Featured Review
"Great Tech Team"Dec 12, 2020

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at TrueCar full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Strong tech team, great people & talent, collaborative culture, modern stack, relatively clean & quality code, good pay, great perks with unlimited PTO, cell phone & internet credit,... Grubhub credit.

Cons

Tough industry, dealers are difficult to please while trying to do the best for our users.

Advice to Management

We need to focus on what matters and avoid distractions. We are doing the right things, we just need to stay focused.

Current Employee - Current Employee

I have been working at Core Digital Media full-time for less than a year

Pros

Excellent work life balance with unlimited PTO, understanding colleagues, and we are even encouraged to take time off while working remote to rest and relax. Culture is huge here and it really shows... with the CEO checking in on people individually during COVID-19 when we all went remote. Co-workers, referred to as Team Members here are friendly, welcoming, and bond with one another easily despite not working together or being in the same department. The CEO Jeff, is really transparent (one of the company's core values) with the company's vision, goals, and how the business is doing overall. He truly cares about his employees and values their opinion.

Cons

Nothing major sticks out at the moment.

Advice to Management

Keep up the transparency.
