Work-life balance is achievable. We offer a variety of benefits to help you live a healthy and balanced life, which you can view here. But we view work-life balance as more than having access to a good benefits package. As a firm, we are committed to doing the best for our clients — and that commitment extends to our employees. Ours is a culture of respect toward one another. One of the ways we express that is by supporting you with the processes and tools you need to work as seamlessly and effectively as possible.

You can make a difference from day one. Each Harris employee has an opportunity to make a difference, grow his or her career, and collaborate with peers who are equally passionate about their work. This is not an office of silos. We all work together to create value for our clients and ourselves.

We are dedicated to getting the job done for our clients. It’s our culture as a company of outstanding individuals to bring our individual talents and skills to bear each day to create results for our clients.

We are stronger together. Harris is committed to the continuous development of our culture, which is built on the premise of equity that encourages and embraces our employees’ differences.

Access to Leadership

Harris employees have a high degree of exposure and opportunity. Our teams are not siloed, which allows us to work across departments with a wide variety of expertise.

We Feed More than Curiosity

Whether it’s coming together after hours to volunteer for a common cause, taking to the fields to play together in a summer softball league, or sharing personal stories and challenges at our daily free lunch, we are — first and foremost — peers. It’s through our daily interactions that we find opportunities to learn from one another’s disciplines, gain exposure to projects that we may be able to contribute to and solicit input from others based on their experiences.

Inspiring Perspectives

From views of Chicago’s lakefront and skyline to a thoughtfully designed workspace, our work environment supports an open view of the world at large.

—Tyler Borzak, Client Relationship Manager, Institutional Client Service

Coming out of college, it was important for me to work at a company where my coworkers would challenge, inspire and help me become a better investor. Harris provides that. The amount of responsibility the firm gives its youngest employees is virtually unmatched in the industry. I know my ideas can have an impact on the portfolios.

—Katherine Gerdes, Research Associate

Our emerging and evolving leaders program allows me to further develop my skills and make a long-term investment in my future.

—Danny Nicholas, CFA, Client Portfolio Manager
