Former Employee - Manager

I worked at Edmunds.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- line level employees, some departments promote great company culture.
- lots of perks
- home office is in a beautiful location
- happy hours, company picnics, lots of free food

Cons

- politics are especially bad here, worse than previous employers I've worked for.
- pay is below market in most cases
- the owner is rude and socially challenged.
- have personally witnessed stuff written on conference room walls that denigrated other religions. Definitely seem to favor/be more lenient with those employees who are of their own religion.
- ROWE was very poorly executed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Get rid of ROWE. It causes more damage than good.
- Please make some decisions and follow through. Too often does Edmunds throw a bunch of ideas that are parboiled against the wall and see if anything sticks. The product team is victim of this. The Sales team pays the most dearly for this.

    Pros

    There is always a party at Edmunds. Like a true dotcom it is laid back and fun. The people are nice and the atmosphere is great. Work hard, play hard is basically the philosophy of Edmunds.

    Cons

    Horrible pay! They try to make up for the crappy pay with all of the perks given. Most people work at Edmunds- gain experience- then move on to one of LA's better paying dotcoms. Another awful thing about Edmunds is the owner. He walks around miserable and rude. When he walks into a room- everything goes grey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to keep Peter out of people's way. Where are the commercials that were filmed? Cars.com and other competitors have been on TV- spread the word about the amazing website you run!

    Pros

    ROWE (Results Only Work Environment)
    Compensation and Benefits

    Even though Work Life Balance is great cause of ROWE sometimes there are days where you end up working a lot and other days where you dont have much to do
