      Pros

      Company has a great work / life balance.

      Cons

      As time went on there were many great sales incentives that were reconstructed/taken away that led to making less in sales commission.

      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

      Pros

      Kind folks, high energy environment in all areas of the company

      Typically large corporation issues, siloing, bureaucracy. Not the worst in any category by a long shot but recognize what your choosing if you're coming from startup land

      Pros

      So many companies claim that they have a good culture in interviews and on the surface, but CARS truly cares about each employee and embodies what it means to have an empowering company culture. Upper management is EXTREMELY accessible and involved in a positive way in your normal work day and the whole company has a common drive for success. The amount of recognition and shoutouts people get for hard work here is remarkable and constant (and ins't forced). CARS did an amazing job with a fully virtual new hire onboarding and training experience. I have never stepped foot in the office once; however, I have been able to excel in the job so quickly and that is due to the training and the way that they have made work from home so natural. If you're looking for a good virtual work experience, this is the place - they've absolutely killed it! From the moment I started working at CARS, there was already an open and ongoing conversation about what my next step would be. Management invests time and effort in your career development and wants you to succeed. Can't say enough good things!

      Cons

      Sometimes working with dealers can be a little disheartening, but if you take what you learn in training and keep a positive attitude, you truly can be successful and get good at the job.

      Pros

      The environment and atmosphere really was incredible.

      Cons

      Well no one saw a Pandemic shutting down the automotive industry. It wasn't their fault they had to do what was best for the company.
