Pros

Cars.com is the type of company where you can learn about the online ad business, meet smart, down to earth people and grow your career

Cons

The highest levels of management have been there since day one -- that provides plenty of institutional knowledge but at the same time hold the company back because many leaders know nothing but life at Cars.

Advice to Management

Look to solve problems through efficiency versus adding more people.

    Pros

    Tons of advancement opportunities. They've worked hard in the last couple of years to get up to industry standard pay ranges but still offer incredible work life balance. A very fun and collaborative environment.

    Cons

    The pace can be a little slow at times. While they are trying to get away from it, there is a bit of a meeting culture here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, the new flexible work and work from home programs are great

    Good company to work for as long as you are not a victim of upper management politics

    Pros

    - Good people to work with for most part
    - Good work-life balance
    - Good career pathing even when it comes to inter-department transfers
    - Great company culture, last friday parties and a fun environment

    Cons

    - Low salaries
    - Weak upper management
    - Frequent reorgs that leaves people confused and hinders career growth and momentum. I am speaking specifically from my experience in product department which re-orgd 3 times within one year and they way it was executed was terrible (people thrown in different roles and teams without being consulted)
    - Employees are treated like a herd of cattle and roles are now being defined in way that makes an employee feel like they are easily replaceable. It wasnt necessarily the case before.

    Advice to Management

    - Upper management should take a stand and question new executives who are changing things around drastically without knowing in and outs of the company
    - Employees are not replaceable, so dont treat them like assembly line workers
    - If you say they are family, treat them like one and dont throw them out once you are done using them.
