I have been working at Dealertrack full-time

Pros

Dealertrack has many great things going on for them. On the upswing of business from a terrible market crash. With that said, they offer desirable PTO hours, paid holiday time off, health club and education reimbursements, and regular HQ communications keep employees in the know.

Cons

The raises are pretty insulting, and it's not just me being bitter. While I've been at the company, there has been little to no room for advancement; the same people work in the same places. There is a huge trend of favoritism and it definitely shows. What a joke it is trying to communicate with senior management and HR!

Advice to Management

Management needs pay attention to the little guys, you know the ones that make your money. Please keep in mind that the cost of living is getting higher and higher every year and consider that when doling out pay increases. How about not taking weeks to respond to emails.

    I have been working at Dealertrack full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have a lot of opportunities, the company is growing. Good benefits and great people. People share the knowledge which make it a good company to work for.

    Cons

    You have to travel a lot when you start. Almost every week you will be on the road. You have to be ready to work hard and work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend to have a better work and family balance for DMS installer.

    ok pay & benefits
    can use some work time for community service
    developers all have pluralsight accounts and we are encouraged to take some work time to take advantage of all those online trainings.

    Cons

    It's an IT company run by accountants.

    Worst communication ever.

    Management can't focus on anything, they have big ideas, but very poor execution, each month they have a new shiny project they think will solve all their problems and so the old projects go unfinished, the product never gets improved upon and it's getting further and further behind.

    They try to grow by buying other companies instead of improving what they have, no thought to how to bring it all together, the overall dt product is held together by duct tape and balling wire.

    For every employee that actually works in the trenches they have 3 managers, very top heavy organizational structure.

    Management decided to drop .net the best programming platform and professional network for the lamp stack, no logical reason giving for the change other than that they want to be cool hipsters just like Google and Facebook.

    Most importantly their products are complete vaporware, there is no motivation to work on anything because nothing the company does has any value.

    Advice to Management

    Focus, commit to important projects, reinvest in your product, and actally complete your goals.
