    Pros

    Lots of side benefits, high salary

    Cons

    No WFH (management will offer in an interview but won't deliver), Lots of legacy code, nearly all of which has a bus factor of 1.

    Advice to Management

    Suit your actions to your words. Try giving meaningful feedback quickly rather than blame slowly.

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

      Pros

      Great compensation, innovative technology and business model. I enjoyed my initial entry from applying to speaking to a recruiter, to working with my manager and many other senior managers. Great benefits.

      Cons

      Toxic management, and if you weren't part of the inner circle, you were outcasted and promotions were out the window. I experienced discrimination and unfortunately, I didn't leave the company, I left the people there, from managers on up. Don't expect to be treated well if you aren't part of the 'it' crowd.

      Advice to Management

      Be fair to all, and don't discriminate on age. Otherwise great business to be in.

      I have been working at CarGurus full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have been at CarGurus for a couple of years and work as a Regional Sales Director in Dallas Texas. The role is challenging but very rewarding and I am part of a great team. I have a lot of freedom to manage my territory and even though I work alone, I am well supported. Our inside account managers and sales team have my back and I know I can always count on my fellow field team members. At CarGurus we work...

      Pros

      The best company I have worked for...literally. Since the first day of contact, my experience with CarGurus has been amazing. The interview process was well facilitated and the recruiter I was in touch with gave me a good background on the company and the role. The training for new hires went very well and it was obvious that this company is headed on a rocketship trajectory. Some of the brightest minds I have encountered...
