What are perks and other benefits like at Cars.com?

Pros

Modern workspace next to Union Station, agile development environment, good benefits, work from home options, yearly bonus and merit increase, casual dress, open beer taps.

Cons

Staffing in flux, recent layoffs. Formerly cutting edge in DevOps but the people leading that charge are no longer with the company.

Advice to Management

Properly manage investors' expectations rather than react with cost cutting measures. You will continue to lose your best staff with an atmosphere of uncertainty.

Does Cars.com offer tuition reimbursement?

Pros

Simple work life balance, never had to work weekends or stay late. Easy to get a job, they will higher pretty much anyone straight out of college. Coworkers in other departments are often supportive of helping you learn new skills.

Cons

Low pay, they want highly skilled employees but pay like they are hiring recent college grads. Pervasive culture of abuse, racism, sexism, and homophobia especially within the sales team (AM falls under sales). Often calling black employees by the wrong name, jokes about how gay people are, and constantly upholding sexist standards in the workplace.

Advice to Management

Clean house, you built a culture of racist/sexist bro energy and it is time for a change. Open up internal career growth to employees, inside sales/field sales isn't a promotion it's a career option.

Does Cars.com offer an employee assistance or workplace counselling program?

Pros

- packed with dedicated and passionate employees willing to go the extra mile - internal communication has tremendously improved and we now hear the "why" behind some of the major decisions. big upgrade from the past. -some former leaders are coming back and working really hard to do the right things -more focus, better strategy and clear definition of expectations -our feedback is part of decision making -organization continues to care about employees first and offers competing benefits

Cons

-too many priorities and at times are competing with each other -senior leadership not tactical enough to fully understand all the good and "bad" things that needs to be fixed -heavy focus on shareholder value vs. doing the right thing -accountability still seems to be lacking in many other areas outside of the sales team

Advice to Management

Discipline is key. Our priorities shift from week to week making it really hard to finish certain project on time or fully understand the impact (good or bad). When everything is important, nothing becomes important and we need to stick to a plan that does not change mid week/month.
