    I have been working at Edmunds.com full-time

    Pros

    Edmunds really takes care of their employees, especially during remote work in the pandemic. There are small things like Thinking Thursdays and extending Summer Fridays that really help with recharging and becoming a more productive worker. I was beyond burnt out from my previous company because of being overworked in a remote environment, which I imagine a lot of people are facing right now. Quitting that job and being hired at Edmunds has completely changed that, and my work-life balance is so amazing now. Meetings are focused and productive, deadlines and expectations are manageable, and I feel very rewarded for the work that I am doing. Weekly departmental and Cadillac Catch-up meetings with the CEO have been great for fostering innovation and cross-pollination of different domains. Coming from a fast-paced product-driven company, this has been amazing to experience, with time in the week actually dedicated towards growth and learning outside of immediate job responsibilities. The people here are some of the smartest and respectful people I have ever worked with, and as a remote new-hire I have felt super welcomed, especially with the Workplace Experience and PITSTOP teams making the transition very easy and accommodating during my onboarding.

    Cons

    It can be overwhelming at times when ramping up on automotive domain knowledge (especially for newcomers), internal Edmunds tooling, and documentation on all of the different processes and systems, but this has been getting better with time and experience. My advice for new hires is to be mindful of the Dunning-Kruger effect and to have a growth mindset.

    Pros

    There is a reason Edmunds is recognized as one of the best places to work in Los Angeles. The Company values flexibility and wellness. There are weekly offerings geared at supporting employees' personal and professional growth.

    Cons

    We haven't been able to enjoy the beautiful office due to COVID-19, but the Company has been creative with ways to keep us all connected and engaged. They also made sure we have all the tools we need to do our jobs effectively from home.

    Pros

    They talk a good game

    Cons

    This is the worst company for any ethnicity out side of Caucasian to work for the company is racist. They do not support other cultures or back grounds. When you complain they harass you even more. This company does not support inclusion down to the owner. If you are African American you are likely to need counseling when you leave this company.
