A lot of potential, that is most often poorly aligned and coordinated

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Farmington Hills, MI (US)

I have been working at HARMAN International

ProsAbility to focus on priorities you set for yourself. High salary.

ConsDifficult to understand how roles and priorities align to business goals. Lack of forward looking goals, roles, and efforts. Resource management engages in reaction to missed deliverables, or key departures, not proactively. HR treats employees as pests to be managed.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in developing and challenging people, if you want a profitable future. Don't treat your racehorses as pack animals.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
