    If you love technology, innovation, and working in a competitive environment - you need to be here.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Elk Grove, CA

    ProsNew suite of products including mobile apps! New building, easy going staff and management. Great place if you need little or no supervision and take complete ownership of your work. Really nice gym. Huge parking lot, no stressful downtown style BS parking. Generous 401k and flex time for some positions. Coffee, tea, water, fresh fruit is provided by management. Warning: if you are looking for a state type gig, you will not like it here, new management, staff, and company direction will push you to bring fire to the table daily.

    ConsNot impressed with health insurance benefits from AutoZone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWay too many negative people taking up space and resources. You know who they are, cut em some severance and give them the boot. These people drag morale and productivity to the floor.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lies and more lies!!

    Senior UI Developer (Current Employee)
    Elk Grove, CA

    ProsOnly weekends ..oh don't forger the crappy coffee and the tea ..

    ConsNo room for growth.. Company is plunging down due to the lack of direction upper management has

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop sugar coating the reviews .. Most of the good reviews come from probably the CEO family which makes this company a family business ( entire family is employ here)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The best job experiences of my life have happened here.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Elk Grove, CA

    ProsThis company has long term stability and reasonable expectations. Management is improving over time and attrition rates are falling. There is still a familial culture in place, and long term employees are helpful and welcoming to new hires.

    ConsCompensation packages are on the low side of average. Parent company imposes cultural structure that is at times a poor fit for a technology company. There are too many meetings without formal agendas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstitute a profit sharing program that moves all the way down through the organization. Most of the retention this company enjoys is produced by people who fall below the threshold for bonuses and much of the new product development is produced and managed by people who fall below bonus thresholds. Re-study hourly versus salary rules and decisions, and treat all employees as though they are valued and respected.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A dream that turned into a nightmare

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Elk Grove, CA

    ProsMany great people to work with. Reasonable pay and benefits. Nice facility.

    ConsA huge disconnect between senior managment and the rest of the company. An environment that causes a very high turnover rate in key technology positions and sales. No sick time for hourly employees. Lack of planning and executing has opened the door for competitors to gain market share and put the company's long term outlook at risk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to take action to restore credibility and trust between yourselves and the rest of the company. One step I would suggest would be to stop adding beliefs, cultural messages and slogans. AutoZone has a set of values that has served them well for many years. Why pretend to push the AutoZone culture and then add so much other cultural stuff that only applies to ALLDATA? This is not only sending a mixed message. It has added confusion and made employees shake their heads while trying to keep track of it all.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mixed Signals

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Elk Grove, CA

    ProsGenerally a nice work environment, and most peers are willing to assist with any issues or questions as soon as they can.

    ConsManagement seems untrustworthy. Some claim to bee company people, then the next month they're gone. Others that stay seem to be in it for themselves only, although they say otherwise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop and personalize ways to help us as employees, and us as a company rather than trying to wedge off-the-shelf "solutions" into our environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No room for growth

    Field Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Elk Grove, CA

    ProsCompany with a clear record in the industry

    ConsCompany doesn't have a clear direction for the future. Upper management spend hours in meetings and does not provide with clear direction for projects. Benefits are a joke. Alldata is ruled by Autozone so they don't offer to help you with benefits. Environment is hostile and lack of dynamic pace instead of worrying about improvement and putting the right people in the right place they are more worry about their retirement plan

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your marketing campaign. . There is not a real connection with customers, reading the latest book from the latest publisher from the latest technology icon doesn't make anyone an expert. More sensitive regarding sick days and holidays

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Elk Grove, CA

    ProsGreat newer facility to work in. IT Director was very personable and communicative. Held regular meetings including entire large division to keep ALL informed. Dedicated to agile methodologies and had great conferencing technology. Benefits were pretty good except zero vacation in first year. Company has a lot of very long term employees and a lot return to work there after leaving to work for other companies.

    ConsNo vacation time in the first year. Parent co (Autozone) is extremely conservative and old school and it shows (e.g. Dress code and you have to wear a uniform shirt every Monday so you feel a connection with the Autozone retail workers - (roll eyes)). Telecommuting is not an option for anybody but higher level managers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
