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.

Great atmosphere. Flexible schedule, lots of snacks, swag, a premium product that proves daily how it's changing the world. The thing is working here isn't easy. Other reviews have said they have... a lot of turnover. While it is relatively true, the reason is for that is it is a lot of cold calling, a lot 10 hour days, and many other things others have said in their reviews. But I don't view those things as negative. The fact is you find out what you're made of and how thick your skin is. I have grown more in the almost two years I have been at Podium than I had in the rest of my professional career.
Sometimes it seems as though management wants butts in seats regardless of whether or not that time spent in the seat is valuable. Having territories that are east coast it doesnt make sense for me... to be here after 5pm

Keep it up.
