    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Autotrader full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexible work if you are in the right dept. Pay is above average.

    Cons

    Operations division has no direction and chases every dime. Teams will work until midnight at the end of the month. Lack of strategic decision-making ability across all levels and various departments. Technically very far behind the industry standards. The replacement CEO and President are not visionary or motivational.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your long term growth, not the month over month collection. Focus a bit more on your high performing team members and heed the direction and advice from the front line employee.
