    I worked at CDK Global full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work life balance still good for most, but eroding away under the 'bad' managers/directors. No limit to vacation time, as long as manager approves, After years, CDK finally has a CEO that is good, engaged and seems to care. There are many smart, great people working at CDK. Health benefits aren't as bad as CDKers like to say. Work from home is working out well in the pandemic.

    Cons

    Some toxic management at the midlevels is destroying progress. Some job roles in the company are pushed too hard, burning out many quality employees, Salary compared to other tech companies is lacking. Been hard to recruit quality, knowledgable, experienced employees due to recent layoffs, bad reviews, etc. HR does not do enough to support employees against bad management.

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

    Pros

    Commute, occasional option to work from home

    Cons

    My team and I are tired of 10 to 12 hour days, being paid for 8 and empty platitudes from management. The crazy idea that our jobs could be done in India is failing but management doesn't have the sense to try to turn it around and double the US workforce. Instead they dump India's work on us when we are already over capacity. Managers don't understand the job or how long doing it right takes and are very out of touch. Suggestions for improvements fall on deaf ears

    Pros

    Allowed to work from home on occasion.

    Cons

    Shady, dishonest management. Cut throat culture. Toxic work environment. Boring work. Some of the most negative, mean spirited co-workers I have ever encountered in my entire career! Layoffs are frequent and come without warning. Any positive reviews on here were written by HR reps from the company. It is NOT a good place to work!
