    Pros

    Pay is good, benefits are okay, vacation earned is great, stock savings plan is average to above average, flexible time encouraged at HQ

    Cons

    Dealers & UAW have too much power, there are too many managers that have to justify their existence, too many "YES" men/women including top leadership

    Advice to Management

    Promote more job movement with worker 'bees', minimize multiple 'layers' of leadership, give more buyouts to UAW to get rid of "Us v. Them" attitude, respect workers
