Pros

Very flexible work schedule. Competent coworkers. Business wins are going well. Cool products to work on. Good discounts on Harman products.

Cons

Poor training of new technology when it is rolled out to new projects. Very focused on growth in low cost countries, instead of US growth.

Advice to Management

Put more effort on internal mentoring and training, particularly when new projects with new technologies are being rolled out. Establish mentoring programs for young / inexperienced engineers.

    Incompetent employees and managers are everywhere. Management cannot recognize or fix known broken systems or processes. Low performing employees can flourish at Harman.

    "Harman International Review"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The new management team recognizes the challenges ahead and is positioning the company to face them squarely. The work-life balance is highly encouraged and the work environment is a casual one.

    Cons

    The company is not technology driven. It lags behind our competitive companies because of lack of innovation. Marketing is always afraid to make bold decisions due to "risks" and the products put out on the market tend to become a "me too" product.

    Advice to Management

    Let's return to the engineering roots that this company was founded upon. Form strategic relations with partners, cultivate engineering minds and leverage the brand names we have developed to differentiate Harman from the rest of the market.
