    I worked at Autotrader full-time

    Pros

    A covered parking garage.... that’s about all I can think of.

    Cons

    Management is unbelievable. Do you have a pulse? Can you type and see? Have you poked your nose around enough to the “right” people and expressed interest in management? Then you ready for management! I promise you... I worked my butt off to ensure that whatever my name was on represented the company to the fullest. I went over and beyond to deliver the best for our clients and internal customers. Unfortunately, I was not appreciated and overworked. It is so sad, but I am thankful that I was able to get out of this toxic environment and go to a company that sincerely loves and listens to their employees! At Autotrader, you’re left to feel like a robot... like you’re replaceable even if you have a wealth of knowledge. To be honest, it is really sad, but nothing is done about it. It is almost as if they sit in a room trying to figure out how to make hard working employees more miserable.

    Advice to Management

    I really do not know what advice I can give that I haven’t already expressed. Products are outdated, the site is outdated, and great employees don’t feel appreciated (which is why they leave, including myself). Working at Autotrader is a game of favoritism, which is filled with closed minded “leaders”. A pay “increase” does not fill the void of feeling unappreciated; it may to some, but not for those that really desire a work life balance.
