I have been working at HARMAN

Pros

There are lots of opportunities for the right talents and right organizational cultural fit. Learning potential in various areas if also great. Famous products and brands.

Cons

Very fast-paced and dynamic environment. Not for the faint-hearted or the laid back. Risk-taking not yet a welcome practice. Innovation could be improved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foster greater product and process innovation. Let people fail some times if they're trying hard and going in the right direction, and if they have the right skills.

    I worked at HARMAN

    Pros

    Most of the roles offer great challenging work. The company pays at the 50th percentile (not too good but not horrible either). It offers somewhat decent benefits+dental plans.

    Cons

    Unless you are personal friends with someone higher up, you will not make it in this company; if you are a female, make sure you review Harman's female #s as it relates to leadership before you make a decision about joining the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be extremely beneficial for Harman's senior management to participate in leadership development courses or executive MBA. The management is out of touch with recent management techniques and styles. The company has amazing products because of brilliant engineers however, they have completely lost the loyalty of their best employees and will soon lose their competitive edge on product innovations.
