    I have been working at HARMAN full-time

    Pros

    Company is great at cost-cutting Significant growth since 2008 Strong presence in automotive industry Discount on products

    Cons

    Company culture is depressing Too many layers of management More politics than Capitol Hill Awful work/life balance Everything is outsourced Terrible performance review system

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourself. Inspire and motivate. Stop wasting money. Allow 360 performance reviews on Directors and above. Stop hiring so many senior executives and hire some real help.

    I worked at HARMAN full-time

    Pros

    The company is well-positioned in most markets in which it competes. It has interesting, high-quality products. The company is committed to growth and is taking actions, such as acquisitions, to achieve growth.

    Cons

    Company employees need to be more aware of company policies and processes. Policies and processes are often not followed, Many employees are overburdened as a result of under-staffing and lack of standardization of policies and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Educate employees about company policies and processes and enforce those policies and processes. Add additional staff.

    Pros

    Good product, good benefits, great company when it was locally managed. Good employee base, good community involvement. Forward thinking in a lot of areas. Upward mobile company

    I have been working at HARMAN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a progressive and profitable organization. Harman seems to be doing well on its top line and they have a few good products out there.

    Cons

    There is almost no collaboration amongst the different business and every business functions as an independent unit.
