    I have been working at Harris for less than a year

    Pros

    The salary is pretty competitive.

    Cons

    Harris has offices around the world, but treats employees outside the US as second class. All communications, including from the CEO, assume employees are American. Even mundane things like training videos are restricted to US employees only. Our names in email addresses are appended with "NON-US". International names have accents removed from HR systems, which is insulting and which I've never seen in a large company before. Employee resource groups, like for women and LGBT folk are in the US only. There's no real possibility for advancement for other offices. Upper management also seems disconnected from employees on the ground, resulting in poor project outcomes that were preventable.

    I have been working at Harris full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A lot of top notch colleagues many of whom are kind, bright and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Not much room for movement and salary is also stagnant (an intermediate role pays as much as junior positions at comparable firms). Mgmt is paralyzed by indecision and constant exec turnover, slave to shareholders too. One year they laid off hundreds, pushed back a menial salary increase and increased dividend to shareholders. Stock price is through the roof yet salaries move at a snail's pace.
