Embracing diversity and inclusion

At CDK Global, we are working to implement and maintain programs that help assure our success in embracing the similarities and differences of people, cultures and ideas. As a company we believe that diversity, inclusion and community investment are fundamental to our culture and core values of fostering an innovative, collaborative and high-energy work environment. Our overall objective is to create an inclusive and socially reflective organization that enables CDK Global to compete effectively in the global marketplace. We are keenly focused on innovation and believe that diversity, inclusion and community investment sit at the root of innovation.

CDK’s Corporate Responsibility Council is comprised of senior executives who guide their respective business units and functional areas by implementing and sustaining successful diversity, inclusion and community investment. Representatives meet quarterly to discuss progress on initiatives and ways to strengthen our commitment to diversity, inclusion and community investment.

One of our commitments to diversity and inclusion is our company-sponsored Business Resource Groups (BRGs).

Our BRGs include African-American, Pan-Asian, Hispanic, LGBTQ, Millennials, Veterans, Virtual employees and Women.

At CDK, you'll engineer the next generation of enterprise class software solutions. You’ll also get the chance to solve business problems, network with fellow industry professionals, access continuous learning opportunities as a mentor and mentee, and attend meet-ups to experience trends, new platforms and best practices.

    I have been working at CDK Global full-time (More than a year)


    Pay is alright

    Great place to get your foot in the door

    Coworkers and direct management provide a friendly atmosphere and laid back environment as opposed to a stressful one

    Company provides some fun engagement, such as food truck fridays and bagel mondays


    Upper management is incredibly out of touch with lower level employee culture and needs

    Benefits have gotten worse

    Job security feels at an all time low, anyone could go any time - quite possibly due to being replaced by outsourcing their position to India

    Internal process changes have let to a massive shift in how things are done and even after several months have left the majority of employees feeling uncomfortable with it

    Many employees have left the company already citing these specific reasons, but pleas continue to fall on deaf ears - I believe this trend will continue.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending you care about low level employees and value their opinions because over time it has become increasingly clear you do not, rather you will do whatever it takes to achieve the best numbers possible to placate shareholders.
