Pros

The opportunity to make a difference in the company. This company is in transition both from a business model and cultural perspective. These are not easy things to accomplish. When you choose to participate in such a transition, you need to understand that everything isn't black and white. Transition is change, so the way things are today, may well be different in a month or two months; and it may be different again two months later - that is what transition is all about. If you aren't comfortable with change, you may find it a challenge. If you thrive on change, then you will fit in well.

Cons

One needs to always have patience - it is no different here than elsewhere, the attributes vary, but the net is not unlike other companies. It is a changing environment; that is both an upside and a downside, depending upon what your personal comfort level is. For me, change has always been a part of the environment in which I have worked. If you expect everything to be described, defined, the "i's" dotted, and the "t's" crossed, then you will be dissapointed. If you thrive on the challenge of making things better and fully engaging, overcoming obstacles, and taking personal accountability, then you will find it very interesting.

Advice to Management

Hold firm to the discipline to execute against plan!

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    An open environment where it's say to say what you think; the ability to move up in the organization if you're motivated; managers who treat their employees with respect; a company that treats its employees with dignity and respect; the ability to work for an organization (AAA) that people love and that helps its members (roadside assistance, insurance, travel, discounts)

    Cons

    I strongly disagree with many who have posted extremeley negative reviews on this site of CSAA. 2008 was a difficult year to be sure, but it was difficult for a lot of companies. AAA is a great company and I'm proud to be an employee, despite technology issues that are being addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They haven't laid off everyone who cares. They won't fire you unless you want to be fired, but they will lay you off if you have over 15 years in and are paid over market rate.

    Cons

    Dark age technology. Suppression of progressive thinking. Executive management is out of touch. No planning. Continue to waste millions of dollars on broken projects and lay off more front line staff to pay for the executive errors.

    Advice to Management

    When will you be accountable? You cut staff and place a freeze on hiring and demand efficient processes with the most inefficient technology in the industry.
