  1. good place to work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Harman Music Group full-time

    Pros

    Some of the coolest people in the world work here and much of the work is interesting.

    Cons

    It's developing a large corporate mentality. Decisions are made that deeply impact your work and career with little or no input from the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shooting from the hip on big, sweeping decisions and ask the people who've worked in this industry and environment for years what the implications of these decisions might be.


  3. It is a great company to work for.

    I worked at Harman Music Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great job if you are upper management.

    Cons

    Not too great for those that worked hard for many, many years!

    Advice to Management

    Should have been more fair to the workers producing your product, and making all of the money.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Harman Music Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good employee discounts for company audio products! In general, employees are treated decently in terms of salary, benefits, accommodation of personal emergencies, etc. Unique Halloween tradition is family-friendly.

    Cons

    Somewhat behind the times in procedures, development tools, attitudes. Slow product development – meaning new products are always a generation or two behind the competition. There may never be a breakthrough "disruptive innovation" from this design group. Employees are not much interested in personal improvement. (Few take graduate studies, for example). Employees settle into comfortable jobs with limited horizons and collect their paychecks. That's about all. Some managers tend to "micromanage". There is little synergy with other Harman Design Groups around the world.

    Advice to Management

    The Sandy Design Group could continue a decade longer with minor product design improvements, but there is no will to reach for a revolutionary new product. This would require a radical change in Management attitude and perhaps a new set of employees.

    I worked at Harman Music Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people were really nice, everywhere from management to warehouse workers. Even as an intern I received benefits including dental/medical.

    Cons

    The employees were all afraid of getting laid off. Upper management, senior engineers, and lower level people were all on the chopping block. Also as an intern, I really just did paperwork for the engineers. Sure I did some soldering and debugging, but it was not the learning experience I had hoped for.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put the fear of God into your solid employees.
