Fun people, poor compensation, highly poltical envirnment
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 23, 2015
This is a company that can't get out of its own way. They were in the right place at the right time during the late 90's dot-com boom but they're struggled to mature out of this initial success.
It's a company with moderate intelligence, conservative values, and good enough SEO for the moment that they can survive some sloppy decision making. If you know how to play political games and manage perceptions well then you'll succeed here.
AutoAnything is kind of like a flailing teenager that has the potential to be really great in about 5-10 years, but there's a lot of growing up that still has to happen and a lot of childish habits that need to be outgrown.
Dress is pretty casual, which is nice, except on Mondays you have to dress in the AutoZone (parent company) uniform. At meetings you have to do a chant about what a great company AutoZone is while spelling A-U-T-O-Z-O-N-E with you body (like the YMCA dance).
They make an effort to do small fun things like breakfast every Friday, parking lot BBQs, and heath competitions.
Overall, it's not horrible, but don't confuse success with maturity.
free friday breakfast, AutoZone discounted stock purchasing
don't keep up with market compensation, inexperienced leadership
