The workplace culture at Autodata is very strong, and we have a great environment. Here we work as a team everyday, and I believe this is the most important to achieve success.

Very much a call center mentality
Automotive Feature Analyst (Former Employee) –  London, ON30 September 2017
Just like the title says, it is very much like a call centre in terms of the blatant favouritism and BS that goes on. Management is virtually incompetent, they will constantly give you reviews about how you "are not meeting your goal", yet never give you a hard goal to strive for. Ask for a raise and you basically get ostracized. Management constantly pats themselves on the back for meeting their targets on the backs of other's hard work. Professionally speaking this is truly one of the worst places I have ever worked.
Pros
encouraged to go get up and walk around
Cons
inept managers, constant negativity, no direction, no chance for advancement, no raise

Great people to work with, low pay and limited growth opportunities
Analyst (Former Employee) –  London, ON12 June 2017
Great relaxed atmosphere and culture at the company. Management is definitely making progress in dealing with retention and turnover, but pay is still not competitive relative to other local options.

Laid back atmosphere
Manager (Current Employee) –  London, ON12 May 2017
Small company doing big business. Has more of a "mom & pop" feel to it. Management optics are that they are "over their heads" with the company at this point. Considerations towards obtaining some "Enterprise Level", Experienced/Mature Leadership/Management into the organization would help support their growth.
Pros
Parking
Cons
Poor facility

Management all talk, no action
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  London, ON12 January 2017
Great place to work for awhile and get some experience in the software industry. Co-workers were great. Upper management the biggest problem. All talk, no action. They use employee social activities to balance their lack of management skills. Like the song - Be there for a good time, not a long time - Very high turnover of employees.
Pros
Employee social activities
Cons
Very clickie inner management circle

Dont treat employees better
Ex-Empl (Former Employee) –  London, ON15 August 2016
Management do not care about the team. The only ones that benefit are their group of people / lobby. GPTW nomination is an eyewash. There is certainly high rate of attrition in the team members.
No one actually cares. HR hardly wants to make a change.

Need to treat employees better
IT Operations (Current Employee) –  London, Ontario8 September 2015
As with most companies, management like to stick their head in the sand as to be blind to problems that run rampant.

Policies and procedures are a joke as trying to enforce them only result in parties going around you and escalating until they get someone to approve their "exception".

There are some truly smart people who ant to do the right thing but weak management, poor processes, unwillingness to address fundamentals (i.e. hiring more resources instead of just making the current ones put in more hours) and other cultural problems (i.e. swearing at the front line triagers or calling someone out in front of everyone you can think of) really hamper Autodata.

Its unfortunate because there is potential here if you believe the "we are going to change" message.
Pros
Allowed to go for small walks, coworkers often want to do the right thing, ability to work from home on rare occassion (with 24 hrs notice), fair pay
Cons
On call hours are brutal, company doesn't take advisement of technical staff, sales team sells unrealistic timelines, poor culture

All Work little play
Software Development (Former Employee) –  London On21 October 2014
This company has a reputation for eating people up and spitting them out. They go through more bodies in a year than most companies do in 10. There is always a new project coming at you with completely ridiculous timelines. A great place to come and learn but if you are established in your career you will soon realize you made a wrong turn.
Pros
free breakfast once a month
Cons
The Managment and the locatation EOA...lock the car

Full I.T. web based project management
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  London, ON29 December 2013
Working on delivering I.T. projects for the clients and meeting their requirements and timelines.
It is a full cycle of software development and project management.

This job requires a technical background and a lot of communication and management skills as it involves a lot of stakeholders and third parties across the country and across the borders

The hardest part is to keep projects on track with all challenges that the project may face and to meet timelines
Pros
Fast paced environment, one team feeling, employees and management are empowered
Cons
running multiple projects to be delivered within a short time may affect qualities sometimes
