    I have been working at CDK Global full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The entire hiring and onboarding experience is so well organized. At no point did I ever feel like they were anything but happy to be talking to me. The training is great. Not only is there a course for anything you could need, but every employee is more than willing to help, including managers. There's never been a feeling of being below or less than anyone else. Not something that I have ever been accustomed to in my entire working life. All in all, there is nothing that they haven't thought of and covered and made easily accessible. Communication is great. My manager has made sure that everyone in the team is aware of what is going on across the board. I know exactly where I stand and I feel valued. In my experience, this is a rarity in jobs. The benefits are excellent and you're eligible for them from the date of hire! No waiting 30-60-90 days to go to the doctor. If something happens and you need to be out sick you've got PTO so you're not losing part of your paycheck because of circumstances you can't control. I've never seen a company so well organized, so well run, and with genuine integrity. Far and away the best job I have ever had

    Cons

    The online training courses can be difficult to search, find, and navigate

    Amazing team, flexible hours, work from home occasionally, exciting projects, on-site cafeteria, on-site workout/locker rooms, opportunity to work on different CDK products

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at CDK Global full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work life balance still good for most, but eroding away under the 'bad' managers/directors. No limit to vacation time, as long as manager approves, After years, CDK finally has a CEO that is good, engaged and seems to care. There are many smart, great people working at CDK. Health benefits aren't as bad as CDKers like to say. Work from home is working out well in the pandemic.

    Cons

    Some toxic management at the midlevels is destroying progress. Some job roles in the company are pushed too hard, burning out many quality employees, Salary compared to other tech companies is lacking. Been hard to recruit quality, knowledgable, experienced employees due to recent layoffs, bad reviews, etc. HR does not do enough to support employees against bad management.
