    I worked at carsales.com.au

    Pros

    The company has an absolute monopoly in the industry because majority of car dealers use Autogate for managing their stock, which is a carsales product. Therefore, there is no need for carsales to do anything right by the consumers and the employees, because the business continues to exist and make money solely because of its position and relationships in the industry

    Cons

    The key management techniques employed by upper management are bullying, gas-lighting and misogyny. And the remaining spineless cowards in upper management who aren't like that, are equally guilty by staying silent about it. Shame on you all, you know who you are.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to write fake 5 star reviews, please get more fake profiles to upvote them, otherwise you just seem a bit pathetic 😊

    I worked at carsales.com.au full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The intent to care and become a great place to work is there. There is an overall spirit of forward momentum, the company and its leaders show clear intent on improvement and making tough decisions to shed its skin and grow.

    Cons

    As with any company going through the challenges of a digital transformation, its legacy structure, governance, staff and culture are the chains that hold it back. The leadership and senior management teams have still yet to find their rhythm and single goal, and so the message can often be fragmented and the direction often-changing with the single-minded goal of revenue being chased rather than pillaring on the importance...

    Advice to Management

    Truly learn who provides value and who doesn't regardless of seniority level; be authentic, consistent and decisive to act like the leaders that should lead in the workplace.

    Pros

    Breakfast cereal, table tennis, pool table Hackathons etc. yawn - all great is that’s your thing.

    Cons

    Since Greg Roebuck retired the caring atmosphere has disappeared, company BBQs were great with a vast selection of different foods, now it’s just a sausage in bread and perhaps a few veggie burgers....and that’s if you get down there in time. Attitudes of senior management towards staff is getting worse and worse especially since the ELT group has a few new members that are quite proud of them selves and feel the power....

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to forget he was CFO and run the company as they say they are, focus on your staff not focus so much on each dollar, MAKE the time to get out of your office and go see some of your staff. Talk to them and show some interest. In two years I never once saw you do it.

    Pros

    Great, flexible hours for photographers. Fun work, great for supporting healthy lifestyle.

    Cons

    Some issues with dealership staff, and not a great deal of support on-the-ground. Lots of alone time on the road. No pay if it's raining, so during wetter months, can end up short.
