    I worked at HARMAN full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    the sound technology.
    some big names in automotive as customers.

    Cons

    the management in india has no vision and roadmap.
    management is trying to do too many things at once and worries about only their targets/bonus and never for employees.No proper place for work environment. like in one tiny cubicle 6 people are sitting and management does not care about it. Though it calls itself a product company it is just another WRO. ( people, culture everything !) some managers are like dictators and totally incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some vision and care for people and have some grass root level engagement with employees.

    Pros

    Quality of cheating the people by showing them some good work profile

    Cons

    Incredibly unfriendly, unprofessional, immature working culture and people. They don't want to respect and don't want to accept as well. If you don't have any other offer and you are in really bad shape then only choose this company. Some experienced examples:
    1. People can say that you are finding mistake within single month of your joining (even though in just one month you wouldn't have understood the complete system behavior). And the funny part is your manager will also agree on this, as ...ha ha ha... screw the requirement spec. his developers are more competent then the Spec.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't recruit people from good organizations.

    Pros

    Get chance to work for some of the best products in sound industry and some top customers in automotive.

    Cons

    As it is new in india and continuously growing, the policies are not yet formed properly.
    Lack of good technical work. until work starts coming from Indian clients, need to share work with US/Geman counterparts who treat you more like a service provider than a peer.

    I worked at HARMAN full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Small company, easy to get offer, very well talented bluffing, dictating leads and directors

    Cons

    Most of the newly joined experinced people are forced to work under less experinced, dump, immature leads.
    Leads and Directors are treat employees like slaves. They dont even know the meaning of respect.
    Management strongly believes bluffing and buttering skills than technical talents and hardwork.
    Promotions, hike, and onsite travel purely based on bluffing and buttering skills to the managers. No proper HR policy. Only some people always get benifits, rest dont even get reply mail from management.
    No proper hierarchy. positions are given in the company based on the date of joining (Great policy), Not based on experience and skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the talented people keep moving out, Senior management should recognize them.
    Senior Management should identify such bluffing leads/managers and their politics.
    Senior Management should do open talk with employees to resolve their issues.Otherwise company only left with all dump buttering people.

    senior software engineer

    I have been working at HARMAN full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good package
    - Company is profit. Hence, no middle drop out projects etc...

    Cons

    - Management treats employees like slaves. They don't have basic respect to their employees. Managers are like dictators.
    - No process is followed in the development life cycle.
    - If you are from a decent MNC, it is difficult to get adjusted here.
    - If you are holding an offer from Harman, might be offering little more than a standard MNC, better don't opt it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Give proper training to the managers(how to behave and to fill the spirit in the team to motivate them to work).

    Pros

    Being a new and growing company in india, you get a lot of recognition and your work is visible to all. Get a chance to directly communicate and work with more experienced counter parts in US and Germany. Also being very less head count company, you can directly communicate with top leads and directors.

    Cons

    As a new company in india, the policies are also very new and under experimental state. Still to mature and get a reformed shape.
