    I worked at CarMax full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was great to be a part of the team that changed an industry.

    Cons

    Culture destroying moves made post recession.
    Practice of daily culture diminishes focus on actions that actually sells units and products.
    Has become a bureaucratic disaster, with such a huge increase in administrative data entry and time consuming delivery of "feedback", that the goal of selling cars became a literal afterthought.
    I can't recall the last time anyone talked about comp sales or margins achieved.
    The overarching theme, which is drilled into everyones head like a Jim Jones city hall meeting, is to "develop" people so they can expand at the fastest pace in company history.
    What used to be a critical piece of the puzzle, hiring talent that was going to take them to the next level, has declined into settling for marginal candidates, so those above you can check boxes for their expected bench level at each store.
    Annual stock awards for the club at the very top have increased exponentially each year, while the field generals receive less each subsequent year.

    Advice to Management

    It would only be "taken under advisement" so there is no need.
    That would be deemed inefficient.
