Hreat place to work for
Collections Representative III (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXFebruary 10, 2017
Awesome company , all about continuous improvement. Only downfall is the bonus structure and hows it calculated on basis points. No one in upper management can break down how to calculate it or how it relates to individual reps accountability or production. If that can be rectified it would have a 5 star rating. Promotions are appointed as intermittent positions and perception is their reality so be careful with how u present yourself. Basic call center politics its not what u know its who u know that gets most people ahead. There are some dedicated Managers that attempt to work against the call center politics but get sucked in by being overpowered my upper management. It can be stressful at time but for the most part a cool company to work for.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Consistency

TCOE QA Manager (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXFebruary 3, 2017
Harley Davidson has very good benefits and has the typical work life balance for an IT organization. Being in IT you have to anticipate some after hours work to deliver applications into production.

Going through constant change
Director (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIFebruary 2, 2017
The company continues to go through a lot of change in a tough and competitive market place. They're trying to find their place and struggling with what's next. It's filled with great people who truly love the brand. They need leadership to use those great people to do what they do best and support them. Stronger leadership and delivering affordable products has to be their top priority.

Fun atmosphere with customers
Sales Associate and Cashier (Current Employee) –  McAllen, TXJanuary 30, 2017
Working for Harley-Davidson, the brand, is amazing! Working at Desperado Harley-Davidson is hard, management is extremely unprofessional and constantly losing great customers because of the general manager. Being there for years I've gone through 3 different owners and 5 different General Managers. Store is sadly going through a downward spiral slowly.
Pros
Great customers, helping people get what they want and need, and seeing people happy with their product
Cons
Attitude, management, no raises

Lots of tribal knowledge with little time to train and learn processes.
