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

Pros

Nation wide organization with room to grow or transfer if desired. Company spends money on technology to upgrade dealerships in addition to remodeling dealerships to updated surroundings. Opportunities for learning and advancement.

Cons

Changes in pay plan occurred way to often 4-5 in one year. Seniority was not recognized by some in middle management causing major conflicts in scheduling especially for vacation request or during the holidays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to trim middle management when needed.

    The company really tries to work together as a group and they often hold trainings with people from different parts of the company. They have a pleasant corporate culture and have hire great people.

    Cons

    There are not many downsides except that benefits don't start until you have worked at least 6 months even if you work full time.

    Pros

    Good compensation.
    Good benefits.
    If you are willing to move you can keep long term employment.

    Cons

    If you are family of upper management you have it made.
    Not much diversity at the top.
    Some HR managers were recruited from the gestapo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to tell operations to do more with less at least listen and provide support.
    Tired of hearing you are only as good as what you did yesterday.
