I have been working at CDK Global full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people
Great clients
Great location
Industry leading technologies for the automotive industry and advertising industry
Industry leaders shaping the future of automotive and advertising

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!

    Pros

    Cobalt is one of the few places I've worked where management truly seems devoted to empowering their employees. There's very little enforcement of hierarchy, and management is very sane when it comes to projects and deliverables - much more focus on quality deliverables than you would expect from a large company.

    Cons

    As with all large companies there is some bureaucracy. Management is also spread too thin for the amount of employees, info reaches us in a late fashion (bonus info, event opportunities, info about the company, etc).

    Advice to Management

    Hire more managers.
