    Pros

    The are not many good reasons to work here.if you stay in the company for to long there may be chances of growth

    Cons

    No work life balance. Employees are expected to work during weekends. Hike is not as per one's effort or performance. Senior management is really poor.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well. Give them good raises. It is not a very good idea to make your employees work every weekend.

    Pros

    Good discounts for audio products. Dont need to be qualified from a good school for being a manager.

    Cons

    Adhoc management. your qualifications dont matter. An entry level engineer is made a manager. No knowledgeable colleagues left in the company to learn things from. High attrition rate.

    Advice to Management

    Management cannot be advised here.

    Pros

    Did not find any reason

    Cons

    There is no work life balance in this company, they expect employees to work minimum 12 hours a day and most of the days it gets exceeds by 12 hours.

    Advice to Management

    You should hire more resources as per your work /Project requirement, 1 resource can work efficiently only for 9 hours daily , nobody wants to spend his/her whole day in office.

    Pros

    Salary. Great products. Large number of customers lined up.

    Cons

    Poor people management and work culture. No planning of work. Boss is boss. No space for independent opinions. But this also depends on which project you are working. I was unlucky to get all these things.

    Though Harman has got good products but they do not care for quality of work.

    In India mostly there are support kind of projects. Not a product culture for Indian employees.

    Advice to Management

    Improve middle management such as Engineering Mangers for improving work culture.
