Pros

The Culture. Everyone here wants to be here and knows a lot about different things. It is a very good place to work if you want to be able to try an improve the company, they are very receptive of feedback and changes. Good benefits, perks and technology.

Cons

I heard they pay lower than industry standard and only do percentage pay increases once you have started, no large jumps for promotions.

    Pros

    It feels good to work at a company doing well, with customers who want your business. Personally, I have always felt that if I do my best, I get supported.

    Having ADP has been great in terms of investment. We've gotten rid of tons of old code in the last few years, and it just keeps getting better.

    We're doing some of the coolest stuff out there, most people just don't know about it because it's automotive-specific.

    A good work/life balance. Lots of folks with young families.

    Cons

    Sometimes so much to do leads to distractions and re-prioritization.

    Not having a consumer-friendly name means it's harder for people to understand what we do, in terms of recruiting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please invest in more bullish marketing. In an industry so loaded with folks to talk a good talk, we need to sound stronger to the market about how awesome we are.

    Pros

    A group of innovative and highly skilled individuals collaborate and regularly deliver best of class solutions. Their perseverance and dedication drives an engine that powers 10000 sites on a single, unified platform, and every day is an opportunity to learn a new skill or technique.

    Cons

    Legacy code intertwines with cutting-edge features and approaches, deadlines remain hard though implementations evolve, and innovation often is stifled by reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a priority for everyone to spend time enhancing and innovating in an area of their choice, free of the bounds of architecture, client deliverables and timelines. What may be born as a result is likely to surprise, excite, and pay off.
