What is the retirement plan like at vAuto?

Pros

Good company with great benefits. They offer good PTO availability. They have decent retirement options like 401K and pension. Health benefits are also good. There is some room for advancement within the company. However, unless you are in with certain people, a jog here is better looked up as a stepping point for those getting that initial experience in the IT world.

Cons

Case workload is horrible. We're expected to have huge case loads, but are not given time away from incoming calls to work the cases. There are some huge concerns with management. There is a lot of scheming and plotting between managers. Nepotism is blatant. Horribly unqualified people advance so managers have their people in place because the drink the koolaid. Some managers, moreso in operations, some in support, are more concerned with making decisions that will protect their own jobs... Instead of doing their jobs. I wanted to apply for a position in operations. But I avoided it after seeing how the managers operate that team. I'm happier where I am.

Advice to Management

Cox is stifling vAuto due to the dead weight of other sister companies. Benefits, bonuses, PTO, and salary increases are balanced with those from sister companies. This is penalizing profitable vAuto for losers elsewhere. Take better care of the companies in Cox that are holding up the Automotive division. vAuto needs to do an internal review of management. There are managers moving this company in a direction that moves vAuto away from what made the company successful.

How are senior leaders perceived at vAuto?

Pros

Good benefits, work from home

Cons

Don't do it. Stay in the car business. There is zero chance for promotion. You will not make great money. Inept management (your resume is better than her's). No sense of direction. Horrible culture. Lack of support and structure. Condescending management. Made to feel like nothing is ever good enough, and you're completely disposable. Arrogance abound from leadership and company. Held responsible for things completely out of your control, and they'll write you up and fire you for it. Seriously. It's the best job you'll ever want to quit as soon as possible.

Advice to Management

Nothing will change until the current dinosaurs that are running the place are put to pasture. That's seriously the crux of all of the issues.

Arrogance abound from leadership and company.

How is management perceived at vAuto?

Pros

Great break room and a few good co-workers.

Cons

The management in the Operational Excellence group is narcissistic. The find every opportunity to beat down and bully their employees and tell them they are wrong. Even going as far as discriminating because of cultural clothing even though it fit within dress guidelines. Compliments are few and far between unless you are in the “In Crowd”. If management makes a bad decision, it is always someone else’s fault. Management doesn’t care for the well being of their employee should they be injured or require a medical procedure. They will hound their employee on when they are coming back rather than making sure they take the necessary time to recover. Employees are also scared to go to HR because there is a stigma that their info won’t stay confidential.
