    Brand reputations being ruined by cost-cutting and cheap labor. Engineers are managers, not engineers.

    I worked at HARMAN (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Work hours reasonable.

    Cons

    Worked as an engineer at Harman for over 12 years. Went from designing great products in the 90's and early 2000's to overseeing the design of crap product by employees in low-wage countries. The current management ('08 to present) is doing everything & everything to show short term success & profitability at the expense of competency and quality. It won't be long until the formerly prestigious brands mean nothing to people (frankly the cats already out of the bag as the general consuming public is very informed these days). If you want to work as an underpaid engineer only to manage incompetent engineers overseas this jobs for you.

    Workplace attitude was terrible. Mostly because they laid off hundreds of employees and left a skeleton crew and acted like nothing was happening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing is clueless on technology. Engineers should have input on the 5-year product roadmap. As engineers, no matter how much we tried to innovate, no one listened. Research was fruitless. Products were only spec'd in response to product innovation from competitors.

    It's a big company, and profitability rules all, but they need to look long-term. But they're not. The company is too big. It's all about the next 'quarter', and trying to convince investors that they're profitable. Senior management will pay themselves hefty salaries and then move on to their next venture... leaving Harman in the dust.
