    I worked at HARMAN full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can get discounted electronics (refurbished sometimes).

    Cons

    Cost cutting of US work force for India. They have let go of all the good engineers and scramble when projects the engineers were working on suddenly go into crisis. Poor executive management that needs pinches pennies on individual contributors but fly half way around the world for a "meeting" . Poor company wide organization. Executives lead through fear - if you don't play ball or drink the Kool-aid then don't bother coming to work. CEO makes blind decisions and has blatantly lied in the press twice.

    Advice to Management

    Let CEO go asap and clean house.

    "The company's bosses will probably make the company prosperous, but they'll sacrifice employees to do it."

    Pros

    Harman has a legacy of outstanding audio from famous brands such as JBL and Harman Kardon. It's especially strong in automotive and concert sound.

    Cons

    Cost-cutting may have weakened the quality of the company's products and has definitely led to layoffs and outsourcing.

    Advice to Management

    You have outstanding people working for you. Let them do their best work, and send the work to outside contractors less.
