I worked at Dealertrack Technologies full-time

Pros

Good benefits. Relaxed, casual atmosphere. Great coworkers. Pretty flexible with hours. If your field is not technologically based I would recommend Dealertrack.

Cons

Dealertrack is not a technology company. They acquire technology companies. Technological decisions are made by management and not by the engineers. Bad practices/solutions will be decided on by management and will be implemented by technology, Not a fun place if you like being creative or designing the best solutions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave the engineering to the engineers.

    Pros

    It is possible to get back on track in this company but leadership change is required.

    Cons

    We used to be a product focused, dealer oriented company and in a year we have become a sloppy, unresponsive and unmotivated software team. Product and development used to be partners. We used to develop features that made sense to the inventory market. We were innovative and passionate. Now it's just a job. There is no leadership that understands our customer and understands what our dealers need to succeed. Now our competitors benefit from listening to and learning from those that used to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get back to who we were. Let's get back to being focused on what our customers want and need to run their businesses. Let's quit chasing the quick win and focus on being the best in the spaces we are in.

    Extremely HORRIBLE! This is a "good old boy club" at the TOP! There are some original employees that RULE the business.

    Pros

    DealerTrack has attracted some extremely good employees - They've also LOST a significant amount of these GOOD employees, due to the "work horse" style and burn out factor... This is the worst company to work for.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership - HORRIBLE!
    "DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO" mentality
    They will dismiss you at the snap of a finger --- Longevity (or a career) is NOT like to happen!
    Some SENIOR leaders are bow to the demands of other "LEADERS" because they too are fearful of losing their status.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
