One of the most depressing places you can imagine spending your waking life

Engineer (Current Employee)
Northridge, CA

I have been working at HARMAN International

Pros- Sometimes interesting projects
- being in Southern California obviously has its perks
- working with talented people in the audio industry

Cons- Incredibly low employee moral
- Low pay compared to other companies
- hideously drab and uninspiring office building
- lack of management competence
- zero room for growth
- overall sense of worthlessness instilled in employees from management

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees; tame down the cost cutting measures; understand what our core competencies are and leverage them; decorate the office a little bit

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
