I worked at Edmunds.com full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- line level employees, some departments promote great company culture.
- lots of perks
- home office is in a beautiful location
- happy hours, company picnics, lots of free food

Cons

- politics are especially bad here, worse than previous employers I've worked for.
- pay is below market in most cases
- the owner is rude and socially challenged.
- have personally witnessed stuff written on conference room walls that denigrated other religions. Definitely seem to favor/be more lenient with those employees who are of their own religion.
- ROWE was very poorly executed.

Advice to Management

- Get rid of ROWE. It causes more damage than good.
- Please make some decisions and follow through. Too often does Edmunds throw a bunch of ideas that are parboiled against the wall and see if anything sticks. The product team is victim of this. The Sales team pays the most dearly for this.

    I worked at Edmunds.com full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people around the company. Good benefits and salary.

    Cons

    I was laid off by the company and it seemed as though it was primarily due to over hiring. I'd been a loyal employee for a good number of years and management could have better prepared me by letting me know when they thought they might have to let me go instead of just laying me off. They could have also worked with me to find another position in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe cut back on some of the "Parties" and goodies. I think most people would rather have a job and not as many of the extras.
