Pros

Fun projects and products to work on. Pay is competitive. Freedom to work on a variety of products / projects. Easy to shine as a top performer.

Cons

Incompetent employees and managers are everywhere. Management cannot recognize or fix known broken systems or processes. Low performing employees can flourish at Harman.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to build a competent and competitive organization.

    Pros

    The new management team recognizes the challenges ahead and is positioning the company to face them squarely. The work-life balance is highly encouraged and the work environment is a casual one.

    Cons

    The company is not technology driven. It lags behind our competitive companies because of lack of innovation. Marketing is always afraid to make bold decisions due to "risks" and the products put out on the market tend to become a "me too" product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's return to the engineering roots that this company was founded upon. Form strategic relations with partners, cultivate engineering minds and leverage the brand names we have developed to differentiate Harman from the rest of the market.

    Good company, but size is concern to achieve good results.

    Pros

    Good technology firm in the Detroit area. They are located where they need to be around the world to do business with their customers. The global leadership is strong within the business units, but they don't seem to work together at all. The senior management seemed to communicate to their teams enough.

    Cons

    Very big company that is spread around the world. The engineering teams are mostly in Europe, but the Sales and Marketing teams are in the USA. Information is sometimes very difficult to find within the company. There is a cultural difference between the EU and US teams that was a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to bring the global teams together more ofern
