    Pros

    Corporate Culture, Openess of Exec. Management, Benefits, Employee Lease Program, Good Work/Life Balance

    Cons

    Relocating HQ from Montvale to Atlanta by mid-2015. Not content to be a sought after luxury brand, more concerned with saying they can do better than their main rival--BMW. Long-term employees now face no job because they feel the need to move to better the bottom line to beat BMW in profitabiity. Working for a company whose parent company is not U.S. based is very challenging.

    I worked at Mercedes-Benz USA full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Got to drive all sorts of fancy vehicles. Drove a Ferrari for the first time working here!
    -Got to take half days off to deliver customer loaner vehicles. It's fun to drive a brand new Mercedes everywhere
    -Easy work. Not rocket science, just be friendly and good with people
    -Salary was good considering how easy the work was
    -Typically walked 3-8 miles a day just getting cars, this is positive for me because I enjoy exercising

    Cons

    -Most of the work is outside, you will be outside regardless of how bad the weather is. No one else will help you so moving slow doesn't help
    -No possibility of moving up in the company
