    Pros

    Excellent stable company with competitive salary, benefits, bonuses and raises each year if you do your job well, and great workers with overall motivated goals/good work ethic for the most part. There will always be lazy people in any large firm but most of the associates here have good moral and are satisfied with their jobs. If they can't move up that is their fault it's a competitive company.

    Cons

    Moving to Texas and not giving much benefits to lower level jobs assuming they can just hire these kinds of talent (like assistants) once they get to Texas for a lower salary.

    Advice to Management

    It's not too late. Do not move to Texas you are loosing most of your great talent with long experience that is irreplaceable.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, steady job (no layoffs). Great school to learn how to do things right in the car business.

    Cons

    Career advancement can be painfully slow. Salaries are most likely the lowest in the auto industry; if you can live with that then I highly recommend Toyota.

    Advice to Management

    You've done it! You have decided to move away from CA and into TX; shedding off a bunch of older middle managers who never moved from their positions and therefore created no opportunities for younger workers. Now attract new talent and keep the young ones moving on with you to Texas!

    Pros

    Tries to support its employees in most things.

    Cons

    Moving to TX, many of the things that make it a great place to work might not stay with the company through the move.

    Pros

    Great people. Strong people of character who are typically easy to work with. Great collaborative culture. Great reputation. Great flexibility and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Very slow to move through new challenges especially when the parent company gets involved. The lifetime employment leads to a mix of very strong as well as middling players but most have the best intentions.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe trim some of the fat and bring in some strong players to replace them.

    Pros

    The benefits are ok. Used to be a great place to work. Company vehicle to drive. Good 401k plan with decent company match.

    Cons

    Lots of unethical managers. Overworked and underpaid. Managers refuse to approved legitimate overtime. Expected to answer phone calls and emails while on vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Have repercussions for unethical practices that are brought to HRs attention. Actually pay overtime when it is worked or risk yet another lawsuit.

    Pros

    Wealthy company with a long track record. Very financially healthy. Excellent product line with good quality. The company has multiple locations so relocation is very possible.

    Cons

    You are a tiny cog in a very large wheel. To get ahead, you must "drink the Kool Aid" and be very non controversial.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that it is the system that built you and not the other way around. Much of the company's success is despite you, not because of you.

    Pros

    Structured career tracks, great compensation, and amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Politics, culture, and a dark side to field life. HR turns a blind eye to conduct in the field, often with conversation and actions very questionable.

    Advice to Management

    Impossible to control politics or culture. It's just the nature of the industry.
