    I have been working at CarGurus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best company I have worked for...literally. Since the first day of contact, my experience with CarGurus has been amazing. The interview process was well facilitated and the recruiter I was in touch with gave me a good background on the company and the role. The training for new hires went very well and it was obvious that this company is headed on a rocketship trajectory. Some of the brightest minds I have encountered...

    I worked at CarGurus full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Culture is awesome. Room for movement if you’re motivated. Fast paced growing company. Benefits are excellent and your co workers are the best people in the Boston area. An opportunity to feel as though you’re and asset in building something big.

    Cons

    Work can change on a dime. However at the same time can get a bit mundane.

    Advice to Management

    Path to promotion should be a little more clear, don’t lose culture as the company continues to grow.

    I have been working at CarGurus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I feel that the mission, culture, ability to support my quality of life and desire to get things done are all areas that CarGurus meets beyond expectations. One area where perhaps being jaded by prior experiences I was not expecting to be so happy about was the general quality of the people I interact with every day. We all arrive to work everyday burdened with the worries and frustrations that sometimes affect our...

    Cons

    CarGurus is pretty open about their expectations that “we feel people do their best work in the office”. Coming from a environment with a really relaxed office presence policy I was fearful this would be difficult. The fact that there is no limit on reasonable personal or sick time covers the worries about making appointments or taking care of things that come up helps. You are expected to log this time, but it does...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Given your growth and success, many of you have been there from the beginning. As you bring on new contributors and leaders from the outside, please continue to be open to what may seem our crazy ideas, it’s critical to merge those with what has worked to get you to where CarGurus is so we can continue to have good outcomes and see positive feedback on neutral sites such as this one.

    I have been working at CarGurus full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I love CarGurus. The company is growing 40-50% year over year and management really cares about how the employees feel. I think having Snoop Dogg headline our private holidays party says a lot about how fun CarGurus is and how much management appreciates us all for helping the company grow.

    Cons

    None yet. The company is awesome, growing and I love it.

    Advice to Management

    The transparent work environment, support from senior leadership and perks are just a few of the best things about working here. Each contributor in the company is treated with respect and given open communication with leadership and senior leadership which is great and unique! We are a tech company and have perks that rival the best tech companies out there. We have free lunch, equity in the company, free T pass to work,...

    I have been working at CarGurus full-time

    Pros

    I am a Senior level Sales manager with enough gray hair to prove it. I became interested in CarGurus because I interacted with Automotive Dealers in the past who loved using CarGurus. As a consumer, I also love using CarGurus. In business and in life I always enter new opportunities with high hopes and optimism. However, I have sometimes found that job opportunities turn out to be less than ideal and less than...
