    Soulless Bloodsucking Corporation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI am not stuck here forever

    ConsThe CEO is a sociopath. He says "stay paranoid" in almost every corporate newsletter her sends out and uses fear tactics to motivate employees. I feel like I live inside of a Dilbert cartoon - it truly is that ridiculous. If you are smart and talented please stay away from this company, they will chew you up and spit you out. Harman will not be around in the long term because they only care about short term growth - everything is smoke and mirrors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou already sold your soul to Satan if you are anything above a Director level - Directors are yes men. Either grow a backbone or get another job. Stop this insane corruption.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
