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

Disapproves of CEO

I worked at HARMAN full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fairly 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

Cons

IT 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 Management

Invest 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

    I worked at HARMAN full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people were great and that really made a difference. Solid commitment to the brands from top management down. Learned a great deal when given the opportunity to work with VP's. Human Resources was always very friendly and open even when I decided to pursue another career opportunity. All vacation was paid out and HR even let me keep my phone for a few extra days until I started my new job.

    Cons

    Nothing specific...there are problems and issues at every company.

    Advice to Management

    Offer or give the opportunity of harder and challenging projects/accounts to people looking/wanting to work more. Also, I always learned a great deal when I had the opportunity to be a part of senior management meetings where VP's could offer advice, knowledge or expertise. You could learn a lot just by watching and listening. Maybe include people who want to learn more, gain more experience, etc. in meeting, situations, or just some one on one time with the people who are on a succession plan.
