I have been working at Auto Trader UK full-time for less than a yearPros
Joined AutoTrader after leaving my previous employer of 10 years and I could not have been happier with my choice. Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful throughout the Resourcing process all the way to the 3 day induction in the Peak district which was an amazing experience and a lovely way to introduce all the new starters to the company values. Every day in the office is exciting and I get to work with some really talented individuals that challenge me to become better in what I do.Cons
Coming from a very processed led environment and quite a risk averse culture it took me sometime to get used to the new ways of working. AutoTrader is not hierarchical at all so everyone is encouraged to take personal responsibility and make improvements irrespective of their position in the business. So I had to make an adjustment in the way I operate at work and learn to talk more openly about my ideas and take initiative.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Make sure you shout more about what a great company we are. Before I joined I did not know what a great place to work Auto Trader is. And the new offices are state of the art!RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
