Pros

Brands, Products history, Compensation and benefits

Cons

Dictatorial work culture with management having a factory culture mindset. Respect for the employees is absolutely lacking and people are in for a shock when you join for the Brand name but find high misuse of power in the top management with sycophancy and crude treatment of employees. Negative bureaucracy. Technology awareness is bleak at the top and so is the ability to do business in the market. Innovation is impossible at this center.

Advice to Management

Value employees. Empowerment in the centers can be misused to the core. Though a big global org, it is a small start up in the country. Management arrogance will lose the talent necessary for a budding center. Technology team is certainly questionable for not having technical depth.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Cool company if they stuck to what they know.
    Great sounding products, amps, speakers and car audio.
    Could retake their proper place as best in class, if...

    Cons

    Constant change of management after the Harman family was removed.
    A puppy attention span
    Work hard, do job well, and don't rock the boat

    Advice to Management

    This company still makes some of the best sounding products in the world, but too bad it can not get out of its own way. You forgot what made the company great, its people. It's people made the technology, it's people had the passion, it's people made the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They still have a pretty good product and some of the most innovative engineers in the business.
    A good place to gain knowledge from the pros.

    Cons

    Management is more concerned with the bottom line than people or an excellent product.
    Management bonuses continue to go up for decisions that create havoc for employees.

    Advice to Management

    There is no need to give advice because they already have their own agenda
