    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

    What a shame

    Pros

    Good company to start career with and develop skills which you can carry to your next opportunity.

    Cons

    Culture over years has diminished to point where employee moral is non existent. The business may be in trouble with increased debt and increased declining dealer count year over year. This combined with increased competition taking more and more marketshare is a recipe for continued layoffs and contraction.

    Tread Lightly

    Pros

    Flexible working environment (can wfh some days), nice office space in downtown Chicago.

    Cons

    Extremely fragmented work between various pieces of the company (local sales versus national sales). Innovation has been a serious area of struggle and has negatively impacted the ways employees are asked to complete their job responsibilities, especially on national. Growth opportunities are few and far between, and there have been layoffs for the past few years even before the pandemic. There is a total lack of direction for the company as a whole, as they constantly look for new revenue options.
