    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at vAuto full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work life balance (hardly any work at all get's done here)

    Cons

    Management has no clue what to do. Giant mess, tons of levels of middle management with absolutely no ability to change things. Everyone is leaving, it's a hopless situation.

    Advice to Management

    Abolish CAFE (a Cox flavorted SAFE). Please learn how to delegate and let the talented employees accomplish something.

    Pros

    Lunchroom with snacks, benefits good

    Cons

    Led on with chances for growth but it’s not “easy” and there aren’t many opportunities on a role by role basis of course.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t play favorites, especially when supervisors over share coworkers medical info -

    I have been working at vAuto full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Training, resources, help, care for employees, EXTREMELY low turnover, no micromanaging, completely involved and actually concerned with the success of each employee, and the list goes on

    Cons

    I really can’t think of any besides the grueling hiring process

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing. You’re all the best at what you do and it’s obvious you want everyone to be the best at what they do.
