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

    Pros

    AutoNation is a real family environment, as it is a real team focused on a single goal. Teams work to push the envelope on innovation by addressing the needs of the customer. I am in a new team in eCommerce, which feels like an incubator with the backing/resources of a Fortune 200. Fun and challenging environment.

    Cons

    Biggest challenge is the industry. The teams are focused on changing a 100 year old industry with modern technologies. The constant friction point is the balance between the OEM and store change as the largest automotive retailer in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never stop your relentless pursuit of delighting the customer. The team is 100% behind making a difference in the industry with the leadership of Mike Jackson and Mike Maroone at the helm.
