Company is more concerned about stock price than customers or employees

I worked at AutoNation full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Large enough company that an employee that is lazy or inept can keep their job (pro for that employee).
Management can make a low 6 figure income, pretty easily.

Cons

Return for shareholders is more important than taking care of the customer and employee. Yes, a public corporation is created for shareholder value (by law)… but the only thing management truly cares about is moving the stock price to affect their options.

Corporate attitude- CYA, who you know is more important than production, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Truly focus on the customer and the employee and shareholder value (net profit) will take care of its self

    I worked at AutoNation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big name is the only pro.

    Cons

    EVERY department is constantly dealing with pay cuts. I have never seen anything like it. I put up with it for 5 years. Only hourly employees are safe. They only care about the stock. This includes sales parts AND service. All that plus a lot of training! YAY.

    Pros

    Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Pay is all over the place. Can make good money one month than nothing next month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to get Sales a base pay and bonus structure and that will reduce turn over and make for happier employees.
