    I worked at Dealix Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get recognition for your contributions, especially for establishing key initiatives or completing major projects

    Cons

    During my five years there, I had a different manager each year, due to M&A reorganizations and nearly the entire corporate finance team being replaced. Investments for improved productivity for the accounting and finance group was always 2nd to sales and marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Spending a lot initially to purchase to mid-tier accounting software that integrates well with your in-house proprietary system may add great value to the company. Simply increasing headcount to keep up with mundane tasks, such as double data entry, or trying to develop your own in-house financial software was a mistake.

    I worked at Dealix Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people worked here. The company strategy made sense. They had an existing foothold in the market.

    Cons

    Inconsistent results. Old infrastructure. Lack of integration with other corporate partners. Never cracked issues of providing quality results to customers, which lead to poor sales performance and high customer turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Increase integration with other parts of ADP Dealer Services. Invest in more analytics to better identify and provide higher quality.

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

    Pros

    Good manager, benefits, and plenty of parking. Pay was on par with industry standards. Nice people for the most part.

    Cons

    None that immediately come to mind. Some employees working there need more training at what they do because the overall company message gets diminished.

    I have been working at Dealix Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ADP bought them and has great sales model if they would accept

    Cons

    Management does not go along with ADP
    Management has no people skills nor do they care
    Management does not respect employees or at least outside sales operations
    People in charge of sales operations at corporation are impossible to work with
    Did not value quality people that were working and selling

    Advice to Management

    Sales management needs to be changed. If you do not have people skills you should not be in charge of people who do.

    I worked at Dealix Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot of maintenance work, less new innovation

    Cons

    Very egoistic management. Never hear the voice of the people. They always go by management.
    Business is going in downward direction

    Advice to Management

    HR/Management should treat employees as the part of the organization. Organizations won't run just based on the management/managers.

    I have been working at Dealix Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At Dealix there is a sense of community. Every one I have had contact with has be professional and warm at the same time. I really enjoy working for Dealix. They have positions that allow the employee to work from home and it is supported by ADP in the way they treat their employees.

    Cons

    It is hard to find a con, but perhaps more support for those of us that work at home.

    Pros

    Work life balance, lot of free time!

    Cons

    Mix of blue color & white color type employees, no innovative mindset, many do not understand the nuances of an Internet company, for that matter a technology company & behave as if it's an extention of a dealership!

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees realize it's a technology company! That might take hiring people who understand what that means!
