  1. "Settlement"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bangalore

    I worked at Harman Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Did not work long enough to give a correct picture of what is right.

    Cons

    After I left for the last two years have been trying to withdraw my PF. Every effort is denied to get it resolved. I have now come to know that internally the amount has been misappropriated by the HR. People need to be very careful as this shows the corporate governance of the company.

    Pros

    Great people. Free soda.. if you drink soda. Pretty flexible in/out time.

    Terrible communication. You always find out the hard way. Micromanaging at it's finest. Very old school and reluctant to change. Pricey health coverage options.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Harman Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The good thing about working here is the people that you work with. When you get into a store with a strong crew or you hire people that strengthen your crew, you have easy days that are more like playing than work. You'll crack jokes and have fun, but you'll get the job done well and involve the guests in the fun. Harman's also has a lot of opportunities for a person to advance from a crew member to a supervisor or above, basic demonstration of your ability to do your work efficiently will lead you to promotion sooner than you would think.

    Cons

    The main challenges are when you become management you are expected to always be there and the more you start to know about the business, the more you become jaded by being there. The more business concepts get thrown at you, the more you realize it is hard to hit all their targets without compromising what they initially ordered you to do.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Harman Management

    Pros

    Despite it being a KFC-franchisee, they actually do a lot for their employees, within reason. Management is great and well stream-lined. Promotes from within, and promotion comes quick and often. Was offered the position of relief management within 6 months. Management positions are offered stocks in the company, giving additional incentives. Projects are not anonymous, and great work are recognized. There is an ownership of the company, as well as ownership of personal responsibility that is promoted.

    Cons

    For a fast food chain, Harman have exceeded every single expectation I had expected. There are no cons considering it is a fast food chain.

    Restaurant General Manager in Sacramento, CA
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Harman Management

    Pros

    Harmans is a great company, where with hard work anyone can make over six figures. You have the oppurtunity to succeed, and only thing that may stop you is yourself and maybe your personal life.

    Cons

    Not enough time off. You get paid well for a reason, and that is because you are expected to work your butt off.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Harman Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have never had a more challenging, fun, or rewarding job. I feel very fortunate to work with the people I work with. Even though I have a "dead end fast food job" I am making more money now than I ever have before and they keep giving me more.

    Cons

    If you are the kind of person who considers working hard a LOT and negative thing, Harman's isn't right for you.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Harman Management for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Be your own boss. Control your schedule. Almost treated as an owner, not just a manager. Gain lots of life experience.

    Cons

    Hours can get VERY long. Pay doesn't seem very competitive. EXTREMELY high expectations, with pay that doesn't match same expectations. 28 hour Max for most employees creates much more stress for staffing, especially if your store is understaffed. Favoritism shown by upper management and easily shown by most promotions. Lots of stores are very poorly maintained, which creates more chances for failed inspections. (Walk-In fridge in lots of stores don't work properly, etc)
