    Pros

    Great employee culture and opportunity to grow and advance your career. This company is constantly evolving, and if you can roll with the changes, a lot of opportunity can be afforded to you.

    Cons

    Sometimes the multi-state empire aspect can be a little frustrating, with day activities of the company taking place across several time zones. Sometimes quick action is hard to attain.

    I worked at AutoNation full-time

    Pros

    Decent scheduling, easy to request vacation
    Co-Workers really make the experience worthwhile

    Cons

    Company is so large you become just another number; you live and die by your metrics not your contributions to the company or it's customers
    Neck-breaking speed of turn over; management fails to train or mentor employees and it keeps the door spinning
    Super long work hours, frequently asked or pressured to come in on your days off and pressured to miss/skip your lunch breaks
    Compensation is extremely lackluster, especially when you're spending 60+ hours a week at work
    Upper management has this Judge Dredd attitude, very stand-offish and cliquey
    Benefits package is pretty weak for such a large company
    PTO accumulation is a joke
    Facilities are usually old and worn out, even with premium brands it doesn't feel premium and your clients will constantly remind you of this

    Advice to Management

    It's a workplace, not high school. Hire managers who know how to act like adults and treat everyone as equally.
    Metrics are great and all that but treat your employees as people, not numbers and you'll see a noticeable increase in veteran retention and overall profit.
