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

    Pros

    Good benefits along with a select group of folks who are passionate about changing culture.

    Cons

    You change a culture that doesn’t want to change. If you come from a culture that encouraged challenging and growing through challenging, then Autotrader isn’t the place you want to be. If you’re interested in being somewhere to get a check and keep repeating the same mistakes over and over then Autotrader will serve you well.

    Advice to Management

    You have break your command and control culture. You have to empower the skilled Product folks to make decisions on their own and allow them to find the path that makes sense to achieve results for the shopper. Stop being dealer-centric. Shoppers are what dealers and OEM’s pay for. Focus the efforts there and give product managers and product owners the vision to chart that path. Also, stop trying to change the model without fixing the culture. Squads and Marty Cagan aren’t going to solve your culture problems.
