Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  San JoseJuly 28, 2014
I think Harmonic is good company, but not a great company. They have cutting edge products, but some of the business process lag behind. They hire some really great people, but functional groups do not necessarily work well together because of the silo mentality.

The good things about the place is that you will be compensated fairly; the benefits are good, and you will do meaningful work. The downside is a real lack of demand planning means that there is a ton of fire drills and everything seems ad hoc.
Pros
Good people, decent pay
Cons
Business planning and processes could be improved

Commodity Specialist (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 21, 2013
Management at Harmonic was fairly good. Most of the team really had a good grasp of the internal business and what was required to be successful.
The company did lack in structure and needs to organize itself in a way that reduces overlap and improves efficiency.
Pros
Low cost lunches, unlimited vacation
Cons
limited systems, inadequate process's, limited work life balance oprions
