I worked at AutoTrader full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

great compensation, company parties, company perks, work at home days

Cons

So much red tape it takes 6 months to make the simplest code or product change. Middle management is not empowered to make any decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower leaders, cut out the red tape, be innovative. You've had the same ugly home page and search process for 10 years. Yes it works but it could be better.

    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.
