Windows Systems Administrator at Harris Corp.
in Melbourne, FL

What do you like about working at Harris Corp.?

"There are a lot of great people in the rank-and-file."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't bother unless you want to be a lemming and agree with your management all the time--even when they're pathetically wrong. If you do seek a position at Harris, be very, very careful about which team and/or business unit you will be working in. Most of the managers are bullies, though there are a few good ones out there--and they aren't universally loved by the other managers."

What don't you like about working at Harris Corp.?

"Very long working hours: 60-100 hours per week. Understaffed; they're too cheap to hire more employees to help achieve a better balance. High-stress and high-demand; no, everything is not a number one priority because something still has to be done first, which means that something has to be done last; please don't call me every 15 minutes for a status update; really, I'll call you when the status changes, so leave me alone and let me do my job. Managers are not held accountable for their own poor decisions and/or lack of decisive action; think before you react; make a decision and stand by it; cease the disciplinarian motivation because it doesn't work very well and only serves to destroy morale; stop playing the blame game; if a mistake is made or something bad happens due to unforeseen circumstances or circumstances beyond your control; don't throw people under the bus because you make them work all day, then work all night, then be there bright and early to work all day again, and then they make a mistake they normally wouldn't have. Retrain your HR department staff to appropriately handle unethical behavior; don't make someone feel like it's their own fault when they are sexually harassed; don't allow managers to intimidate and threaten their staff; don't counsel employees without their knowledge only so they can find out about it later; revamp your performance review procedures and policies to accurately reflect employee performance rather than a manager's personal dislike."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Have an open-door policy. Improve communications between management and the employees. Put a halt to the intimidation tactics and crack down on managers who play the blame game. Make managers accountable for the performance of their teams/business units. Review the HR policies."
