I have been working at HARMAN

Pros

Good benefits, profit sharing, fun products to work on, fun and creative people, deep discounts on musical and home/car entertainment equipment.

Cons

High turnover, even in sr. management. The best talent comes then leaves through the revolving door. President is very demanding and has no long term vision for the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This place has far more potential than we are reaching. Make it an environment where people want to stay and where talented individuals and middle managers can excel. You have to give people creative freedom or they will become demoralized and perform poorly. Take responsibility for the culture you have created, and stop blaming employees for a systemic leadership problem. Only then will we acheive our potential. Success is about people, not products.

    I have been working at HARMAN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1 in 8 months you get some good work to do that's all good there is rest of 7 months you are only doing Bug Fixing

    Cons

    Harman Pro one of the three business unit of Harman has no money neither for your salary nor for infrastructure which you need for your work.
    Giving a laptop to an employee is like giving you 30% bonus for them what they don't understand that this is a basic requirement. Pro BU's director is from Services company and so is every other team lead. They all still think they are in a services company. They call themselves Product company and then follow Service company culture.
    Work life balance is also not so good.
    Just to give you an idea hike here never goes above 10% for seniors and 15% for fresher. This too only if you are very good at buttering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire HPro BU's director and his chamchas for a start.
    Recruit some good guys with actual leadership skill .
