      Pros

      Great team, people really nice.

      Cons

      After re-org, workload is unreasonable.

      Advice to Management

      Either provide more resources, or try to do only the things that are really going to make a difference. Now we are trying to do everything with little people. Workload is unreasonable, and quality of the outcome is not good.

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

      Pros

      Benefits like healthcare and free breakfast coffee etc., great manager, good sports and social, some great people across the company, good opportunity for those who are up for it, new CEO promotes strong culture of transparency, communication & responsibility

      Cons

      Culture & structure has been difficult post - re org, people struggling to cope with workload & change etc. but it has presented opportunities for many people . Call centre can be challenging with some negative calls, underlying technology & processes needs innovation

      Advice to Management

      Invest in underlying processes & tech to scale & retain talent, keep going with re-org and regular communication

      I worked at CarTrawler full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Some of the people are lovely, the only thing that will keep you sane

      Cons

      -no progression - favouritism is abundant - don’t even bother interviewing for a promotion, they already know who they’ll give it to -complete lack of communication or transparency -HR have the people they like and if you aren’t one of them good luck If you want to join a company to progress in your career this isn’t it It’s a mentally unhealthy work environment.

      Advice to Management

      Be more open, don’t lie about internal hiring processes , reprimand people for behaviours they seem to be getting rewarded for while other employees suffer.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at CarTrawler full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      You will gain exposure to many areas of the business - this is because you will be spread so thinly.

      Cons

      CT was a fantastic company full of engaged, enthusiastic and driven people. The majority of those people left or were fired at will. The recent re-org resulted in many, many - many amazing people and talent leaving CT taking with them the culture. The only people that done well out of the reorg were the clique and people who are well connected. Pay - The pay is absolutely far below market average. Salary reviews happen...
