I have been working at AutoTrader full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good employees are constantly recognized and rewarded.
Great hours (8:30 AM - 5:30 PM)

Cons

Working in a regional offices often makes me feel forgotten. The environment is drab with generic office decor while the HQ is a cool, lively, and unique environment.
It's oddly quiet. There are times where the only sound that you here is the tapping on keyboards for minutes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget the people out in the field.

    Pros

    Good product that is easy to use

    Cons

    The middle management is a joke in south Florida. The woman I worked for was completely unstable and acted like she was ready to explode every time she would talk. She would call daily and say"where my money" The way she would motivate her staff was to say that office depot was hiring if you don't like it here. This manager went with me to meet a GM about why we raised his rates 25%. when he said he didn't want to resign she began to whine like a child and kept saying "I'm worth it" Finally the dealer asked he to leave. I had to return to riveter a cell phone and he gave me his sympathy that I had to work with such a wacko. The turn over is constant and support from corporate is non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you have a good product that is the only reason you are still in business. It certainly is not how you run the company.

    I worked at AutoTrader full-time (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.
