    I worked at CDK Global full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good, open culture. Flexibility to WFH, to introduce new technologies, to discuss new ideas. Focus on good programming practices (more in talks than in code). A few very good leaders and engineers driving most of the 'pros'.

    Cons

    Newly hired people are trying to disturb good culture to their benefits and management is letting it happen as they are more concerned about their own growth. The technical stack is old; in a few years, it would be ancient unless fixed. Most of the projects are in the maintenance phase, the company only needs good enough engineers to keep it running as-is. Due to the continuous attrition of product managers, vision is not solid enough. More focus on talks than actions. If you can speak about some 'keywords' you can get away with bad work or even no work. Some people who literally focus only on buttering the managers are being rewarded in last few years, ruining the good culture the teams have had as newly joining people are realizing what is being rewarded and acting accordingly. The recruitment process is in shambles. Some managers are putting their ego above everything. Managers hold a lot of meetings just to talk about something that never gets implemented, to talk about feedbacks that they never work upon or just to feed their ego.
