It was an important time of growth in my life and I'm proud to have worked for such a stand up company.

Pros

The pay is excellent and they give you the tools you need to get the job done. The greatest hurdle to overcome in sales is generally yourself, they do pretty well on taking care of the others.

Cons

They had a hard time during layoffs and reorganization - everyone was lost.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to stay open to what the little man in the company is saying; they make it move.

    I worked at AutoTrader

    Pros

    AutoTrader is part of the COX family and has amazing benefits as a result. Pay is fair based on industry and geographic averages. They throw lots of parties, have plenty of prizes to give away, and are pretty flexible when it comes to work/life balance.

    Cons

    They have meetings to plan meetings and Managers attend these meetings to appear as if they are hard at work. Systems & Reporting were (when I was there) a joke. To be fair, this was probably as a result of the accelerated growth of the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great company, pleasant work environment, excellent work-life balance, great achievement reward, great location, available transportation from the train/bus station, beautiful building, some nice people

    Cons

    Consultants are excluded of all-employees activities or giveaways or events or parties.
    There is a lack of communication between managers and consultants.
    Consultants have no access to the intranet so there is no way to find out about available internal position until there are posted on the internet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consultants are a large part of the organization and an important part of it. Make them feel welcomed and considered so they can potentially join the company if you need them to. The giveaways and events or parties should be opened to consultants as they work for the company even if it is not on a permanent basis.
