    Pros

    Waking up every morning and actually enjoying going to work. After working for Corporate America where you are just a number, DealerRater treats it's employees like valued contributors who are recognized for a job well done. There is excellent chemistry among the employees at DealerRater and a great sense of camaraderie.

    Cons

    The commute can really be a hassle at times. But hey, I'd rather have to drive a little to get to a job then not have a job at all.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at DealerRater full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very fast growing company that has many new employees this year. This is a company that very frequently promotes from within creating new career opportunities at a quick pace. The culture allows some structure while allowing employees to expand their creative talents. The company is well respected in the market and industry.

    Cons

    The building is so cool to work in, I love coming to work everyday. Being a nicely renovated older building creates temperature variances that require having a sweater handy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing upper management. The focus on growth will allow others and myself to advance our careers, compensation and utilize our talents.

    I have been working at DealerRater full-time

    Pros

    I've been working at DealerRater over 3 years. The people are hard working, fun and inspiring. There's the ability to grow into new roles and we have a suggestion box that is taken very seriously. Management is always willing to listen to new ideas and they care about my growth and happiness.

    Cons

    It's a beautiful old building, very retro, with high ceilings, so it can get rather chilly in the building.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for a great place to work

    Pros

    I still would not change a thing about the experience. There are no mistakes only experiences. It is a private company run by a visionary so if his vision does not match my own and the efforts I put in, it was best we parted ways.

    Unfortunately, and sadly enough if the management is not doing it intentionally it is quite telling about the culture created to see all the success franchise markets have while you bask in the glory of looking for a crumb or two - not of pizza though - thankfully there is enough of that to relieve frustration.

    Cons

    I wonder though if the CEO and owner realize the incessant rubbing of ones nose in others' victories in the franchise market is not really affirming and breeds contempt against those who do less intense work or come and go at their leisure but poke fun at you.

    Advice to Management

    Actions speak louder than words - mine as well as yours.

    Pros

    Working for this team changed my life and opened doors for me that I couldn't have imagined. I am sincerely grateful for the management in this team, specifically Dana, who gave me the chance to start my career in accounting. Not only did they take care of me, they taught me everything I know. If you work for this team, consider yourself lucky as they don't take in everyone. They will take care of you and teach you things that are required for a future accountant.

    Cons

    Some meetings weren't necessary and the trophy award based off performance were kind of off. Thank god Dana gave us our own performance reviews because she knew about the hard work accounting actually did.

    Pros

    DealerRater is a fantastic company. It is laser focused on providing a superior product and service to its customers and it is predominantly filled with people who consistently go above and beyond. Sure, there are long hours, but the company makes real effort to help with work/life balance. Weekly lunches, a free and fully stocked snack bar, an incredible work environment with an onsite gym (in the Watch Factory in Waltham), and a new summer program that allows for "Flex Fridays." Basically, every other week you get 5 days of work completed in 4 days and then take that Friday off. Excellent benefits, too. Culture is relaxed but intense, and overall, fun. A priority is placed on training and personal development.

    Great people, great products.

    Cons

    Can't really think of much in terms of downside. Worst I can come up with is sometimes the traffic in Waltham can be rough, but it's not too bad.

    I worked at DealerRater full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, training and leading product in exciting space, company is very transparent and fast moving. Excellent place to make an impact and become a big fish in a small pond in month one.

    Cons

    Tolerated underperforming employees in different roles and departments. It is hard for entry level employees to see a realistic path to growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent and allow the open door policies and open communication glow.

    Pros

    I've been at DealerRater for 3 months now and really enjoy working here. I think it really comes down to the leadership team and our office culture, in addition to liking what I do and knowing there are opportunities for growth.

    - Amazing leadership team: Our leadership team works great together and are always in the office to answer questions. I feel comfortable asking any director, VP, or our CEO any job related questions or just about how their weekend went. They truly make the office a great place to work.
    - Office culture: Weekly catered lunches on Monday's, monthly happy hours, stocked snack rack and fresh fruit, and great events such as our holiday party in Boston or our 2016 kickoff meeting (we went to F1 racing last Friday!) Everyone here is friendly and great to work with. I can't wait for more Fitbit office challenges and for a kickball league in the spring.

    Cons

    I have no complains and have really enjoyed working here so far!

    I have been working at DealerRater full-time

    Pros

    I started working here less than a year ago and in all honesty, I was a little hesitant to accept my offer based on other reviews I read on Glassdoor. What ultimately convinced me were the people I met during my interview process. In the end, the job I was interviewing for seemed to match the job description, and my wants, very well, and the people I met seemed genuine and exciting. I can say with the utmost confidence, I love my job at DealerRater. I've read other reviews and just don't see what others have seen. The work that I'm doing is exciting and cutting edge. I'm working with awesome people in many different stages of their careers. The office environment is fun and engaging. And the work I do matters. I'm not getting paid for this review, I don't work in HR, and I'm not in a managerial position. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and like I said, I've been here for less than a year. I can only assume the negative reviews here were left prior to some major changes that had to have taken place. Because I don't regret my decision to work here one bit.

    Cons

    The temperature in the office could be regulated a little better.

    Advice to Management

    Stay transparent. It's always nice to see an office where management trusts its employees sensitive information.
