    I worked at Sonic Automotive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leadership, great managers, great employees! Treat employees very well, good incentive programs, training and perks.

    Cons

    Upper Management too far away - did not take enough time or interest in our area dealerships.

    Advice to Management

    Always listen to your front line employees.
