    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, independence. Really regret leaving this position, thought the grass was greener elsewhere, bad decision on my part.

    Cons

    100% travel, road warrior, but on a positive, work week was not bad.

    I have been working at AutoPoint as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Our team of five interns was able to work directly with the senior management of the company, and we were given lots of freedom on how to meet our goals and assignments. All of the employees were open and very helpful, and we always had help when we needed it.

    Cons

    No performance reviews were made during the internship, so I don't know what they thought of my personal performance as an intern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the open door policy in the office. It's really helpful to know that those with experience and influence are always available.

    I have been working at AutoPoint as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    This internship gave me hands on experience to accomplish real tasks in a growing and fast paced business. The greatest part of interning at AutoPoint was the opportunity to learn from and directly work with the Senior Management Team. It was an incredible opportunity to report directly to the Managing Director and to receive his insights. The work environment at AutoPoint is exceptional. It was a blast getting to know the employees and to work with many of them. This internship encouraged open-minded thinking and introducing new ideas. During the time I interned a few of the key skills I got to strengthen are building and presenting business presentations/decks, working in Excel, research, forecast, team work and ultimately create a full business model. It was an overall phenomenal experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone. AutoPoint is a hard working environment with high expectations, but in addition to the great work atmosphere they also enjoy getting out and doing fun things as a company.

    Cons

    There really weren't any cons of this internship experience. Performance reviews during the internship would have been great to get an understanding of where I could improve during the internship experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As mentioned in the con section performance reviews during the internships would add to the learning experience. I would also suggest providing more background information about the company and the product at the beginning of the internship for a more clear understanding from the get go. The entire experience was incredible.

    I have been working at AutoPoint as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    AutoPoint has a great company culture. As an intern I was always treated as part of the team and there is little to no bureaucracy. I always felt like I could talk to anyone at anytime and get an answer to my questions. During my time at AutoPoint I was able to do meaningful work and grow my skill set as a business person.

    Cons

    My internship was only for <30 hours per week, which personally I liked, but if you feel you really want to work 40 hours as an intern you might not be able to. Be ready to perform as an AutoPoint employee. If you just want to coast through and not put in the work you won't thrive with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue pursuing a culture of open improvement and communication. Overall this company has a rock star senior management team and together they are pushing AutoPoint to improve and grow in new places.

    Pros

    Everyone has a sense of ownership in the company and day to day activities. You feel as if the Management team values your opinion and the work you do. It is exciting to be a part of a company that is constantly evolving. Work and life balance has always been a plus. It is encouraging to have a team of people that not only support you in the work environment but personally as well.

    Cons

    Keeping up with the volume of change is no doubt a challenge but it is what makes the company stand out from the rest.

    Pros

    Great leadership works hard to communicate openly and share vision. Committed to helping team members grow and become as successful as possible. Tons of opportunity within AutoPoint and Solera for career advancement.

    Cons

    At times, new approaches to thinking, process and accountability can be uncomfortable, but would you rather be comfortable of part of something great?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to lead openly with boldness and conviction. Be urgent. Value communication and teamwork.

    I have been working at AutoPoint full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the markers of good leadership is the willingness to do what they are asking of their teams. At Autopoint we work for those who breath that model. The phrase "Open Door" is epitimized. However, more than an invitation to voice dissatisfaction the open door here is one that allows all members of all teams, regardless of rank, to make suggestions and sometimes even pilot those ideas.
    Management asks for a lot, but they are willing to do it too, and if you think you have a better idea, it's invited to be shared.
    There is always a willingness to change what doesn't seem to be working...sometimes it gets changed because it isn't working well enough!

    Cons

    The work-life balance leans in the direction of work at Autopoint. As a nation wide company within multiple time zones calls may come in pretty early for one coast and they can ring late for the other.
    Our clients have demanding schedules and sometimes, our schedules need to bend to in unique directions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be willing to reevaluate all policies, proceedures and structures at all times.

    Pros

    Autopoint is an okay place to work. The managers try very hard to do what is best for the company and the employees. Compensation is okay but the benefits are very expensive.

    Cons

    Constant change for the sake of change especially now that Solera is involved. Also the Solera principles feel like they are trying to indoctrinate us into a religion. Nepotism used to be a huge problem for the company in the old days and it went away only to come back again recently. How many managers relatives work here now. 5 maybe 6. Wonder if Solera is okay with that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on the company, its products, and customers and less time on educating us.

    I have been working at AutoPoint full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    AutoPoint has a good compensation and benefits plan, which includes a 401k match and an industry-standard PTO plan.
    The teamwork, intra-departmental, is beyond reproach. Truly, I have never worked at a company before where teammates are so willing to help each other.
    They have a beautiful new, centrally-located office, just off the I-15 freeway with many convenient restaurants and other amenities nearby.
    The work is continually engaging and the customer base is absolutely fantastic. I can't stress this enough, the customers are amazing to work for.

    Cons

    Human capital flight (Brain Drain)
    Communication issues between departments
    Perceived lack of employer/employee loyalty and appreciation
    A great deal of change; expected and not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamlining process is smart and good business, yet increasing EBITDA at the cost of those that help make the profit seems counterintuitive and myopic.
    Overall you have a team that is extremely loyal to the company but there is a perception that this loyalty isn't returned.
    Your Blog touts the importance of dealership employee retention, customer loyalty, listening to service reviews, etc... These insights aren't only valid for our customers.
    AutoPoint is a fantastic company with limitless potential; please don't forget about the rank and file employees. We are what ultimately make the company successful.
