I have been working at Dealer.com full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Dealer.com cares about its employees, and there are a LOT of great perks that come with working here.

Cons

It seems that most of the perks are aimed at young singles. It would be nice if there was more for families.

    Non-competitive salary, and not for creatively innovating thinkers

    Former Employee - Interactive Designer in Burlington, VT

    I worked at Dealer.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good environment, great emanates, state of the art gym, and they do legitimately try to create a fun culture.

    Cons

    Incredibly dull creative work, innovation stifling restrictions, and management was no help and barely receptive to new ideas or ways to improve product or user experience. The creative and development team is stuck in a very tightly taped box.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Un-tape the box, suck up the existing technical restrictions, and push forward.

    I have been working at Dealer.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) The Cafe - The food is decent (Although the prices are not consistent)
    2) The Leed certified building is nice
    3) Being in Burlington is nice

    Cons

    1) Parking - this is a major issue. Not enough spots and it will be worse in the winter
    2) Cafe - There are no set prices, so it's based on who you are and how large a portion they think you have.
    3) Gym - Nice to have a gym, but there is no time to use it. Over worked
    4) Payment - They grossly under pay their employees based on industry standards and their profits. However, they do boast about their benefits, which many people do not use.
    5) Standards and consistency - There are none. Whether it's how much you have to pay for lunch or who gets what privileges. If management favors you, you will get promoted, extra breaks and other favors, while they look the other way. Promotions seem to be based on subjective reasoning. They don't look at skills, experience or even if you have a good personality. I believe management continues to hire more of the same because they don't want their own jobs to be threatened.
    6) The this side and that side of the building. There is a distinct divided between the two sides of the company and it's based on how much you earn.
    7) Dealer.com claims they have low turn over, but that is not accurate. They don't talk about all the people that have quit or that they have fired. If you look at the data, it's staggering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would to be objective when hiring people. Stop acting self-righteous and belittling your front lines. Many of the current managers were hired because they were in the right place at the right time. It wasn't about their college degrees or experience, because most don't have them.

    Change the company around and start setting some standards. I know Dealer.com is trying to avoid the corporate environment, but as you grow, you cannot avoid all the ways of the corporate culture.
