    Pros

    Great employees that help one another.

    Cons

    Under Harris Corporation, the HR department went from so-so to terrible. They don't have a clue on what employees do in the company.
    Company was making large profits and decided to layoff hundred-plus employees in the last six months.
    Mass layoff in March 2012 in Houston and Aberdeen, Scotland left entire work areas not being done anymore or department managers. This has weakened the company and stalled customer projects indefinitely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Poorly trained executive management in Houston and Fairfax, Va. Virginia personnel are so removed to the realities of everyday work in Houston and Lafayette.
    Clueless executive management personnel in Melbourne, Fla., don't know how to operate an energy services supplier company. They are stuck in the federal government arena and don't know how to respond to commercial energy clients.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Harris has decent benefits for their employees. Co-workers made a nice work environment. Harris gave the ability to work in a team setting to solve problems.

    Cons

    Low salary in comparison to competing companies. Less qualified untrained employees starting with a higher salaries than current employees. Management changed several times. Disliked managements ability in addressing employee concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees concerns. Competitive salaries. Have management less concerned with their year end bonus and more in line with company policy and employee concerns.
