Featured Review

Current Employee - Principal Developer

I have been working at Auto Trader UK full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

There’s always interesting work to pick up as a developer no matter what your level of experience is. And even when that task that you’ve done 10 times before lands on your desk again, you have the... freedom to innovate and make it as interesting/challenging as you like. The tech is moving really fast (infrastructure, languages, frameworks) so there are high chances you’ll be constantly learning something new next to people that can help you improve. The above together with the great offices and lots of great people make AT the best company I’ve worked for.

Cons

Some times, people that could help you with something are so busy that they cannot spend time on doing so and that can slow things down a bit and be a bit frustrating.

Advice to Management

Give the people that have the knowledge more time to disseminate it to everyone else.

Former Intern - Copy Writer

I worked at SMRS for less than a year

Pros

A brilliant introduction to the industry. I loved the environment and everyone made me feel very welcome.

Cons

Zero. Can't speak highly enough of my time here.
