    Pros

    It's all about the culture here. Our greatly admired CEO,Trevor, once said, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast" (or something very like that). This shift in mentality from our leadership team has transformed Auto Trader from a good place to work into a GREAT place to work. The world of opportunity literally opened up for me when I joined Auto Trader and in the last 18 months the team here have kicked it on to a whole new level. If you are inquisitive, thoughtful, passionate and have a real desire to make a difference then this could be the place for you. At Auto Trader the more you put in, the more you get back and yet there is never a sense of having to stay late just to be seen to be working hard. Here it's all about quality of output. There is a wealth of learning, training and personal improvement to help you achieve you ambitions and with a product portfolio like theirs, Auto Trader has lots of varied opportunity so you wont get bored!

    Cons

    If you are after fancy titles and a really structured, obvious career ladder to climb, you may find it a bit bewildering. The org structure is very flat but that doesn't mean you cannot develop and earn well if you are successful. Other than that, there is just a lot to do, all the time, so coasters beware!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to be really bold and don't let the message get diluted.

    I have been working at Auto Trader UK full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are definitely the highlight of the job, passionate about their work but also fun people to be around. New Manchester offices have a nice atmosphere with some great facilities (Some greenery wouldn't go amiss though!) and it's great to be in the city. I feel there's a lot of opportunity for growth, be it in my current team or in a new one, and offsite training can also be provided

    Cons

    Cafeteria was promised to be subsidised however this did not happen and complaints seem to have fallen on deaf ears
    Cost of travel has unfortunately increased threefold due to Manchester move; extra mileage and no longer free car parking (Accompanied by longer travel times :/ )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up great events like the employee conference and general demeanour. Some city center orientated benefits would be great and also juice machines for the kitchens
