    Pros

    Some Harman divisions still have amazing engineers and products. There is still a connection to an amazing heritage, and the opportunity to work on advanced projects.

    Cons

    More and more of the work is being moved to China and India, and the Harman heritage and tribal knowledge is at risk of being lost forever.

    Advice to Management

    Throw away the Neutron Jack management book and look ahead more than 1 quarter at a time.

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, good work experience

    Cons

    Poor management, constant arguing amongst managers and employees, managers will give you good reviews and then tell the opposite to management, VP of this location is the most unprofessional person I have ever met. Constant foul language and hand slamming on tables during meetings

    Advice to Management

    Quit letting managers take 3 hour lunches while they only put in 6 hour days, Make managers perform and complete goals just like employees, allow employees to suggest ideas to improve the company
