Featured Review

Former Employee - Account Director

I worked at BDA full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

ability to make some bonus money if you get the right accounts, without inflated target budgets. fun people.

Cons

tons of turnover internally, which leads to lots of inconsistent workflow and a bunch of needless exercises. Lots of politics and gossip.

Current Employee - Account Manager

I have been working at Auto Trader UK full-time for less than a year

Pros

- Excellent Management Style - Truly live the values - Office Location - Loyalty - They look after their people I've only been with AT for 6 months now and honestly, at nearly 40 years old,... I have found a job I can see myself retiring in. The management, at all levels, are approachable and I have never been made to feel like I'm putting people out. The company values are not just posters on the walls, they are lived! 3 weeks into my employment with AT we went in to lockdown, a traumatic time for most employees in the UK, especially for those who hadn't been with their company prior to the Government deadline of 29th February. I was well looked after and re-assured at every step that my job was safe. Approximately 3 weeks later we were put on furlough and again the same support and re-assurance continued. Now that we're working from home the company have recognised that people's mental and physical health can be impacted by the situation, they have done everything in their power to minimise the risk to us.

Cons

If I'm being nit-picky I would say the recruitment process is too long so prepare yourself for a 8-12 week process. Now that I am in the business though I can understand why, anyone willing to wait... that long is showing they are prepared to commit to the company.
