I have been working at CDK Global full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The Culture. Everyone here wants to be here and knows a lot about different things. It is a very good place to work if you want to be able to try an improve the company, they are very receptive of feedback and changes. Good benefits, perks and technology.

Cons

I heard they pay lower than industry standard and only do percentage pay increases once you have started, no large jumps for promotions.

    I have been working at CDK Global full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people, great location, healthy building (LEED certified), reasonably humane atmosphere for a tech company, REAL customers, customer-driven instead of technology-driven which makes for better overall management and reality
    For a lot of people, work is not crazy hours - seems like a manageable job in high tech

    Cons

    downside of having real customers is they can be demanding and unreasonable
    have to drag automotive industry kicking and screaming into the 21C
    following the money has led to a lot of quick turnarounds which leads to a lot of inefficiencies and hacked together stuff but they are good about cleaning it up as they go
    backed by major corporation has pros and cons - you get a paycheck but you're subject to the huge corporation headaches (HR, Benefits, facelessness)
    I haven't experienced it but a lot of people are overworked - startup style - people dont' make good decisions when they're stressed out

    Advice to Management

    ADP itself needs to do a better job of communicating with high-tech workers - all thru the recruiting and onboarding process ADP uses negative and blaming toned email and communications.
    Add Group Health to health benefits options
    make sure people don't get burned out
    make sure that time is built in for cleaning up processes and code
    more documentation of processes
