      Pros

      I’ve been with the company for almost 5 years and don’t plan to leave. They take great care of their employees. Hello Summer Friday’s! They really stress work-life balance.

      Cons

      I miss face time in the office, but that’s because of Covid not Carfax.

      Pros

      -Amazing, memorable people to create new friendships and have fun at work -Personal Development Fridays -No time tracking -Massive bonuses (12-18%) -Decent place to start your career

      Cons

      -Base salary is not competitive in the current job market (Senior Salary: 90-110k, Intermediate 80-100k, Junior: 70-80k) -Large portion of the department has left for much larger compensation packages -Culture is drifting from the small startup atmosphere that made it great, to a more corporate atmosphere -Depending on your manager, your career will either excel or hit a brick wall (inconsistent valuation of employees) -Reactive organization rather than Proactive (waits until things become a large problem before dealing with it immediately)

      Pros

      We as a company are so spoiled! CARFAX keeps their employees in mind in pretty much everything they do. I don’t feel like a number working here. Work - life balance, ability to work from home, monthly/ quarterly swag mail outs, fun virtual happy hours, and so much more can be expected from this great company. I’m so thankful to be a part of this corporate family!

      Cons

      Flat organization. The health benefits are not the best.

      Pros

      Very positive upbeat environment with lots of emphasis on community both work and outside of work. Good opportunity to learn and develop as the company is always investing in new technology and progressing as a company. We're looking at a second season of 4 day work weeks in the summer without having to sacrifice time off or salary.

      Cons

      Not sure I've seen any cons yet.

      Pros

      I left and came back after realizing how much I missed the mission, the people, and the culture. 1. Great Work-Life Balance with summer Fridays off! 2. Lots of recognition for good work 3. Some of the best people to work with anywhere 4. Tons of perks, swag, and fun events to maintain engagement and morale

      Cons

      None. This place has it all!
