Harris Corporation Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Harris Corporation was an American technology company, defense contractor, and information technology services provider that produced wireless equipment, tactical radios, electronic systems, night vision equipment and both terrestrial and spaceborne antennas for use in the government, defense and commercial sectors. They specialized in surveillance solutions, microwave weaponry, and electronic warfare. In 2019, it merged with L3 Technologies to form L3Harris Technologies. Headquartered in Melbourne, Florida, the company had approximately $7 billion of annual revenue. It was the largest private-sector employer in Brevard County, Florida (approximately 6,000). The company was the parent of Intersil (Harris Semiconductor). In 2016, Harris was named one of the top hundred federal contractors by Defense News. In January 2015, Wired Magazine ranked Harris Corporation—tied with U.S. Marshals Service—as the number two threat to privacy and communications on the Internet.

An employee had this to say in a review, "Top Management will not show you any respect. High turnover rate...ask why engineers are leaving in droves. Director is not friendly and will yell at you because he thinks he is God. Take a lower job elsewhere you will be happier.Before the Pandemic, I've heard rumors from former L3 employees that they put you on Furlough when events happen such as contracts ending, funding issues or no work. It happened to me. Let me tell you that they put you on it for a long time. Numerous emails from me asking when will I go back to work or when will they "pull the plug" on my employment. Its all a waiting game. As for work, our office space is literally a small storage room closet with four guys in it with an onsite government rep sitting with us who is very vulgar most of the time."


Tell the world why Harris Corporation sucks!

Former Employee - Technician says

"Unfriendly work environment unless your are "in the club""

Former Employee (Current Employee) says

"Great people work here. Managers, not so much..Layoffs, because they say Covid-19 has affected the company. .It's the "do-as-I-say", "not-as-I-do" club. Management will always throw you under the bus to save themselves. Cons: Management"

Senior Specialist Design Engineer (Former Employee) says

"Absolutely toxic work environment if you are an experienced engineer. They do very well by straight out of school employees but if you are experienced they don't have a clue what to do with you and you will always be at fault. Always. They will fire you quicker than you can say your name. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this campus."

Sr. Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) says

"Worst company in the world to work for. They don’t value their employees. I worked my tail off for them and all they did was complain. I leave and work for the competitor and life is exactly how it is supposed to be."

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) says

"I was lucky to be in a good team but once you need the support of management you soon realize that they are self centered and only looking out for themselves Cons: long hours"

Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) says

"Working at Harris L3, Land Mobile Radio, is terrible. The company doesn’t support initiatives to be competitive in this business. The distribution model is choking the business. They have no idea how to go to market and win new opportunities. Leadership at the management level is lacking understanding of how to solution sell LMR. This is one of the worst companies to work for. STAY AWAY. Cons: Horrible place to work"

Maintenance Helper (Former Employee) says

"they want over qualify people for very low pay to work here. The company is a joke don't waste your time with this place. You would be better off going to a temp agencies before this place Cons: low pay"

Aircraft Mechanic (Former Employee) says

"Whatever you do at L3, you're probably doing it totally wrong. The management expects absolute perfection, which doesn't exist. If your supervisor isn't screaming, then it's QC, or the DCMA. No support system in place, and 5 million regulations. I have over 25 years experience, and was treated as a fresh A&P mechanic. The only reason I lasted as long as I did was to get my Secret Clearance. Also, be aware of the union. Take my advice, just don't work here. Awful. Cons: too many to list."

Engineering Manager (Former Employee) says

"Top Management will not show you any respect. High turnover rate...ask why engineers are leaving in droves. Director is not friendly and will yell at you because he thinks he is God. Take a lower job elsewhere you will be happier. Cons: GM and Director are really bad there"

Sr. Network Analyst (Current Employee) says

"This company will give raises in the average amount of 1.5% a year and there is severe favortism and polotics to get that. There is no profit sharing at this compnay and the insurance is nearly highway robbery."

Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) says

"Your typical 9-5 cubicle grind where everyone isn't really happy or talking to each other. Very little to learn and the work itself was boring. The people there weren't as motivated as you would hope coming into work."

Aircraft Mechanic B-Electrician (Current Employee) says

"Poor work environment due to poor management. Does not reward employees for going above and beyond on jobs performed. Health insurance is not best either. Union is not the best either. Otherwise the pay isn't bad for the area, but I would look elsewhere first."

Lead (Former Employee) says

"The management is all about themselves at one point in time they were all for the people That isn’t the case anymore sad to say kdi was a good place to work"


"People are thrown into management with no knowledge of what the people they manage do. The rules are often manipulated to favor the people in charge and employees are often asked to do things that are borderline unethical."

Field Service Technician (Former Employee) says

"This company like many others dealing with EDS contracts are a slave to the prime. Unrealistic goals, metrics and management with no backbone to stand up for you. Really this career needs to be union, prime could use a good strike to deal with. But the morons that run the prime are the same morons nobody could stand when they worked for OEM’s. Glad I got out of this shock and awe/reactive only career"

None of your business (Former Employee) says

"Things were great until the merger. Stay away from this place as all of the senior managers have been laid off. Do not apply to any jobs here as HR is dishonest and does not have your back."

Director Business Development (Current Employee) says

"Challenging Environment"

Eletromechanical Technician (Former Employee) says

"It would be a good place to work but she got a play their game if they don't like you they get rid of you trust me I was out on work with his calm for surgery on the foot came back 4 months later they lay me all that's not a good place to work for"

Worker (Former Employee) says

"One of the worst places you can work for. If you don't mind swimming in ink, drowning in water and having a screaming roar from the machines the entire time. Managers absolutely disrespects employees/temps with obscenities or throwing things if perfection is not achieved immediately. High turnover rate. Cons: Everything"

I test (Former Employee) says

"It’s shift against shift. Cons: Management, pay, moral, building is so old"

Budget Analyst (Former Employee) says

"Management could careless about employees there is no work life balance and your job is always being threatened. There are few willing to do a good job"

Half full says

"Opportunities are abundant because after 20 years, it operates like a \'start-up\' trying to figure out how to do common procedures. If you\'re young, a new grad, naive, or desperate, and need a clearance go for it. If you\'re in at the Director level and up, your set for life. Hats off to sales and if the money keeps rolling in, why change. Replacements are a dime a dozen. 50% of your job is training replacements."
