    I have been working at LKQ full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and uber casual work environment, Flexible schedules, advocates promoting from within, everyone has laptops, ability to work extra hours during the month and get one day off

    Cons

    PTO is not competitive, benefits are good but expensive, more bonus opportunities needed for more positions, more formal training needed at supervisory level and above.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to middle management when a problem arises, be more open-minded about possible alternatives, evaluate compensation levels more frequently, move beyond idea that all employees should necessarily enjoy the same fringe benefits. Regional differences should matter.
