    I have been working at Autotrader full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    training opportunities, personal development, relaxing and fun place to work. truly enjoy working with my co-workers. Made some good friends at the company over the years. Great benefits with pension.

    Cons

    company getting too big too fast, wasn't able to build up architecture to scale with that growth.
    adding more corporation standards to reduce some of the fun things. I guess its kind of expected as we get bigger.

    Advice to Management

    keep investing in knocking out the tech debt. it has gotten better in the past 1.5 years and it needs to stay as an every year focus!

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, working hard to stay in front of competition. Being trailblazers and innovative. Flexibility and work life balance. Tele-commute option.

    Cons

    You have to be comfortable with change. So it's not really a con due to the fact that change brings growth.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain communication, to make sure everyone is on the same page.

    I worked at Autotrader as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    While at Autotrader, one of the biggest pros was the people I worked with. The culture is spectacular and they try to keep up with the latest technologies and practices. There are also opportunities to cross-train and learn new things. One work from home day.

    Cons

    For cons, there is not much to say. In my time at Autotrader I did not have a dislike about the company.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to set up a growth plan with each individual. By finding out where someone wants to go with their career can really help keep individuals at Autotrader.
