Advice to ManagementAdvice

I was working at ABTL during the Riesenbach era so I can't really comment on current management. I hope the best for everyone still there. I think overall, investors and employees have been equally screwed my management.

    Pros

    Learning experiences within a turnaround are invaluable provided you can get over the difficult working conditions. Also if the business can reverse their fortunes there are opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Working within a turn around can be difficult. Also one must understand you are walking into a situation where the organization is broken and it will be more difficult to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new management team seems to be on the right track. The key is to have a few focused objectives, provide transparency toward rank and file employees. Lastly work to remove the red tap that had hampered the business in the past and make the organization more nimble.

    I have been working at Autobytel

    Pros

    The location is convenient to all of Orange County. The facilities are adequate. The technology employees are great to work with, as they are smart, motivated, interesting people. Right now, they are a very small company, so you could probably effect a lot of change.

    Cons

    Website is old version of cold fusion. Some Delphi code is still heavily in use. Management seems to be anti open source. No celebrations for delivering major products. Cumbersome Sarbanes-Oxley compliance tools. The Auto industry in general is hurting. There has been only 1 raise in 4 years. More and more of the bonus is "company performance" instead of "personal performance." I had an incredibly difficult time getting promotions for engineers with 10+ years experience to Senior Engineer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat technology with respect as technology is what enables the company to operate.
