The Devil You Know

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at HARMAN International full-time

Prostalented, passionate people. great benefits. great products.

Consit's a big corporation. things move slowly. you have to deal with internal, division, and corporate politics.

Too many rounds of layoffs after Americans have trained their low cost counterpart in India and China.

Little to no push for innovation. corporate push to centralize everything is leading to a homogenization of iconic audio brands.

Continue to push jobs out of the US. CEO has been overheard saying that India is the future center of engineering because American engineers are lazy.

Advice to Senior Managementcreate a center of innovation and creativity.

maximize the passion of the people who work for you.

embrace smaller micro production facilities for faster prototyping and development

get aggressive and acquire talent and technology that will carry the brands into the future

The company's bosses will probably make the company prosperous, but they'll sacrifice employees to do it.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at HARMAN International

ProsHarman has a legacy of outstanding audio from famous brands such as JBL and Harman Kardon. It's especially strong in automotive and concert sound.

ConsCost-cutting may have weakened the quality of the company's products and has definitely led to layoffs and outsourcing.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have outstanding people working for you. Let them do their best work, and send the work to outside contractors less.
