Corporate office in Memphis ok, upward mobility difficult. The corporate office is dedicated to their 5K stores.

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Memphis, TN

ProsGood place to start a corporate job, to learn one type of corporate culture (they require you to shout a cheer and pledge before most meetings)
Location of office in downtown Memphis on Mississippi River
Free downtown parking
At a certain grade level, benefits package is great--Bonus, 401K, stock options, etc.
The corporate office is very dedicated to the retail stores, require "store dress" uniform day every Monday, otherwise business casual. No casual Fridays.
There are many long-time AutoZoners, people who have been working there for 20-35 years, which can be a good thing and a bad thing.
The corporate office really emphasizes employee recognition for a good job.

ConsThe internal depts are not integrated, don't use SAP, ERP, etc. to tie systems together. Systems are mostly home-grown and patched together.
The internal depts act as silos, independently, so communication can be tough. There's a lot of "old-school" thinking.
Upward mobility difficult, like to move senior management laterally to develop them but difficult to execute anything with constant movement
Pay is below corporate averages for similar jobs in other places

Advice to Senior ManagementLateral senior management moves only hurt the employees under them. If the expectation is to review, do gap analysis, develop plan, implement, and review, then give us that time to execute without changing senior management, because you inevitably have to start over with a new strategy each time.
There should be a lot more collaboration among departments.
The pay should reflect the job requirements.
The company should upgrade their systems to catch up to the 21st century.

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