work options -Good quality people (from both a technical and interpersonal perspective)

      Cons

      -The company is run in a fairly 'by the numbers way', which can lead to too much focus on short term metrics and a degree of aversiveness to uncertainty. The latter itself is not a problem per se, except to the degree that it can make it difficult to try new things because one needs to convince people of the likelihood of a successful outcome ahead of time, which may stifle new ideas. - I get the impression that many of the business units are viewed as legacy cash cows whose existing customer base and revenue generation are prioritized over taking on newer initiatives (the company has a modus operandi of acquiring companies aggressively which can lead to a lack of incentive to innovate internally, but I suspect this varies by business unit).

      Great organization

      Pros

      As part of the corporate team at Harris, I have great growth opportunities, management that truly cares about that growth, and an amazing work environment. I do care about my work life balance and that is respected, which allows me to be alright with any overtime I choose to put in. I have been with Harris for just under a year now, and although there has been internal movement, I have truly enjoyed my time and been able to grow as a professional.

      Cons

      These factors will vary based on which Business Unit (BU) you are in, but we push for the Harris values across all BU's.
