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...

    Pros

    Cobalt has a unique culture among companies I have worked for. You truly feel like you are part of a family, and that what you do matters to the company success. Nobody here is pretentioius. Everyone works. Everyone contributes. We are all focussed on the same goals.

    Cons

    Sometimes its hard being away from Seattle, and you feel a little disconnected from the mother ship. I wish we could come back twice a year like we did in the past to recharge, re-energize, and deepen our belief in what we are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for your hard work and dedication, and committment to providing us with a unique and rewarding work atmosphere that encourages particiapation, growth, and success.
