    I have been working at CDK Global full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very established company, with great vision! Good pay and benefits with a great work, life, balance belief with a very strong customer focus which is what I like. This company does have an extremely large team, but is broken down into easy to follow teams. They are innovative and always looking to grow and change with the industry demands. It's great place to work!

    - relaxed environment - flexible hours -

    Cons

    - Priorities constantly changing, the direction of the company unclear - Very little transparency to employees - Lots of corporate talk that ultimately means nothing. The more corporate words you hear, the worse things are. When things are good, they are far more transparent - Lots of turnover

    Pros

    Location in the Waterloo, Canada office is very central, possibility to work from home, pay is decent.

    This office is very old style, not only the building itself but the way business is conducted. Managers are manager, product is old and not very innovative, things happen is slow pace.
