Featured Review

Current Employee - Performance Management Consultant

I have been working at CDK Global full-time for less than a year

Pros

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

Cons

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.

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Confluent full-time for more than a year

Pros

Engineering-focused mindset all the way to the top means silly corporate issues aren't suffered Our leadership likes making fun of anonymous questions about 'not important' issues like whether we... should have a dress code or not, and frankly I love it. It's a breath of fresh air to hear things like "hey, maybe we should focus doing the things that will make us successful" - and not done in a whip-cracking way at all but instead in a way that fosters a real desire to just do better work and create more value for all of us. Absolutely exceptional engineering talent. It's incredible to work with not only our executives but also the stellar engineering, product, data-focused, and frankly anyone at the firm. Pretty much everyone you meet is an expert in something.

Cons

Growing this fast is always tough, but we're still managing to do it pretty gracefully in my experience.

Advice to Management

Stay true to the engineering-minded principles that have gotten you this far and things should stay great. Don't be afraid to let people go if they're really starting to lose sight of that or hold... us back.
