    I worked at CDK Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pros? The view from the office is amazing and you never have to take home work.

    Cons

    Co-workers constantly joked about committing suicide because they hated the job so much. Eventually, someone thought it funny to place a jar on top of one of the cubicles and have everyone put money in the jar each time they wanted to commit suicide. You would regularly hear the drop of a coin in the jar and the office would erupt in laughter. MIND YOU, this is happening right next to the managers who laughed along too. And if you think that alone is bad enough, they eventually took the money and had a pizza party. Absolutely disgraceful. When if comes to promotions, I knew people who had been with CDK for many years and were only a Web Design Specialist 1. But the people who were in good with management would get raises before their 1 year anniversary. Also, as a contractor they will tell you they are going to hire you full time, but I was one of the last contractors to actually have that happen. They just string along contractors with false hope BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY HAVE CHEAPER LABOR IN INDIA. And then there is the bed bugs. Holy moly. The other reviews are true. Bed bugs were found (again and again) so they fumigated the office overnight. Many of us asked to work from home that day because we didn't feel comfortable sitting in an enclosed office space with no open windows. Needless to say, we didn't get to go home. And last but not least......CDK HR is HORRENDOUS . This is going to make me loose my anonymity, but who cares. I suffered a back injury while working at CDK. Instead of just letting me work from home while I healed, they forced me to take a leave of absence. Fine. Whatever. I'll take a month off work. But when I came back I made it through half a day before my back and nerve pain had returned, so HR sent me home, this time to WORK FROM HOME while they found me a new chair. Prior to coming back to work, they requested my Physical Therapist "prescribe" a proper chair for me. You should have seen my PTs face when I asked her for this. She literally said "Im a Doctor... not an interior designer." But she put together a bulleted list of requirements for my new chair. After several months, they told me they had a chair for me-- they told me it was a free sample that a vendor sent them (that should have been my big clue into their ineptness). When I got there, it was a chair that DID NOT meet all of the prescribed requirements, and again I only was able to make it half a day before going home again. IT TOOK THEM 3 MORE MONTHS until they were able to find me a suitable chair. SMH. I left CDK as soon as I had the chance and have never regretted it.
