What Employees Say
I have been working at CDK Global full-time for less than a year
The entire hiring and onboarding experience is so well organized. At no point did I ever feel like they were anything but happy to be talking to me. The training is great. Not only is there a... course for anything you could need, but every employee is more than willing to help, including managers. There's never been a feeling of being below or less than anyone else. Not something that I have ever been accustomed to in my entire working life. All in all, there is nothing that they haven't thought of and covered and made easily accessible. Communication is great. My manager has made sure that everyone in the team is aware of what is going on across the board. I know exactly where I stand and I feel valued. In my experience, this is a rarity in jobs. The benefits are excellent and you're eligible for them from the date of hire! No waiting 30-60-90 days to go to the doctor. If something happens and you need to be out sick you've got PTO so you're not losing part of your paycheck because of circumstances you can't control. I've never seen a company so well organized, so well run, and with genuine integrity. Far and away the best job I have ever had
The online training courses can be difficult to search, find, and navigate
Advice to Management
It would be great to give employees a free trip to a CDK office of their choice in another country or even region if they so choose. While that would be extremely fun, I am aware that this may be a... bit of a stretch. So, other than that just keep doing what you're doing because it's great to feel as valued as an employee as a client is valued by the company.

- Very good company culture - Frequent team buildings - Free fruits, free lunch, free gym membership - The salaries are very competitive, compared to other companies in the Central/Eastern... European region. - Everyone is very smart - Possible to get generous raises if someone works well - One free conference visit each year (you can visit the USA, Canada, Korea, Japan, etc.) - Company phone after one year - Possible to get company car, but only after 3 years and for selected leaders. - Unique virtual share program (most companies in this geographical area don't give out shares to coworkers) - The number of in-company trainings are on the raise, free Python, C++ trainings. If you complete the CUDA or the AI courses (self learning in your freetime), you can get a raise. - Flexible time (10:00-15:00 base time, other time flexible) - Some products of the company reached or will soon reach mass production, so there is a chance that it will really play big in the automotive market
- Self driving is obviously a risky area, in the worst case you have to find a new job after a few years (no big deal for me) - The virtual share program is too risky, because if you leave the... company or you are fired before the company is sold, you loose all your shares - Not all workers can see their career path clearly - The company car seems to be reachable by only a few selected people after 3 years. It would be nice to have well defined steps to get it. - FAANG companies can pay more in some western countries :-)
Advice to Management
- Keep up the good work :) - Probably the career development plan would be a nice plus - I've seen some good juniors switching to other companies in Budapest, I think that it could be prevented by... proactively raising their salary or promising them promotions. - Actively supporting teaching at universities would be nice. I've heard from a colleague, that at a big financial company it actually counts as work. Probably dedicating a few hours each week to teaching would be nice for some people who like to do that.
