    Company is growing with lots of opportunities . . . management is so last century.

    I have been working at Dealertrack Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is firmly established as a one-stop shop for automotive retailing software. Anyone who buys a car today in the US or Canada will most likely use their software or services. The company's CEO is vertical integration wizard practicing A&D (Acquire and Develop) to really deliver value to shareholders and customers. From a high-level view this company is poised for exciting growth over the next few years.The acquisition of Dealer.com should help increase the company's bottom line. Work/life balance is a great benefit of working here. The work environment is good and will get better with a new state-of-the art facility being built nearby.

    Cons

    The current management system is an antique of the last century. Acquired companies get wrapped up in red tape and a lot of the company's net income has been been re-invested in non-value producing positions that increase bureaucracy and impede future growth. Generally, the company's internal management is risk averse and most people work in silos. Trust is a big issue with management describing itself as 'needs improvement but above industry average.' This is a terrible admission of settling for mediocrity. Many managers were promoted from the tech ranks and do not have proper training to be good managers. Location of the office is an issue because of it's proximity to New York City where most of the technology talent the company needs prefers to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Required reading:
        a -- Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg's book "How Google Works"
        b -- Eric Ries' book "Lean Startup"
    2) Hire the best people. Take pains in doing so.
    3) Empower the best people you hire and get out of their way.
    4) Trim out waste and promote those who can lead and serve effectively.
