    I worked at AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Weekends and major holidays off, 401K, good health benefits, good training by staff, great locations and possibilities to get P&C License. Staff was amazing to work with, like family.

    Cons

    Management is nice but doesn't always lend a hand to help fix situations. Makes for a frustrating work environment. Health benefits premium a little on the high side.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees & help them out when you can. Remember without them, there is no one to help the customers who in turn help pay your salary.

    Pros

    Awesome bens, amazing brand . Long history of being advocate for motorists. Talented people.

    Cons

    CEO seems smart but the people running the Branches need reigning in and office culture suffers while aggressive growth goals and Managements weird way of getting results fosters confusion and contempt toward Managers. And most managers are new (brought in from retail not insurance ) Divirsty of thought is good but we need subject matter experts in Management.

    Advice to Management

    Start a Management training program . Promote from within . Listen to your agents and staff . They help the members and know what's going on . Hire mgrs that are good coaches and nice people . We say never let a peer fail but we often see employees let go ? Invest in training . We send an email and a webinar and expect people to be experts . Less silos and more direct communication. We need to be flatter and more nimble . Encourage open dialogue and remove current culture of fear .

    I have been working at AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits were great, 401k plan vested day 1, pto accrued 4.5 hours per check and capped at 400 hours. Easy work, but no growth if you do not have a graduate degree. I will take my talents elsewhere.

    Cons

    Recent take over of 2 clubs, left Arizona and MWG with no direction. Managers were displaced as well as demoted. All management is now in the Bay Area, with remote departments left to fend for themselves. Salaries are very low, $50k for supervisor, $60k for manager with 10 years experience, according to glass door leaders were underpaid about $10k.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people the market rate, let your managers the autonomy to run their business, create opportunities in areas other than the Bay and be transparent.

    Pros

    Strong vision for the future, investing to keep the company relevant, fast paced environment. Good pay and benefits if you're willing to work hard for them.

    Cons

    Company is spread out across 7 states - limited chance to meet coworkers. You need to work hard to keep up with everything that's going on and feel connected to things going on outside your branch office.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to keep people feeling plugged into the organization.
