I worked at HARMAN full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
In 2009/2010 I would have give Harman 4 or 5 stars.
The company *was* good to work for before Sidney Harman died - plenty on training and encouragement, quality & performance of the products was paramount.
Unfortunately this very quickly disappeared once the company's founder passed away, and the current CEO was give free reign.Cons
Upper management - especially the uppermost management.
The CEO's knee jerk reaction to a profits warning in late 2012 resulted in the majority of R&D talent of the organisation being stripped away to "save cost" and artificially increase profits.
European Engineers and technicians with decades of experience were turfed out, with the master-plan of replacing them with inexperienced Chinese engineers
This will enable a temporary increase in dividends for the shareholders over the next couple of years - this apparent turnaround is, of course, being spun as the genius of the CEO - NOT SO!
My prediction is that the CEO will be surreptitiously selling off his shares over the next 18 months or so - capitalizing on the artificial inflation of the share price, before the removal of the organizations life blood starts to tell.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Grow some, and stop blindly agreeing with CEO!
I give the company 2, maybe 3 years before large sections get sold off - no doubt resulting in some sort of personal profit for the upper management.Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO
