Great place to gain experience in various aspects of Implementation
Business Solutions Consultant (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC12 January 2019
This is a great place to work for if you don't mind travelling every week and working long hours.
You need to be very versatile in your knowledge and you need to work well under pressure.
Pros
expense account, lots of travelling
Cons
long hours

Great in the past..... Now Driven by Shareholders
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Canada12 December 2018
The company when it was ADP was the best company in the world to work for in my opinion. When the Dealer Services business unit was spun off and CDK Global was born the company took a real dive. The shareholder greed and stock price was ruthless. Never could I have imagined that the company could have turned so badly so quickly.
Pros
Great pay though declining year over year
Cons
GREED by shareholders.

Management is horrible
Client Manager (Former Employee) –  London, ON27 September 2018
It's hard to trust management, they don't have the customer or employees in mind.
Brian McDonald only cares about himself and getting his yearly bonus. He does not have the associates of CDK Global in his best interests.

Unfortunate waste of talented people
Operations (Former Employee) –  Canada21 July 2018
CEO goal here is to ensure company is financially attractive for sale and this means that product quality suffers and strategy suffers and ultimately employees and customers suffer.

Modérateur de Groupes Performance (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC17 July 2018
Très grosse entreprise qui a fait plusieurs acquisitions depuis quelques années et qui se cherche une identité. Les sondages internes démontrent un faible niveau de satisfaction et d'engagement des employés.
Pros

Not a bad place

I enjoyed working here but unfortunately work life balance is very work heavy in my role. Other roles have a much better work life balance though.

crapshoot
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON10 June 2016
Old school payroll/sales company culture passed down from its predecessor ADP

I worked at an awesome company called ONE-EIGHTY it was fast-paced engaging and a tight unit... until ADP came and bought the company.
Pros
lunch and learns, pays for training and certifications
Cons
company lacks inspiration and vision

Corporate environment and highly demanding
Technical Analyst (Current Employee) –  North York, ON13 November 2015
The good part of CDK Global is the income and benefits. In this respect the company treats its employees very well. There are retirement contribution perks, great health benefits, and easy access to career development tools (e.g. certificates in tech and business, college/university accreditation)

However, as a large corporation (formerly part of ADP - an even larger one) it is suffering from stagnation and short sighted vision. The company treats its employees well but also proves that the employees are disposable and the first target if costs must be cut.

CDK Global continues its heritage from ADP in being focused solely on business acquisition instead of finding innovative solutions. The point is to bring in new business, sometime unethically, rather than create better products and support models so that we can offer and extract value more effectively.

Lastly there is no growth opportunity en masse. There are exceptions here and there but over all, it is not a place to grow. The corporate structure and culture enforces a strong divide between staff and management, support and sales. It is very difficult to jump the fence for new hires and it is openly accepted that you will not grow out of your initial role for the first 5 to 7 years. This would not be so bad if the entry level employees were not under constant threat of redundancy.

In summation, it is a typical megalith corporation, and the only value for employees is to use it as a stepping stone for getting experience in the corporate realm. This is not a company to tie yourself to.
Pros
Solid benefits and income
Cons
No growth or security
