    A culture of blame

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, financially stable with a well respected brand.

    Cons

    The work place environment is a culture of blame. Managers at every level are obssesed with not having their finger prints on anything so that they can point the finger of blame at others. Most of the middle managers are lifers and a legacy from when the Auto Club was a club, not a large corporation. They have no credentials, leadership skills and would not be considered for any kind of management position elsewhere.

    The level of micro management is draconian and independent thought is not only ridiculed, but punished and punished severely. Compensation at the Auto Club is very low compared to similar positions elsewhere. The bill of goods that you are sold in new employee orientation is that employees are cherished and most become lifers. The reality is that employees are looked upon as disposable assets.

    A significant problem with the Auto Club is that they have been insulated from outside influences such as the changing workplace environment and have not progressed times socially or technologically. The systems and equipment are antiquated. Pre-bankruptcy descriptions of GM accuarately describe the disconnect between upper management and the rest of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step up and take some responsibility. The inordinate amount of time spent blaming others is counter productive and a morale destroyer. Invest in technology and employee development. It is a more effective motivation and management tool than intimidation. Take a page out of Allan Mulally's book of leadership, you certainly need it.
