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

    Pros

    A great tradition of high end audio system. Respected by audiophiles worldwide. Employees very dedicated and cohesive, overall.

    Cons

    Poor marketing efforts. They rely on reputation and word of mouth to extend brands. BOSE and Beats out-market Harman with mailings, print ads, web ads and broadcast commercials.
    Senior management determined to outsource all functions to China and India, Many lay offs in the US and Europe. Senior management rewards themselves with large bonuses while their products list numerous defects and the supply chain dynamics deliver damaged packages. Employees nervous about their futures within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring jobs back to USA, especially engineering and manufacturing. Spend on marketing and operations so most products don't sit on shelves without recognition or visible box damage. Apply stricter quality controls in manufacturing to avoid releasing defective products.

    Pros

    located in small town so they got great tax breaks off the backs of the residents and a pool of cheap labor

    Cons

    to many to mention but you will not have a life unless you work management. 20 days on 1 day off. no concern for people, families, only profits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat employees like humans not lab rats
