    Mary,

    I would like to thank the Mary and the human resource team for the invaluable way you and teammates they helped me with the recruiting and onboarding process with Carfax.

You responded quickly to all of the questions I had, and it was greatly a pleasure to interview, and work with you during the whole process. Please let Sybille, and anyone else I am missing that I appreciate them.

    Pros

    Amazing collaborative environment. Super-smart people, strict 'no-jerks' policy, interesting work. Lots of fun activities, catered lunch on Fridays. Dog-friendly. Huge variety of technologies. Flat org structure reduces bureaucracy. Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Huge variety of technologies, including lots of legacy stuff to support. Virginia vs. Missouri sites sometimes feel like completely separate companies forced to work together. Flat org structure poses limited opportunity for promotion.

    Pros

    Carfax has been a blessing. A great place to work because of the leadership and responsibility everyone takes. Great place to seek personal and professional growth.

    Cons

    Very little down side. This my first time working with such a large company so it can feel a bit overwhelming at first.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the future.

    Pros

    Transparency, desire to do the right thing even though it's hard. Being able to bring your dog to work, casual (Flip Flop and Shorts is desired) dress code. Great technology, lots of time off, accommodating work schedules.

    Cons

    Teams can be spread out and hard to collaborate at times, a flat organization so if climbing the corporate ladder is your goal may be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to change and enforce the culture of 1 Team and do the right thing not the quickest.

    Pros

    Truly rewarding to come to work in an environment where positivity and innovation is contagious. Employees are adopted as part of the Carfax family from the first day. The numerous incentives you receive from great coffee, free candy in the lobby, ice cream socials, donut welcome for new employees, Friday lunches, work anniversary gifts are just a part of the overall employee care to provide excellent product for consumers of which we even receive, free Carfax Reports are some of the many benefits. The benefits plan for employees are great and life/work/fun balance flexibility is evident year round at Carfax. Every season is Carfax season.

    Cons

    Carfax is so great that you wont want to work anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Participation on company activities is a great leadership skill to share with your employees, keep up the great work.

    Pros

    CARFAX's senior management team really listen to what employees state will make the organization better. Everyone has a vote into the strategic mission of the company.

    Cons

    Although, there are hardly any cons that with the organization, one of the things that CARFAX is attempting to address is more cross team collaboration. It's a step in the right direction to make CARFAX more efficient, and a fun place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward with what you are doing.

    I worked at CARFAX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is always willing to drop what they are doing and lend a hand. A real work hard but play harder environment as well. Everything Carfax does is for its employees and they always are looking for everyone's best interest. This is honestly the best company, best team, and best environment that any one could ever ask for. 20/10 would recommend to everyone.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons. This is the most transparent place to be. You always know what is going on. And if you don't you just ask and they let you know.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You guys are always adapting as well and sharing, listening, and helping the team. The real backbone I believe of Carfax. Special shout out to Dana, Jeff, and Tim. They are great motivators, leaders, and team members. Really know how to keep the wheels turning for production while making it fun.
