The economy is bad, I'm not sure what can be done. The direction appears to be good from an enterprise standpoint.

Pros

Benefits package is outstanding. Great company image. There is a lot of work that needs to be done here.

Cons

Much micromanagement to the point where it takes a long time to get projects started and completed. There seem to be too many steps along with sign-offs/approvals that need to happen on each project.

Advice to Management

There has to be better ways to streamline our technical assets and use them more efficiently to help the company. We should re-evaluate the methodology used in IT for project management and look for efficiency gains.

    Pros

    Harley is a good place to work. There are a lot of nice people, the pay is competitive & the benefits are better than most. Being an employee of Harley-Davidson is well thought of by Milwaukee residents. Working at a large company like Harley-Davidson makes you feel somewhat secure.

    Cons

    Expectations to get the job done, "no matter what", are high. If your project falls behind, you are expected to work long hours to catch up. Also, when the economy goes south, as it has right now, you do have to worry about losing your job. Probably no worse than any other place, though.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers.

    Pros

    Riding the bikes is excellent if you get to test them. Using the engineering tools is good, but they do not allow enough time to get it done right. Cutting corners is the best way to meet the time lines and stay in good graces. Then you have to blame others to protect yourself. This is the best way to work at this company.

    Cons

    The office politiics are over the top, really a hard place to create new products. Because they do not really create new products, it is really impossible to innnovate and take the time to listen to teammates. The only way to blame others and lie, cheat and talk your way to the tap, which is really sad.

    Advice to Management

    Allow teamwork, foster creativity and empower people
