I have been working at CDK Global full-time

Pros

Lot of scope to learn something new.
Easy to switch between teams and broaden your horizon.
While there is always a deadline to wrap up your work, there is ample opportunity to maintain work life balance.
Encouraged to think of a solution from consumer standpoint versus doing it just for the sake of learning a new technology.
Ample opportunity to learn about the business.
Awesome people... you will work with some of the best folks in the industry, both knowledge wise and behavior wise.

Cons

Compensation is average.
Health package is average to below average
Other benefits are average to below average
Limited opportunities to grow as a technical leader, although that is slowly changing... but more needs to be done.
Vacation package is below average
Sometimes there appears to be too much focus on satisfying business versus getting the right solution out into the market... and that leads to unnecessary compromises being made to quality of the product.
Too much reliance on a single big client versus exploring other options.

Advice to Management

Fix the cons...

    Cons

    Cobalt is a great place to work, but it doesn't have the glitzy brand-appeal of an Amazon or Google. You aren't working here to get rich on stock grants and options, but if you want a fun, dynamic, rewarding employer (that pays well too), Cobalt is the best.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose sight of culture, creativity and willingness to fail that got us to where we are today!
