    I have been working at Lithia Motors full-time (Less 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 have been working at Lithia Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For what the plan actually covers, it’s great....

    Cons

    .... Unless you’re transgender or have cancer or a host of other medical issues not protected by ERISA or HIPPA. Healthcare is based on Oregon legal guidelines (because the company is based in Medford, OR).

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times; ERISA came out in 1974, HIPPA came out in 1991, update your healthcare plans.

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

    Pros

    Intense, dynamic work environment.
    Great for your resume.
    You WILL learn a lot about accounting and excel!
    Good environment for obtaining your CPA.
    Lots of free food.

    Cons

    Terrible management; emphasis is on the company, not the employee.
    No compassion.
    The pay is WAY below market or what is deserved for the work performed. Don't be fooled by the fancy building, the cool culture, or the Fortune 500 status; you are not treated like a Fortune 500 employee.
    The company runs on recent graduates who don't know any better and don't last because of the stress and lack of pay. The department also runs understaffed deliberately. These are cost saving techniques to maintain their lean overhead and low profit margin.
    The health benefits package is wildly expensive, especially if you have dependents.
    Accountants are required to work many additional hours with no overtime pay. Many employees stay at work past 10:00 pm regularly.
    Managers and Supervisors are manipulative, cold, and miserable themselves. It seems to be a trickle-down effect from the CFO and/or Comptroller.
    Supervisors and managers possess no personal or managerial skills. Only technical.
    The company experiences extreme turnover due to harsh work environments., putting more strain on existing employees.
    Either the executive team makes acquisition decisions without considering the impact on the accounting department's workload, or the Comptroller shields the executive team from the reality. The end result is excessively overworked employees.
    This place will kill your soul.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees!
