Current Employee - Performance Management Consultant
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.
Management has absolutely no respect for it employees, neither collectively nor individually. Most employees work in a 4 ft square cubical. Felt like a sweat shop environment. Extreme employment... turnover. Management behind closed doors had no respect for clients or prospects. Management lack morals.
Advice to Management
Learn that your employees are your biggest asset. Treat them as professionals. Stop tapping employee phones to listen to conversations. Develop an education and trading program. Give the employees a... work space that is humanistic.
