    I worked at Harmonic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and solid technology. The company's encoder technology is second to none in the broadcast industry.

    Cons

    Upper management has lost touch with what is going in in the company and industry. Strategy is lacking, and the rules for doing business seem to change on a weekly basis. Customer support issues are out of control at times, and customer frustration is high with support (except for the top 5 or so customers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the culture within the company Before you lose all momentum and business advantage. The employees in general are so "un-empowered" that you cannot find anyone to take responsibility for anything. This goes all the way up to product manager level.
