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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, always new innovations, activities like Wii bowling and scrum room that make work fun, Customer Service appreciation week spread to entire office not just customer service.

    Cons

    Bought out by AutoTrader.com in 12-10 since then communication has gone down hill. Put under HomeNet and CDM is never recognized for it's contributions any more.

    Advice to Management

    If we are HomeNet then bring it into our Scottsdale office. You have lost trust in the office because the stories change on what is really going on.


  2. "The job went downhill in 2013 when Xcite Advertising bought CDM"

    I worked at CDM Data full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule (work your own hours), never a problem taking a full or half day off, don't have to sit in a cubicle all day (outside on a dealer's lot), reimbursement for fuel was very good (you will run your car into the ground though), get to work around cars (shop/browse while you work), very little supervision so you have freedom to take breaks when you want.

    Cons

    Things were good until 2013 when Xcite Advertising bought CDM, then the slow descent began, no raises, Xcite only wanted the CA market and didn't care about other areas of the country so they were basically ignored. There is no interest in sending sales reps to knock on doors in my territory and generate new business. Xcite hires contract labor which typically means people that last a few months and then move on.

    Advice to Management

    Xcite needs to at least act like they care about CDM's employees, in those last two years (of 11 total), no one with Xcite ever spoke to me, I can't tell you one person's name at Xcite either, there is a complete disconnect between Xcite and CDM's employees. They hired contract labor which completely goes against the grain of the principals that CDM was founded on. CDM was a good company but Xcite is just killing CDM with death by a thousand cuts.

    I have been working at CDM Data full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Management
    Great vacation time
    Great healthcare benefits
    Decent pay
    Friendly coworkers
    Flexibility
    Mileage compensation
    Opportunity to travel across the country

    Cons

    Limited communication between managers. CDM Division has gone downhill since changing hands to Autotrader. CDM itself is very good to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more! Was much better before Autotrader purchased company

    Invest in technology- competition has the edge
