Harman has figured out how to draw blood from a stone - everyone is overworked!

Director (Former Employee)
Northridge, CA

ProsFairly competitive pay
Great sounding product
Some people who have been in the industry for a very long time and new Harman in the good old days

ConsIT infrastructure is among the worst I've ever seen
Complete lack of resources
- Leads to a finger pointing, non-cooperative work environment
- Incredibly high amount of office politics
Too much outsourcing to India and China

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in IT infrastructure and top IT talent
Start investing for the future (3-5 years out), and not just for the coming fiscal quarter-end. Being so cheap is hurting Harman's long term prospects for market dominance

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
