    I have been working at KAR Auction Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with the company for just over 3 months. First of all, anyone who "disapproves" of the CEO has never actually met the man. He treats everyone he comes across in the company with dignity, courtesy and respect.
    The people are what really makes a company great and the people at KAR are extremely hardworking, dependable and loyal to the company.
    Great benefits, PTO, work/life balance.
    With so many different companies under KAR- there are a lot of opportunities for career advancement and have witnessed a lot of support for internal employees. Employee referral bonuses are amazing.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better.

    Advice to Management

    There is no perfect company but KAR has a lot of Management with heart. Managers need to remember to be leaders and mentors- not managers.
