Great if you just want a job without career advancement
Product Data Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: free friday breakfast, 401k (if you can spare it), peers
Cons: low compensation, no appreciation, favoritsm
Middle management cares, but no matter how hard your manager tries for you, their decisions are overruled by the stingy upper management who cares more about making money and appearances than their employees.

Lots of activities, but after a while, you start feeling like you're a child being catered to. The activities become extremely childish and is – more... just there to supposedly boost your morale. In the end, low morale still wins.

If you're thinking of moving up in this company and expecting higher pay, think again. Your best effort means nothing. In the beginning, you'll feel like you're at a great company, but after a year or two there, you'll start understanding why morale is low.

Because AutoAnything is too cheap to pay people with actual skills to fill positions in specific departments, there are a lot of lateral transfers from one department to another. This creates a problem because being familiar with the company and its products does not mean one possesses the skills to do what one was originally hired at the company for. Training becomes difficult and patience runs thin.

The only best part of the job are the peers. They're the only ones who will keep you sane, but of course, upper management won't like that because boosting one another's morale is ruining their image.

If you're just looking for a paycheck, this company is great for you. If you want to receive better compensation, seek a job elsewhere. AutoAnything will let their employees go if they find a higher paying job elsewhere. They will not try to match it, thus a lot of great employees have been released.

Mandatory 5 hours overtime each week. It's supposed to be optional, but, if you don't work your 5 hours OT, it'll be brought up during your review and frowned upon. This is their way of giving them more for less. Sure, you get double & a half, but those extra hours will take a toll on you.

AutoAnything does not trust their employees, so be aware of your surroundings and what you do. – less

AA is Ok when you need a job
Product Data Specialist/Analyst (Former Employee), San Diego, CaJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: your peers on your team, talking about cars
Cons: slow moving processes, low compensation, merit increases are around 4%, not properly recognizing good employees, frozen milk.
AutoAnything is a great place to work when you...

A: Need a job
B: Have roommates and/or spouse that is paid more.
C: Have a 2nd job
D: Work in a favorable department in addition to B or C.

The perks aren't bad and they vary by department. Customer service loves to feed their team, and other teams may just provide donuts and coffee from time to time. – more... Beware of the frozen milk that is served on Friday breakfast!

When you start thinking about your future, and career it becomes highly frustrating. A data specialist job is not very visible outside of a few companies, and for a majority of companies this role is considered to be a 'data analyst', or in some cases a form of product management. Which of course means a higher pay scale.

The people are great and you end up creating bonds to support each other. Management is so-so, decision making is slow and in desperate need of innovation.

A typical work week is 45 hours, it doesn't seem like much at first until you have other obligations outside of work. – less
