    I worked at Automotive Finance Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very little micromanagement. You will set your own schedule. Awesome chance to build a network of contacts in the industry.

    Cons

    Middle management is so out of touch it ain't funny. They wouldn't know how to floor a car or apply a payment if their job depended on it.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who deserve rewarding based on results and not just by seniority. Become more engaged with actual branch operations.

    I worked at Automotive Finance Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I always felt supported by my boss as well as the branch. Executive staff, including CEO was always engaging and approachable. Overall company is ethical and tries do do the right thing.

    Cons

    They implemented a performance tracking program that differentiated the branch from the Area Sales Managers. the result has been more groups working against each other rather than working together. Their competitor's aggressiveness has allowed them to dominate certain markets and the feeling is always trying to catch up to them instead of creating "out of the box" programs that affords market dominance.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not be afraid to expand beyond your comfort zone and try new unorthodox approaches that your competitor would not ever expect.
