    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at AutoNation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have a job.

    Cons

    The pay is a joke. Expected to continually take on more responsibility while not getting paid more, while those who know someone higher up get paid more and can't understand their job. Extremely clickish and apparent favoritism. Benefits aren't great. They keep saying changes are coming, but its never enough to make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your staff. Instead of throwing more at a person when they've told you they have too much work, maybe find help instead of just feeding into the wrong area.
