    I worked at PureCars full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    "Free" lunch and "unlimited PTO"

    Cons

    This company is awful. To be honest, I was so desperate for work after my last company went belly-up that I ignored all the warning signs and Glassdoor reviews. I figured the previous reviews were from lazy people, and even if the reviews were honest I figured that I could tough it out. BOY WAS I WRONG. The interview process went really well, but it was as if the people I interviewed with changed the day I arrived. (Did...

    I worked at PureCars full-time

    Pros

    They have new investors--that is a pro. Work life balance is the best I have ever experienced! Product and offerings are good and there is a genuine care for clients.

    Cons

    Hopefully the new investment backers will see what is really going on and get PureCars cleaned up. Lack of care or investment in diversity in leadership (take a look at the leadership group on the website). Perception is indeed reality. Losing 4 or 5 female leaders in a matter of months leaves employees (including myself) questioning why. This is not a workplace where women are fully represented by any means. On...

    Pros

    unlimited vacation, flexible working hours, catered lunch. Great job for a beginner in the ad tech field

    Cons

    lots of work with small salaries. Hard work isn't recognized through compensation depending on who your manager is.

    I worked at PureCars full-time

    Pros

    It took me some time to think of some pros that relate to the job itself... I came up short. Like many others have stated, there is unlimited PTO, lunch is provided 3x a week, and it is in Midtown.

    Cons

    Where do I start? I didn’t want to believe the reviews before I started in regards to it being like a frat house, but that is exactly what it is. Like others have stated, if you’re experienced, taking a job here will actually set you back, regardless of the “perks”. Management is very inexperienced, in my opinion, and do not care to invest in most of their employees. I’m pretty sure that if you’re apart of the “in crowd”,...

    Advice to Management

    I honestly don’t think they will listen to the advice given, because egos are so big at this company. Maybe they will get it together before they lose the few hard working employees they have left!

    I worked at PureCars full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO Work life balance (or lazy employees if you see this as a pro)

    Cons

    Horrible management Bullying Promotions for those bullies Cliques Some things going on here that are borderline illegal

    Advice to Management

    I'd give advice to managers if PureCars actually had any real managers.

    Lunch 3x a week. PTO. flex life.

    Cons

    salary below market. No strategy on moving forward in your department. No clear direction. Ideas are not taken into consideration when presented. No clear goals. They don’t care about retaining their current employees. Positions aren’t back filled. They expect us to learn and manage a ton of items without a clear vision or goals or reward. If someone leaves, beware to take on double or triple. When employees ask about...
