What I learned from Harman
IPM - Industrialization Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Novi, MINovember 13, 2017
Harman is a very rewarding place to work at. Besides for the fast paced environment and busy schedule, you get the opportunity to learn a lot about electronics.
In my opinion the hardest part of being a project manager in Harman is to juggle your schedule. Many meetings everyday and travelling internationally may be a little difficult but, its worth it!

Company Restructuring
Employee (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXNovember 8, 2017
Employees being laid off due to moving jobs to China/India. This has caused much tension and the culture of the company has dwindled. Quickly becoming a stressful workplace with the expectations being set for the remaining employees to work longer hours under stressful conditions.
Pros
$3.00 Lunch
Cons
higher deductible health plan.

Harman International
Employee (Former Employee) –  Elkhart, INOctober 23, 2017
Working at Harman has been comfortable in the position I am in with the direct manager I have. I have enjoyed working with my team. Unfortunately, the over all cultural climate has shifted and Harman no longer values the people who built the brands that have brought Harman success. A profit must be made, but employees are beginning to become undervalued and let go. The upper level management has become poor and out of touch with the employees that support the overall goals of the company.
Pros
Great Health Benefits
Cons
Out of Touch Upper Level Manangement

Sales-driven, low priority for quality engineering except in Connected Car
Director of Testing (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAOctober 16, 2017
Everything depends on who you have as your manager. Very difficult to move to other groups in the company; easier to quit and rehire. Connected Car division is very strong, visionary. Tough to get support for cybersecurity and testing initiatives.

Very fast pace and stressful automotive environment
Sr. Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  Novi, MISeptember 4, 2017
Harman has grown too fast. By combining several companies along with very rapid sales growth Harman has been unable to keep up with the required skilled people resources, procedures and processes. This makes the days long, frustrating and stressful. Very few people are experienced and knowledgeable to solve issues when they arise. Thus putting more stress on the entire company.
Pros
New facility, exercise room, cafeteria, discounts on products
Cons
Long hours, lack of people resources, very slow IT support

Bench Tester & Technician (Former Employee) –  Upper Saddle River, NJAugust 9, 2017
Good benefits, discounts, pay, facilities and working conditions but disrespectful treatment by the manager and supervisor. A great group of co workers that support me, help me and teach me a lot.In general everything was great but nothing is perfect and if it weren't for the manager and the supervisor would have been perfect also I know nothing is for ever but that is the other reason I didn't gave them five stars, "Job security" they moved the facilities to different countries (Mexico & India).
Pros
Money, benefits, discounts
Cons
They closed the facilities in New Jersey
