Indianapolis - Horrible location to be in at Harman
Engineer (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INAugust 20, 2013
Pros: -4:30 work day
Cons: poor management, incompitency, intimidation, previous employees from the buyout have special previliges
Environment:
Threatening, Quality managers walk to your desk and force you to raise your voice to customers and suppliers.

Management:
Poor managers from VPs to Project Managers. 3 hour lunches (politics to show they are in early and stay late) and only working 5 hour days while everyone else is working typical 8 hours.

Managers have moved from technician – more... roles into managing 8-10 people at once. (Needless to say they are not able to handle it and they can not run a project to be successful)

Co-workers:
Incompetent, unwilling to work with you to learn new technology, Indianapolis location employees are waiting for they bonus from the buyout while new employees are doing the work. Employees here are threatened and intimidated with no retaliation.

Do what I say and don't think about it attitude across the team. – less

Great job, long drive
Test technician (Former Employee), Washington MOJanuary 12, 2013
Pros: diversity of work
Cons: shutting down
I would have rated most areas higher, but the fact that the factory was shutting down brought most of them down as there was no oppertunity to be hired permanent or be promoted.

I maintained the test equipment, which were prone to mechanical issues, software problems, or electrical issues. Nearly 100 different operations to learn in a short period – more... of time. Wish it had been closer to home and not in the process of moving to Mexico. I enjoyed the challenges it presented, and my team mates were great people to work with. They were willing to give a helping hand when needed and you did not want to disappoint such a good team. – less

Pay was good but work was 7 days a week and was through a temp service.
Maintenance and Testing Technician (Former Employee), Franklin, KYJuly 21, 2012
Pros: paycheck
Cons: lack of time off. no benefits being through temp service.
The job was not wat was advertised in the beginning. The training was all on the job training picking up from others. The work schedule was 7 days a week without time off for several weeks at a time. No promise of being hired on full time from the temp service I was through.
