    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.

    I worked at Dealertrack Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is relatively good. Some good products.

    Cons

    Their focus is on acquiring companies that provide solutions to better the dealer body. Though this is a great vision. It is poorly executed and poorly managed. Once the company is acquired the integration of the company within DT is not done properly. There is tons of miscommunication, redundancy of work, and no one really knows what others are doing. Especially if you are a field employee.

    Training is non-existent and management is really out for themselves. Its a shame. I did not feel "at home" here and am glad to have left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on creating a good culture and perhaps turn-over rate won't be as high.

    Pros

    It is possible to get back on track in this company but leadership change is required.

    Cons

    We used to be a product focused, dealer oriented company and in a year we have become a sloppy, unresponsive and unmotivated software team. Product and development used to be partners. We used to develop features that made sense to the inventory market. We were innovative and passionate. Now it's just a job. There is no leadership that understands our customer and understands what our dealers need to succeed. Now our competitors benefit from listening to and learning from those that used to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get back to who we were. Let's get back to being focused on what our customers want and need to run their businesses. Let's quit chasing the quick win and focus on being the best in the spaces we are in.

    Extremely HORRIBLE! This is a "good old boy club" at the TOP! There are some original employees that RULE the business.

    Pros

    DealerTrack has attracted some extremely good employees - They've also LOST a significant amount of these GOOD employees, due to the "work horse" style and burn out factor... This is the worst company to work for.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership - HORRIBLE!
    "DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO" mentality
    They will dismiss you at the snap of a finger --- Longevity (or a career) is NOT like to happen!
    Some SENIOR leaders are bow to the demands of other "LEADERS" because they too are fearful of losing their status.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
