      Pros

      Day 1 great benefits, Monday through Friday work schedule, they empower feedback from employees

      Cons

      too many meetings and repetitive reporting etc. You fill out a report to fill out another report on the same information over and over. waste of time.

      Pros

      New strong leadership, intelligent and motivated coworkers, great benefits, and managers focused on individuals career progression.

      Cons

      Only con could also be a pro depending on who you ask, but internal structure / responsibilities aren’t always crystal clear. This does allow motivated individuals to stretch outside their role and bolster their experience however.

      Pros

      Great team of motivated co-workers. Great benefits.

      Cons

      Upper management is like Dei ex machina (Gods from a machine); there's no telling how you might offend them. Turns out I offended one of them by rejecting someone for a writing position that said upper manager had been um...er...intimate with. Silly me, thinking I'd had a mandate to actually hire quality people. The final straw was getting replaced by another one of upper management's siblings. Yes, sibling. Unethical, yes. But apparently not illegal.

      Not "Unethical", but a Pretty Low Bar.

      Pros

      1. Great Pay: The only reason I never left until being laid off. 2. Great Benefits and Office Amenities: Unlimited PTO, 100% health coverage, great office snacks and environment, gym membership allowance 3. Free parking in Santa Monica: Alternatively you can collect a stipend for using public transportation. 4. Dog-Friendly Office (only some offices) 5. Flexible Work Environment: Ability to work from home or remotely as needed, just make sure you get your work done. 6. Lots of celebrations for reasons I cannot explain. Achieving mediocrity?

      Cons

      1. Poorly Managed: Lack of strategy from the top, lack of accountability everywhere else. Priorities are driven by the shiny object of the week. 2. Challenges Your Ethics: Not exactly an unethical company, but the decision making definitely makes you question your values. 3. Technology development is at a standstill. Haven't been able to keep up with the business, even maintaining image accuracy or effectively executing on campaigns. 4. No HR Department: Have not been able to keep an HR executive for more than a year since the original one left the company in 2015. 5. You'll leave with the feeling that you sold your soul to the devil. 6. My pre-IPO equity is now worth $0 due to the $6 stock price. Thanks.

      Communication is not the strong suit.

      Pros

      Beautiful Santa Monica Great work/life balance Some amazing individuals Great benefits (insurance, unlimited PTO, etc)

      Cons

      Pay is very poor - set very low expectations on bonus and don't expect to ever get a raise. Like ever. Management is full of egoistical and incompetent. the worse combination Layoffs. So many layoffs. every year. They just laid off 10% of the company CEO is an old guy out of touch with current business and technology needs

      Great company, internally still needs some work

      Pros

      Free lunch every Wednesday, great benefits and compensation plan, casual atmosphere, music blasting on sales side, fun people to work with - for the most part, public company so you are gifted shares of stock, the upper management really does care for their employees

      Cons

      The members of the sales team are essentially forced to work overtime. They do not have a very healthy work-life balance, so if you have a family, don't expect to see them much. This job is made for the person who only cares about their career. The inside sales team is a fairly new department so there are quite a few disconnects and lots of learning curves. If you have a killer attitude and are willing to sacrifice your personal life for making good money with a public company, this job is for you. However, be prepared to fight for what's right and wrong because not everyone who deserves a promotion gets one. This job is very click-ish and people will stab you in the back to get to the top. Like I said, if you can handle that kind of work culture, then by all means you will be wildly successful.

      If you see an opening you should apply

      Pros

      You know when you work hard at a company but there are always those few people that seem to only do just enough and get away with it? One of my favorite things about working at TrueCar is everyone is a high performer. Each day I get to work with sharp people who challenge yet support me. It's an exciting, fast paced environment with an important mission -- slackers need not apply. The culture, the pay, the bonuses, and the benefits are great and you can't beat the location.

      Cons

      It's fast paced and there can be a lot of changes and tight deadlines. You need to be flexible and a team player to make sure things get done. Not a good place for someone that wants to work 9-5 and put in minimal effort.

      Pros

      Great work locations and brand new offices. Catered lunches with other great benefits like 100% Medical, Dental and Vision coverage PPO for you and your family. Lot's of promotions from within and opportunity to learn from really smart individuals.

      Cons

      Lot's of change recently in upper management but only for the better! but you do need to be a individual that is able to adapt and help everyone move in the right direction.
