HARMAN - A great organisation to Work for.
R&D Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  GURGAON, INSeptember 13, 2017
So far, the experience at HARMAN had been wonderful.

It is a place filled of exciting young Professionals who are very quick learners, positive in their outlook and strive to learn more and more to achieve the objectives of the organisation.

I expect that theOrganisation will incur multidimensional growth in all its business sectors.

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

not a bad job but culture is not the best
ATM (Former Employee) –  Franklin, KYAugust 22, 2017
good pay for the work. lots of overtime and now company is going out of business soon. the work life balance is a negative since they have a tendency to wait until the last minute to let you know if you have to work because it is all based off their current demand
Pros
good pay
Cons
overtime and closing soon

Too good for a short period
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

Great brand, well balanced work culture
Organization is a little too spread too with remote locations, but overall the company strives to achieve a work culture in keeping with the Harman brand
I would certainly recommend this place for anyone looking for a career in technical manufacturing, IT

Good growth opportunity but always chasing lowest cost without considering outside forces

Great place, but it is moving production to Mexico
Quality Coordinator/Incoming Inspector (Current Employee) –  Elkhart, INJune 5, 2017
The only reason I am leaving is that Harman is closing Crown Audio production in Elkhart, Indiana, and moving it to Mexico. It has been a great place to work.We are all like family. Most of us have been there 20 yrs or more. I could give several positives, but it won't be open anymore for anybody else to work there. that really is all there is to say.

Production plant closure
Production Planner (Former Employee) –  Cheney, WAMay 31, 2017
It is somewhat difficult to review Harman because shortly after being acquired it was felt that the intention was to close our local facility and move production to another location outside of the country. Prior to the acquisition AMX formally Xn Technologies was as excellent place of employment. I would not have spent 18 years there if it was not enjoyable and I was able to learn many valuable skills.
