    Pros

    Great people to work with. Hires are brought in based on cultural fit, this creates and environment you want to be in.

    Cons

    Benefits are not great and work-life balance can be problematic. Not many holidays off either. You'll learn a lot if this is your first job, but you may be frustrated if you're coming in with experience.

    Pros

    DriveTime has been an awesome company to work for. They are the most transparent and honest company that I have worked for and really care for their employees. The culture around the entire company is very positive and people they hire are well selected.

    Cons

    working in subprime industry can be a litle dishearting sometimes, but they do the best for the customer which justifies it for me.

    I have been working at DriveTime Automotive Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to work with bleeding-edge technologies in an agile workflow. Enjoy the cross-collaboration between the IT teams and the departments we support.

    Culture is laid back, management is continually improving our processes and since the company is growing fast, promotion opportunities are promising.

    Cons

    Very fast work environment can be stressful at times, but if you are up for the challenge it is a lot of fun.
    Happy with our compensation plan/benefits - but would enjoy a little more down time in the form of PTO, flex or weekly work from home options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ray Fidel has changed this company from a used car dealer to a technology company that focuses in selling cars. Continue to make this a great place for the top minds in the field.

    Pros

    The best part about this job is our ability to make a difference in how we do things that can make the company more profitable while allowing individuals to have opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    There are sometimes mixed messages from upper management that can cause confusion on what is important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to stay competitive on salaries and benefits as the job landscape changes. It is likely that some good people will pursue other opportunities if they don't feel that they are being taken care of. With the economy beginning to show signs of turning around, more opportunities will be available.
