    I worked at HARMAN

    Pros

    Harman has a legacy of outstanding audio from famous brands such as JBL and Harman Kardon. It's especially strong in automotive and concert sound.

    Cons

    Cost-cutting may have weakened the quality of the company's products and has definitely led to layoffs and outsourcing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have outstanding people working for you. Let them do their best work, and send the work to outside contractors less.

    I have been working at HARMAN full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are still some of the finest technical folks in the world on the payroll. If you're a VP at any other corporation, it'll be easy to get a job here. Just say, "Oh, your problems aren't so hard. All you need to do is...[Insert imaginary silver bullet here]". They'll pay you a lot of money. It's easy to vacation in your office.

    Cons

    No one in top management knows anything about the audio industry. Company is an ATM and entertainment provider for the CEO and his co-conspirators. Revenue generation by sales at any price and margin management by cost cutting isn't a recipe for success. Age discrimination rampant. Relentless focus on emerging market growth is a disaster waiting to happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take short positions against your own company, if you haven't already.
