    Pros

    Some really great managers here...

    Cons

    ...Mixed in with a few bad managers.

    Advice to Management

    Get management personalities on the same page, people. Stop having managers that work more in mood, than mannerism. It will bring better consistency for those that expect a professional employment experience on a daily basis.

    I worked at Park Place Motorcars full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Used to be an award-winning dealership group with cutting edge ideas and leadership... so the capacity is there. The biggest “pro” are the people who DO the work, that show up day in and day out with a smile taking care of clients. Owner was a visionary to be sure, but he’s not involved, or no longer cares. I only give a two because the people I worked with were awesome.

    Cons

    Constant lies and terrible communication, unfulfilled promises, double standards and hypocrisy from HR leaders and upper management, limited-mind leadership and backhanded HR practices.

    Advice to Management

    Your best assets are RIGHT in front of you. Without THEM, the members - you are NOTHING. Take care of them. Coming on board, expectations are high - only to be let down by the reality that it is only held together by the long term employees working their tails off, to support the top heavy inexperienced leadership.

    Pros

    Park Place used to be great but no more

    Cons

    Leadership is a joke
    Everything starts at the top and ends there. If you want to be a robot and micro managed, this is the place for you

    Advice to Management

    No use because they don’t think they need any advice

    Pros

    The members (tenured). Those that have been there ten years or longer - they are what build the company and are truly the Experts in Excellence. Of the Leadership Team, there is the one President that cares for the employees.

    Cons

    The HR Leadership - terrible! The training - terrible! They have the biggest turnover but no one will look at the leader - everything changed when that changed. Now our Leadership Team is changing, which is a joke. Please go back to valuing your employees, celebrating, recognizing - we were award winning! We were different! We lived our values - now the majority of our top leaders don't even live by the core convictions. Benefits are a joke and so expensive. Training has gone downhill and isn't as engaging or valuable as before. What happens to career paths? The Leadership program went backwards. I could go on and on but no one listens to it doesn't matter.

    Advice to Management

    Please look at your Leadership Team. You don't have the right leaders - find someone with experience who can help build your culture, not tear it down. Go out and talk to your people and listen to them - I understand we need to progress but don't throw out all of the good things we did in the past - build on it otherwise we will have to leave because as of now we see no future here (most employees feel this way).
