    I have been working at CARFAX full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Not sure where to start...working for a financially successful organization (hence solid/stable) with a strong, trusted brand is amazing. The pride in what we do is evident throughout our offices and on the road with our field team everyday. I do love working with just about everyone I’ve come into contact with over the years. Every once in a while I have a head-scratching moment, whether related to a project or colleague...

    Cons

    Yes, the reviews are true, there is a ton of food at CARFAX. :-) It can be challenging to hire younger folks (and even some non-younger ones) in Centreville given the lack of social amenities around the office. As you can probably tell in the photos, our offices are very open which is great for collaboration and team camaraderie, but it can be challenging when you need some quiet space to focus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the faith, be true to the Playbook, and keep pushing us to grow in a healthy way. Help us leverage the strength of our successful, multi-national parent company (IHSMarkit) without allowing them to change our business formula and culture.

    I have been working at CARFAX full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Everyone from HR to the Senior Team to the myCarfax team CARES! Plenty of paid time off. Health Insurance is top notch (Coming from the Federal Government/Tricare). Pay is generous. Bonuses are even more generous. The WHOLE Carfax team works so well together because we all care about each other's success. I have never felt so appreciated in any other job. Team events/activities are awesome! We love pets! Most...

    Cons

    Inclement weather procedures align with the Fairfax County Government. Unless you have a job where you can work from home, one must use paid time off if they cannot make it to work. The Fairfax County Government NEVER closes or delays despite dangerous road conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing because waking up every day to go to work is a complete joy! Carfax makes me feel like I'm making a difference in lives every day!
