    Pros

    Great company that does care about their employees. Salaries are comparable to industry.

    Cons

    Benefits are pretty expensive for a family but that's probably pretty typical these days. Certain departments have no structure for advancement, mainly the corporate departments.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    For sales:
    -Ability to make a great income
    -Getting to work with a great product
    -Professional atmosphere when looking at the industry as a whole

    Cons

    For sales:
    - Still the car business, and i stress this. No matter how high end the product or how good the company name - this is still the car business. You are only as good as your last months earnings.
    - This is a sales job, the commissions you make are your only form of income. The pay structure is not what it should be. Selling a $200,000 car and making $1000 is not okay.
    -Porsche survey system is broken.
    - The gap between management and the rest of the staff. Your ideas, concerns and desires are not heard or truly listened to.
    - Working every Saturday and being pressured to work on your day off.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on your relations with your employees. Care about them on a personal level, this job is hard enough as it is working every Saturday and spending so much time away from your family. Cut the BS with the survey system and actually look at the issues. Improve your pay structure.

    Pros

    company cares about it's members and seeks to promote within

    it is a commission job and pay plan is catered to the individual so don't expect all that much help from other co workers in the same situation.
