I have been working at HARMAN full-time

Pros

talented, passionate people. great benefits. great products.

Cons

it's a big corporation. things move slowly. you have to deal with internal, division, and corporate politics.

Too many rounds of layoffs after Americans have trained their low cost counterpart in India and China.

Little to no push for innovation. corporate push to centralize everything is leading to a homogenization of iconic audio brands.

Continue to push jobs out of the US. CEO has been overheard saying that India is the future center of engineering because American engineers are lazy.

Advice to Management

create a center of innovation and creativity.

maximize the passion of the people who work for you.

embrace smaller micro production facilities for faster prototyping and development

get aggressive and acquire talent and technology that will carry the brands into the future
