    Pros

    Plain and simple: the culture is amazing. The product itself is extremely sophisticated and basically sells itself, but apart from that, what truly makes the company great is all of the employees. Upper management is super involved, hands on, and willing to listen to your ideas. Everyone is approachable, charismatic, and super encouraging. Of course there’s perks like, snacks in the break room, catered lunch, beer cart, unlimited PTO, benefits, etc. It still has the fun start-up vibe without being fratty and annoying.

    Cons

    It’s a start-up so it’s still going through it’s growing pains, but that is expected. If you’re not willing to adapt to change quickly or need absolute structure then a start-up probably isn’t for you. If you’re willing to contribute to it’s rapid growth and be more than someone who just punches the clock, then there’s plenty of opportunity ahead.

    Pros

    THE PEOPLE! LotLinx has that working environment recipe almost perfect. It took a while in the "kitchen" but fun, joy, positivity, and productivity have come together. Working with products and services with a future-cutting edge and interesting intellectually. Generous benefits and opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    Not many, but a little breath-holding to make sure the last of the gossips and negative culture types are either converted or move on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep executing on product improvement, zero tolerance for negative managers who "gossip", reward positive problem solvers and team players, give your new leadership enough time to execute on what is a positive direction.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO...going to work every day at that he** hole is incredibly draining. You will need the time off.

    Cons

    The leaders are the biggest jerks. They have no kindness, compassion and everything is my way or the highway. The people are terrified to express their viewpoints or challenge leadership, even when decisions are illegal and/or immoral even at the most senior level. They fire anyone who doesn’t kiss up and has original ideas and opinions. I wouldn’t recommend this place to my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    What goes around comes back around

    I worked at LotLinx full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers and challenging work environment.

    Cons

    No real career path, too many hiccups within the platform causing a lot of fires, constant fight with dealers as to why they should keep the service.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with what you know works. Trying to add on too many things while diminishing the core product will not help you get ahead.

    I worked at LotLinx full-time

    Pros

    That I interacted with hundreds of folks within the auto industry resulting in great relationships that I'll have forever.

    Cons

    If I could give LotLinx negative stars, I absolutely would. With the exception of one VP whom was my boss for a few months all of the senior leadership was absent the day compassion was handed out. They allow certain employees to treat everyone else like garbage. LotLinx took away my ability to work from home in January (despite the fact that I have a legitimate medical issue) yet another employee with the same title only came into the office twice a week. On two separate occasions I was told that it's because "he's loud." They change commission policies without warning taking money out of your pocket. After they let me go, they screwed me on commissions and then I had to chase down my final severance check. I wouldn't recommend LotLinx as a place to work for my worst enemy let alone a friend.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees like human beings. Stop allowing certain people to treat others like trash. Treat everyone fairly.
