    Pros

    Great, Friendly, People! Lots of opportunity for career advancement or movement within the company. I love the casual work environment and easy commute for me down the 5 freeway; I live 20 miles north and I can get to work in less than 30 minutes! Management listens to new ideas and they really care about their employees and their customers. Compared to larger corporations, where you get lost in the shuffle or go unnoticed for a job well done, DealerSocket recognizes great work.

    Cons

    We're in three buildings which can sometimes be inconvenient. We'll be moving to a single building soon! Yay!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the Great work!!! You guys Rock!

    Pros

    DealerSocket has great leaders that actively engaged in the day-to-day, really care about their employees, ethical, open door policy and fun. DealerSocket is know for its Culture which has been formed by the leaders and continued by the people we have added. Almost 80% of employees come from referrals. Half of the current employees have been with company over 2 years and 25% have been with company over 4 years which should tell you people like to work here. DealerSocket is also know for its Superior Product in the industry.

    Cons

    As with any startup there are growth issues, not a clear define advancement ladder but advance comes to people who are successful and hard working. Majority of promotions come from within as needs arise. As the company grows space has also been an issue but has improved now they have 2 buildings and in future are moving into a larger building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep us informed of company's results, current plan, and future goals. Have another all employee gathering.

    Pros

    They are awesome people to work with a challenging and exciting work environment, huge learning and professional growth opportunities and good pay.

    Cons

    There are very few things I would say that I don't like about dealer socket, they are fair to their employees. There is a lot of travel and they expect you to really work so if you don't want a real job then work at some paper pushing corporate mess.

    Pros

    DealerSocket is the most friendly and ethical company I have ever worked for! From the top management through every position... it is just fun and challenging! If you like to learn and be treated fairly -- this is the place!

    Cons

    Growth pains... which are also opportunities. We are growing fast and it creates a ton of opportunities as well as some challenges that are hard to figure out (which actually makes it fun for me)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Benefits include reward points for airlines, hotels and car rental companies.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for growth in the company. This is kind of a dead end job unless you are a favorite of upper management.

    Pros

    -There have been a lot of opportunities to grow with this company. As it has gotten larger.
    -The new building is very nice.
    -Bagel Fridays
    -Allowed to wear shorts.
    -CEO is a great guy who anyone would be happy to work for.

    Cons

    -Being a very quickly growing company there are a lot of people in management/ executive positions who do not have the skill sets required for those positions. Which has lead to quite a few bad processes and micro managing.
    -HR is unapproachable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Try to bring benefits up to par with other similar companies in the area. You always tell us how you want to be the #1 desired place to work in Orange county but your benefits and insurance plans are lacking.
    -There are several "favorites" in the company that get special treatment which is very visible to everyone else in the company and it leads to low morale.

    Pros

    Opportunities to advance, you manage your own time and schedule once in a territory, good pay when you take into account the quarterly bonus structure which can be up to 10% of your base salary paid out every quarter, great company culture, paid relocation, generous annual raise as long as you are performing, family oriented company.

    Cons

    Mid-size company that is struggling to overcome their "start up" way of doing things. Experiencing tremendous growth which they are struggling to keep up with as a result everyone is stretched pretty thin. With the increased growth they are more desperate for bodies, as a result they seem to have lowered their hiring standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing so far it is working. Also, be a little bit more picky about who you hire. There are a ton of new hires that haven't panned out, or they are still with us but performing poorly, and it's affecting our business.
