Former Employee - DSP Firmware Engineer
Former Employee - DSP Firmware Engineer

I worked at Harmonic as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Products are audio/video encoding and decoding boxes used in professional broadcast environment. Development facilities for engineers are better than average including a excellent audio/visual lab. Had weekly project status review with hardware engineering group in Israel and firmware group in San Jose.

Cons

Project management seemed a unorganized and there was no system engineering group at San Jose office. Product documentation about average, lots of reverse engineering time required to upgrade existing product line to new features. No written interface specifications at either the physical layer or HDLC layer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to add System Engineering group to development detailed systems engineering specifications, system integration, and system testing for both hardware, software, and firmware.
