    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    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.
