    I have been working at Kelley Blue Book full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse.
    Decent Salary
    Good Location

    Cons

    Very old-school thinking.
    Everything is focused on monetization. The user experience suffers too much because of it.
    Not willing to take risks at all. Too fearful of breaking business model

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Competitors. They are really outpacing us in everything.
