    I have been working at Dealertrack Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love this company and what it has to offer to it's employees. The people are all very friendly and there is a lot of opportunity for growth. They also do a lot of fun team building exercises as well!

    Cons

    SAP system can be a bit of a pain with requesting time off and not much sunlight in the office, but that will all soon change with the new office that is being built :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, I'm very happy with the way things are being ran in my department.

    Pros

    -This company has a chance to rule the DMS world
    -Executives have ambitious vision and are aggressively pursuing it
    -Great products

    Cons

    -Fast growth rate leads to some growing pains
    -Entrepreneurial spirit gets lost in corporate red tape
    -Acquisitive nature leads to some solutions that don't integrate well, causing some customer-facing employee angst

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay closer to your top talent. It's not always the best strategy to bring people in from the outside and have your top brass with very little product knowledge.

    Pros

    A fantastic, ever-changing work environment where the brain power of the people is recognized as our greatest asset. Expansion and growth presents nearly unlimited opportunities to those willing to work for it.

    Cons

    A fantastic, ever-changing work environment which is not the place for anyone who does not embrace change while remaining cognizant of the challenges inherent in a fast moving technology company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constantly seek improvement in yourselves and your ability to manage others through motivating and supporting your team. Some are better than others so keep the best and cull the rest.

    Pros

    Actively seeks employee feedback and acts on suggestions. This is the only company I have worked for that not only commits the resources to poll the employees, but actually does act on suggestions. We have a unique "Jam" session yearly where we have three days to interactively propose topics and join others' discussions. Some recent policies aimed at employee satisfaction have come from these sessions.

    Cons

    Goal setting process is too regimented. Would appreciate having my goals be less reflective on company success, but more tuned to my personal progress which will only help strengthen the organization as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fewer meetings that last over thirty minutes.

    Pros

    CEO treats all team members with respect. Fast paced and high growth an ever changing dynamic company. Senior management does the right thing for team members even when terminations are in order. Compared to other I have worked, DealerTrack is the best!

    Cons

    Aggressive growth creates intense work schedule. More resources needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to encourage the values and principles that have led to the tremendous success of the company to date. Keep up all the communication channels that senior leadership supports and continue to require this lsame depth of communication by leaders deeper in the structure.

    Pros

    DealerTrack gives everyone a fair oppurtunity for growth. They offer great benefits. There is little macro-managing, as long as you come in and do your work you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult for people to get suggestions and advice to upper managment. Occasionally there is a downtime which can make the position a little boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to visit the different locations outside of NY. It's sometimes hard to get a feel for what exactly is going on in different aspects of the company.

    Pros

    Personal Growth is a biggie. They are all about hiring from within when they can, and frankly that's how I got my position. Because of this you are afforded career growth you may not get anywhere else for the experience you have. This is major.
    Large amount of vacation time.

    Cons

    Heath insurance is less than stellar, I miss my PPO plan and now just stuck with an HSA, but it get's the job done I suppose it's not terrible.
    The pay could be better, especially when you look at salaries for your contemporary's in other companies. BUT this is outshined by the fact they are great for growing your carrier. Your almost better off working here for 5 years, moving up as quick as you can, getting all the knowledge and experience you can grab, then moving on for more lucrative opportunities.
    NO PTO ROLLOVER is a biggie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow PTO rollover or payout, when strapped with a large amount of projects it can be hard to take time off, and you wind up loosing your vacation time.
