    Pros

    A growing company with a renaissance feel here. It used to be a half deentn company before. But, the management and VPs are hiring people from everywhere to imprve efficiency and morale.

    Lot of learning opportunity and growth here. Coming from a very big company, I see that this is were I want to be..

    Extremely flexible hours, international travel (frequently), suportive managers, not much micromanaging. they are letting us figure things out without too much interference

    Cons

    Some bad managers but that is it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in more people

    I have been working at HARMAN full-time

    Pros

    Great products, interesting work, and great people. Salary is competitive, but don't expect too many other perks. Work-life balance is heavy on the work side.

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement, red tape, and senior management interference. This shows lack of trust and the constant interference ripples through the organization causing undue stress and anxiety. The employees spend more time jumping through hoops than developing products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less criticizing and more coaching. Empower your managers and employees to make decisions. Put more focus on your customer relationships. Recognize that you are not the smartest person in the company and leverage your experts.

    Pros

    Nobody cares how many hours you spend at work as long as you get the work done
    Competitive compensation
    Good products to work on

    Growth depends on how good you are in pandering to your bosses
    Management is young and shortsighted
