Pros

You like living in the San Fernando Valley (but who does?). Decent discounts on employee purchase of company product.

Cons

Short sighted management. Management is all from outside Harman. Little or no inside promotion and recognition. Careers are okay if you are content doing the same job forever (ridiculous!)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Once free cash flow is restored to a reasonable level, try 8 plus percent of gross, consider paying a high dividend...maybe four percent to attract income investors. The baby boomer generation will soon reward the companies that can pay a reliable and consistent dividend.

    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.
