    I have been working at Manheim as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, I was given a lot of width to work on a project independently, which was an incredible opportunity and is atypically in many internship positions, from what I've heard. Everyone in the office was very friendly and kind to the interns even if they weren't working with us directly, which made it fun to go to work. Additionally, the culture is great in that they really value their employees, and it's a very collaborative work environment; whenever I had a question about the database or excel or anything else, I had people to ask who were both incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    The one thing I would comment on is that I did notice that some of the full time employees who worked near me seemed to work long hours, one of them working about 10 hours a day. Not everyone does, and that may have been more self inflicted than required by his manager, but that was something that I did notice.

    A solid place to work, but conflicts between the old guard and many needed changes.

    I worked at Manheim full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have finally gotten rid of a lot of dead wood. It's a great business and they are really catching up with modern management and IT practices. Great people. Hold your weight and you can enjoy a steady career here. Fabulous bonus program.

    Cons

    Advancement still isn't based on meritocracy. And unless there is a crisis, people are too inclined to just wallow in the status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are great people at the auctions who don't reap the benefits that those in Corporate do. Hold everyone at Corporate to a higher standard and a similar set of goals.

    Pros

    great networking place to work if you are truly interested in the automotive community this company is a good start.

    Cons

    KPI this company use to be a family environment they treated there employees well and in return the employees strived. this is no more thanks to KPI. The company now runs everything based on numbers bottom dollars. the least amount of people doing the most work possible great idea. however your running your employees into the ground. they are dropping like fly's even some being medicated to handle the stress pressure and lack of balance. this company will never be what it once was if this continues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    respect your employees give them the tools and hands on deck that they need. If you believe an employee to be slacking find out the underline problem and take care of it. your employees will give you back what you give to them every time. 10 years ago this company understood that however it has been lost some where along the way.

    I have been working at Manheim part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, all of them. From top management all the way down the ladder. It is a class act business. If I were just starting out in my career I would definately look into Manheim. As a part-timer, I can's see anything that is missing. Management shows a sincere interests in finding a balance in what is best for me and best for the company.

    Cons

    I haven't seen anything that is problematic enough to mention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course.

    I have been working at Manheim full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Being that Manheim is part of Cox Enterprises, Manheim has great benefits (low cost) and a good PTO policy. They are definitely the powerhouse within the automotive auction world.

    Cons

    Once corporate brought a consulting firm to come in and determine what was best for an auction, things changed drastically. Field staff could not make a decision on an account without going through multiple levels of approval process at corporate. Operating staff at the auctions were cut to a minimum so customer service paid the price.
