I worked at Harmonic

Pros

Since Harmonic designs their own hardware, the are opportunites for all different types of programming. From device drivers to application level and some JAVA/GUI work.

Cons

Some of the worst mid-level management I've ever seen. But I now see that the managers I disapproved are gone now.

    Pros

    The pay is fare, health insurance is not bad, stock purchase plan is good, location is good. woking enviroment is good

    Cons

    too much politics , especially in Operation department. when something happened. no one want to look into the detail. the people got blamed never got a chance to explain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try you best to keep all valuable efficient engineer, not only in R&D. Keep one fact in mind. the more you do, the bigger chance you will make mistake. for those efficient engineers who takes a lot of responsibity ussaully get the most blame in operation department. compare too examples,
    one engneer got 10 thing done but just made a little political mistake with another engineer get only one thing done and did not make mistake

    No opinion of CEO
