2016 Academy

This year's iteration of Summer Camp offered 50+ sessions throughout the 4 days of Academy where employees could learn new skills and have opportunities to grow and develop. Many of these sessions addressed the common themes we saw coming out of our August 2016 round of FUEL Your Potential (our non-traditional performance review process). These sessions included: Presentation Skills, Impromptu Speaking/Thinking on Your Feet, SQL, Data Visualization and Leadership Development. Other sessions offered leveraged the passions of our employees and allowed them opportunities to network and teach each other - Sailing in Marina del Rey, Cheese Tasting and Country Line Dancing, etc.

    I have been working at Edmunds.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Progressive work environment unafraid to challenge archaic Industrial era management practices, strong culture with coherent values and norms (they practice what they preach), a company that exemplifies the attitude that how you treat your employees will be reflected in their work product (treat them better, they'll produce better outcomes for the company)

    Cons

    Low turnover and long tenures can leave new hires feeling like a high school transfer student looking for a place to sit in the lunchroom (even though everyone here is generally friendly and welcoming); anyone more accustomed to a highly structured and process oriented corporate environment may struggle to adapt to the entrepreneurial, outcome oriented mode of operations here that simultaneously makes it such a great place for self-directed and intrinsically motivated individuals

    Advice to Management

    Rally the company behind the imminent paradigm shift in the automotive sector (e.g. autonomous vehicles, ride sharing, etc.) and articulate a clearer vision for the role that will we play in effecting that change so our collective efforts might be imbued with great significance and purpose

    Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Edmunds.com (Santa Monica, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process took a little longer than normal because right after my phone interview they filled the last slot of the open position. However, the recruiter was so nice and said they shoudl be hiring again soon and she would circle back. Sure enough I heard from her a month later, scheduled a skype interview and an in person interview and was offered the job a few days later. Overall it was a great experience. Everyone was so friendly and I really felt welcomed. The final in person interview was a little intimidating because you are interviewed by about 6 different employees including directors, managers, and future co workers, but they were all extremely nice.
