    Advice to Management

    Owner should pay more attention to what his management team is doing to exploit the goodwill of their subordinates. What once was great place to work has turned into a stressful and hostile pass the buck environment to avoid disiplinary actions. Management has created a feeling of learned helplessness in the employee's jobs to accompany their decline in pay.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Good pedigree
    -Well organized
    -Focus on continuous improvement for the customer

    Cons

    -Poor commission structure
    -No room for advancement
    -Poor management
    -No concern for employee welfare

    Advice to Management

    Take a more human look at the way you pay employees and perhaps you will retain more of them. It is evident that the company care for its clients, but the treatment of employees is sub par.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Pays well
    -Can make friends in the work place

    Cons

    -The hours at Park Place are horrible and long
    -No good channels of promotion. Most people in upper management have either been there forever or are placed there from outside.
    -Can't take ownership of your own job and improve
    -Upper level employees can be condescending
    -Management either has no policies or does not follow them. If there is a problem no one knows the procedure for dealing with it and usually gets botched.
    -The car dealership world can bring about sketchy environments

    Advice to Management

    Put down policies and procedures so that everyone is on the same page and make sure you follow them.
