    I have been working at Lithia Motors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A highly dynamic company that values and empowers it's employees. Growth potential abounds.

    Cons

    It's a busy company in a competitive industry reliant on consumer need...there is always pressure to meet goals no matter the market (as to be expected)

    Advice to Management

    Constantly cross-train and spend time on the front lines to try and eradicate "us vs. them" mentality

      I worked at Lithia Motors full-time

      Pros

      one of the only large employers in the valley, so work there may be a necessity if you are tied to this area

      Cons

      Management does not believe in the professed values of happy, engaged employees. The corporate culture is weaponized to use and abuse employees, at least at support Services. Though, from what I hear from current workers working at the dealerships is even worse. Avoid if at all possible.

      Advice to Management

      Some mid and a few senior level managers at Corporate need to be called out for impossible standards and blame cycles for their staff. Also, for christ's sake IT needs more support. Those people deserve so much better.

      I have been working at Lithia Motors full-time

      Pros

      Lithia is the biggest employer in Southern Oregon. It is a Fortune 300 company, which allows it to do some things that smaller companies cannot in the way of potential benefits and opportunities.

      Cons

      Directors and Vice Presidents have grown up with the organization and lack any type of knowledge outside of Lithia. (This is definitely not everyone.) It is like high school every day. If you are not part of their clique, you are shunned, shut down, and discarded. Your opinion and thoughts do not matter. One of the worst corporate experiences of my career. Overall management relies too much on acquisitions and...

      Advice to Management

      It's time to listen to the folks that come from outside the organization with ideas that may actually make sense and can benefit the organization long term. Replace the terrible managers who cannot communicate professionally. Compensation.

      I worked at Lithia Motors full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      The pay can be good with the right manager

      Cons

      New pay plan with a new manager, never knowing what your getting paid. One time pay dropped several thousand dollars a month.

      Advice to Management

      Consistancy helps keeps employees happy, if you make one follow a rule then make everyone follow it. (Like being on time) Also if someone has been with you a long time dont change there pay everytime a new manager comes along and make them worry if they can even pay there Bill's.
