    Pros

    Start up, SaaS, never a dull moment when you deal with auto dealers. Senior leadership was amazing, all in a positive way.

    Cons

    Never really solved our problem of engaging custoemrs post sale. The accounting department was always struggling with collections, payroll, or just communicating with sales and engagement. Lots of issues with a final solution of software that should have been a one stop solution...but really had to be supported with otehr solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay away from software nerds designing what they think a dealer wants.

    Pros

    There are non...Company is going under.

    Cons

    The ego of one man DRB single handed screwed the company by choosing to building the site for customers that the company didn't have versus making the site better and keeping the paying customers. This came for the mouth of your team Genius.

    Pros

    The possibility for what the company could become is the only drawl here, though you find out real quick that the likely hood of this start up succeeding are slim.

    Cons

    Favoritism by management. Management has no experience managing others and it shows in the performance of the employees. All stress with zero reward. They lie and tell you that the compensation is worth it at this start up, but in the end, no one hits the unrealistic goals set by management; therefore, no one makes any $. They allow for employees to utilize and eat up there rolodex with lies about a product that does not do what they say and once your rolodex is used up, they are done with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your management staff and improve your customer service, so you can stop receiving so many cancellations.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Dealermatch as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Before the company was recently obliterated on Aug. 1, 2014 due to the corporate consolidation of all Cox Automotive companies, the work-life balance was quite good.

    Cons

    Sub-par Rails programmers. Despite having fanatic adherents to pair programming practices and a supposed, self-proclaimed "architect", the core product would frequently have serious production defects negatively impacting our customers. Build failures happened daily in the continuous integration environment. Generally, the ones who decided to accept the move to Manheim are the poorer performers and I'd be very cautious about hiring them for future projects...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    C-Level management (i.e. "GPS") was good, but engineering leadership was always sub-par, as described in "Cons."

    Pros

    Thinking hard of the pros, but having trouble. Issued stock that matures in 36 months so hopes of things developing with a positive outcome.

    Cons

    Sales management does not have management experience and it shows in the leadership. No collaboration amongst sales teams. The leadership consist of "go sell, what did you sell, what will you sell" The commission payout is built around numbers that 1) have not been achieved consistently over a 60 day period, 2) the rolling average of the entire team is not at the payout levels 3) discard the top performer and the worst performer and the average is still not at the payout they want you to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Survey your team (survey monkey) and get a better understanding of what they feel

    Pros

    The leadership invests in people and tools to help employees get work done fast. Concern for people is evident throughout the company. The overall culture is very supportive and recognized professional and personal balance or achievement.

    Cons

    Always changing work environment and evolving processes stress people who are not flexible and willing to change. Can be confusing because the start up nature of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture based on what you have already established. Leadership needs to return to the customer touching team associates to really understand that vision and reality sometimes clash.

    Pros

    Fun, friendly, efficient, free healthy snacks such as fruits and nuts, helpful peers and members that want to see you excel, not steal your work.

    Cons

    A little more than hectic at time. There are some company politics that impede the goal of the company as well. If you're good with offixe

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to alleviate company politics so that efficient practices can flourish and deadlines can be met. I know this isn't any different from what any one else says,but worth a shot.
