Current Employee - Product Manager in Atlanta, GA

I have been working at AutoTrader full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Management is very transparent. Company culture is strong and aligned with company values. Generous compensation. Senior management is extremely visible and very involved. Acceptance and implementation of good company traditions is high.

Cons

Advanced training not available to everyone. No college partnership programs that I'm aware of. Work life balance is good, but could be better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe that there should be bigger investments in the growth and training for AutoTrader.com's existing employees. If someone exhibits the drive and work ethic there should be no limitations to that person's access to company provided, relevant training. It has been said that AutoTrader.com's secret to success is its people, therefore, its people should be its biggest investment.

    Pros

    Sales team works from home office-when not in meetings, attending seminars, etc.

    Cons

    Favoritism, Management expects you to be dishonest to Dealers in order to squeeze more money from them, you'll get fired if you don't make your sales goal-I've seen many talented people fired! Or, the territory gets switched around so you have no prospects, past due A/R accounts that go against you, no chance to succeed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chip Perry, please focus on the West Coast and look in to the practices going on here! You have lost some great employees & probably wonder why Dealers are cancelling!
