    Pros

    AutoNation is a great company to work for but management needs to change. Fun place to work at. Lots of events. Employee discounts are very good.

    Cons

    Benefits are very expensive. Hours are long. Management seems to be trying to squeeze every last minute of your life. Customers can have outrageous demands.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more time off and better hours. Every weekend is not necessary or healthy.

    I worked at AutoNation full-time

    Pros

    The prestige of the name and work space.
    Corporate events.
    Access to Downtown and covered parking.

    Cons

    HQ is not a feel good place. Management rules by fear and being told 'you are replaceable, we are all replaceable' is common. Much of the company's public face is hypocrisy behind closed doors. They are focused on looking good but are out of touch with their own employees. Management is presented what they need to be shown and employees are expected and held to 24-hr received well.
    They notoriously pay vendors late and skirt the rules.
    The company runs like an insurance company - taking risks that they will only have to pay out or handle certain things.
    Appreciation is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your employees another layer down and care!
    Many people of tenure work the system to remain but should be replaced. Department heads tell management what they think management wants to hear to keep their jobs - not what is in the company's best interest or the whole truth. Decisions are short-sited for budget reasons and cost the company triple for not using foresight and common sense. CEO is extremely intelligent and business savvy but either has no idea what is happening in his own company's office to his own people or doesn't care.
