Corporate environment and highly demanding

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Culture organisationnelle

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.
