    Pros

    Most of the people are nice people to work with and you can learn a lot if they are willing to share their knowledge.

    Cons

    FCA is a boys club. If your dad worked here, you’ll get promoted and keep going to the top, no matter what your merits are. Meanwhile others who are more qualified and who’ve held your same position, get passed up for promotions. It’s a terrible thing to watch. Women in the field get passed up from promotions to larger “metro” districts because management assumes they can’t handle themselves in front of bigger dealer groups.

    Advice to Management

    Do better

    I worked at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy money; No accountability and no responsibility; No one cares about the company

    Cons

    Promotions are strictly based on friends and family program ( also known as good old boys network); Racism and Nepotism at its best; Poorly Qualified Management; Most promotions are taken internally without interview; Human resources have very little control

    Advice to Management

    Please interview people who apply for jobs internally; Unless Nepotism and Racism is removed, this company will not survive!

    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation for all employees.

    Cons

    Poor Corporate Culture. Extremely disorganized. Too much "box checker" and "CYA" atmosphere/culture. Employees not appreciated. Employees rarely provided with proper training but, "held accountable" for any mistake. Managers too concerned with "keeping the bodies buried" and making it to retirement. Fading fringe benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your talent pool instead of just relying on a perpetually revolving door of using people and spitting them out only to get new ones that you don't want to train either.
