      Great Company that wants its customers to succeed

      Pros

      Great work/life balance, focus on the customer, Open vacation/time off plan, friendly environment and coworkers.

      Cons

      There are not many cons, but I would say: Silos between some departments, old core product, can be slow to innovate at times.

      Good work life balance but low productivity

      Pros

      Pay is on lower end but better in the SJC office. Good work life balance and bosses.

      Cons

      Upper management is doing a lot of restructuring w/o much effect. Many employees are stagnating and not very productive. Business space is saturated without room to grow.

      Very chaotic

      Pros

      Personal development was encouraged. The work hours were not backbreaking, you could have a decent work/life balance. Yearly hack-a-thon was fun and a great change of pace. If you can find the right position there it could be a very nice stable gig.

      Cons

      When I was there the organization was very chaotic. Jobs were being outsourced to India and teams were being shuffled constantly. I imagine things have probably settled down there since then.

      Lack of vision, outdated products, draconic IT systems.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good work life balance (it's easy to look busy and do nothing).

      Cons

      The company is loosing market share to Tekion and other newcomers. The products are outdated and there is no strong vision on executive level on how to use the current revenue stream to modernize the product portfolio (several attempts failed already). The competitors in the space are innovating much faster than CDK, and making few acquisitions won't stop them. The IT systems are draconic (spying on everything the employees are doing on their work computer). The comp and benefits are below the market average (they will only offer you a raise once you put your 2 weeks notice). Don't expect to see any 401K matching if you leave in the first 3 years, as the matching comes with a 3 year vesting cliff (read the fine print).
