Employed by DFX for 5 years. Employees are amazing and hardworking but management is lacking and upper management was bad. Promoted by management but they never push through the formality of the new roles and titles with HR so you’re never compensated properly. Laid off over 100 employees and then rehired and promoted for the roles to cut cost at their employees expense even while they were already underpaid and overworked. Has happened multiple times.
Company is leading in their industry and doing well. They take care of their employees and have a fun company culture with focus on one team and the bigger picture. However, room for advancement is lacking and company needs to restructure their management and departments to increase communication and accountability.
I loved what I was doing at dealer-fx but they were micromanaging me so much I left after 4 months. Management wanted me to include them in EVERY email I was sending out. They were on my case for every little thing. Couldn’t go for a bathroom break without a question asked. Most people in my department were working from home and I was alone in the office all the time, they wound not let me work from home.
Growing company but the lack of delivering on the promises they make and the fact that they tolerate average employees and even promote them over other better qualified employees is unfortunate.
The is vision from the top, but a lack of qualified and educated managers to carry out the vision presented. I am confident Dealer Fx will eventually work this out.
All in all a scrappy Canadian company trying to make a positive difference in a challenging industry
reasonable work life balance and good training
Limited advancement opportunities and sub par compensation
