    I have been working at Ferrari full-time

    Pros

    It's great if you want to be surrounded by all things Ferrari and get to see the vehicles on a daily basis. But don't expect to actually be able to drive any of the vehicles. That's only reserved for a select few. Current CEO Edwin Fenech seems to understand he inherited a mess although it's yet to be seen if he'll actually do anything about it. You're not micro managed which can be a good thing because you can mold your position into what you want it to be and free to make decisions based on your background knowledge as long as they conform to what you believe to be the founders (Enzo's) vision of what the company should be.

    Cons

    Where to even begin? As the old saying goes, never meet your heroes. No raises, not even cost of living adjustment raises, have been given out in years. No explanation or communication from management as to why this is the case. If asked, management says it's the parent company in Italy not giving them. Meanwhile you'll read in all the news of the parent company posting record profits year after year. Take a look here on Glassdoor for the reviews of Ferrari Spa given by people over in Italy. They rave about how its one of the best companies to work for in Europe. They are listed here on Glassdoor as a separate entity from Ferrari NA. Here though if you speak to many of the employees at the NA headquarters they will tell you the exact opposite. Why is that?

    The CEO listed here is wrong. Parlato hasn't been with FNA for about 6 years and was a terrible CEO who only looked out for himself. The current atmosphere was only perpetuated by his replacement Mattiacci who again only cared about himself and his own career fulfilment. He left to run the F1 team and it was a disaster only lasting half a year if that tells you anything. Which leaves us now with Fenech who talks about change but like anything with Ferrari, it's slow going. Which is funny to think when the company is known for speed.

    If you're coming into the company, you better have your skills in order because you will get next to no internal training. This makes it difficult working with new employees as they are left in the dark on how to do things which creates a lot of hand holding. Not to mention many newer employees have little to no automotive background which is mind boggling. The company doesnt post open positions internally (not that there is ever many) so if you want to move up in the company you have to look on job sites to find postings.

    When reaching out to your parent company in Italy, often you are met with distain and you feel as though you are somehow bothering them. The parent company defiantly doesn't treat you like you are their equal. The fact is, you want to believe you are part of the team which is something the company prides itself on. Scuderia Ferrari as its known which translates to Team Ferrari but you find often that you struggle individually to just try to keep the gears of the machine turning.

    Advice to Management

    They need to realize that it's the many gears (employees) that keep this machine turning. This will be the most real review of Ferrari NA you'll ever read and I made it into the hope that upper management reads it and realizes things need to change and they need to change now. People don't want to leave the company but the way it's being run you are left with little choice but to have to.

    I have been working at Ferrari part-time

    Pros

    this is not like any other car dealer I have ever worked at.... they actually care about the employees and while the pay is not top for this industry the quality of life is. Also the customers are reasonable and wonderful to deal with.

    Cons

    Like I said the paid is middle of the road for the auto industry but the benefits out weigh the pay

    I have been working at Ferrari full-time

    Pros

    Good initial salary and excellent paid benefits.

    Cons

    Salary is restricted (literally no raises - it's on a freeze with no expected end date).

    The environment for women is now a culture of shut-up-or-be-fired. No one can step out of bounds without consequence. Disappointing for a global, iconic company.

    I have been working at Ferrari part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job, decent discount, uniform given to you

    Cons

    Manager constantly pressuring you to meet your hourly sales goals and announcing them to all of your coworkers and yourself via walkie talkie even though there is no commission, competitive, call in hours, horrible clocking system. I had to clock out in the middle of a big sale because it was against company policy to pay me a dollar more so I could finish a transaction because it went on past my schedule, happened several times a week. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    More promotions

    I worked at Ferrari full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting a wide range of international and interesting customers.

    Cons

    The owners of Forza Retail are inept and shortsighted, which has resulted in the hiring of store managers who consistently attempt to drive up sales by aggressively attacking customers. All sense of profesionalism and culture which is associated with the brand is lost by these sales tactics. Many times I would have to apologize to the customer for the horrible customer service experiences they had because sales associates were doing what management wanted

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring less more qualified employees and reward them for creating a professional, satisfying, and productive retail environment. Understand a customer experience is more than sales figures. Also engage in a store specific marketing plan.
