      Pros

      Pros

      Cars.com has a great company culture. All the teams are more than happy to help in any way they can. The management at cars is one of my favorite parts about the company. Every manager is very supportive, helpful and motivating.

      Cons

      I don’t really have any cons. I’ve been with the company for a little over a year and a half and have really enjoyed it. Sometimes the job can be a little repetitive but overall it is great
