I have been working at Autobytel full-time (More than 5 years)
Fun collaborative environment, work with smart people who are passionate about creating great products. Flexible work schedule, generous bonus, breakfast on Fridays, Holiday meals, and frequent employee events.
Offices are in an older building, however we are close to John Wayne Airport which is nice.
Advice to Management
None. Management is doing a fantastic job.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Autobytel in March 2010.
A basic review of my resume with emphasis on length of time with each of my previous employers and my reason for leaving. Then questions regarding experience, knowledge, and skills in the industry and the market in question.

Reasons for Declining
My research regarding Autobytel found four instances since 2006 that the top management in the company had been terminated and replaced.

Top management employment churn with losses exceeding revenues is not an environment to bet your career future on. There are far too many other companies to go to work for that can provide a much better career path than misery!
