    J'ai travaillé chez TrueCar en contrat permanent (Plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    - Good pay
    - Oceanfront property

    Inconvénients

    Truecar is a mess. Ever since the old Carwoo guys took over , it’s been a down hill show. Tommy surrounds him self with people who won’t out shine him because he is insecure and this results in us having terrible management.

    There was a lay-off recently this year and it took down the already low morale into the gutter.

    There is a big brown nose culture and either you’re in the loop with the car woo guys are you can be left to dry when cuts happen.

    The company is not making money. The CEO is super old school. The new head of product has zero ability to inspire and give good production direction.

    This company is very much headed downhill. All decisions are rushed and not well thought.

    In my time there I had on average 2 managers a year. Constantly changing seats and buildings. This company is the epitome of unorganized.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Stop the bro culture
    - Stop the secrecy and behind the scene politics
    - Stop forcing the use of scrum and create some standards and process
    - Get product org to figure out what the hell they are doing.

    Senior tech & product management has let the organization go to hell. If you’re a talented engineer or aspiring manager/ director in tech or product, look literally anywhere else.

    Avantages

    Salaries on par with West LA tech companies. Nice office.

    Inconvénients

    Be skeptical of positive reviews written on here from 2018 onward.

    TrueCar culture, already bad, became toxic in 2018. This trickled down from the top. Rather than confirming/denying rumors, leadership allows misinformation to spread. Top talent at the company took jobs elsewhere. This began in late 2017, and ramped up in 2018 when everyone realized that things were only getting worse.

    “Unlimited PTO” is not present here, and leadership laughs about it. If you don’t infiltrate the elite circle of white bros, you are replaceable, and the powers-that-be will not hesitate to drop you in a heartbeat.

    There’s a reason why there are so many negative reviews… I’d think long and hard before accepting a position here.

    Conseils à la direction

    Listen to employee feedback, but it’s way too late for that now.

    J'ai travaillé chez TrueCar en contrat permanent

    Avantages

    - Benefits package was generous
    - They pay plenty of unqualified people fairly well
    - Parking garage if you need it

    Inconvénients

    - Terrible office culture all around
    - Weak programmers and a bottom-feeder platform
    - Not a single person in a leadership role who inspires confidence ANYWHERE in the company. And all the "worker bees" see this and resent it
    - It's a second-rate talent tech company that is mediocre all-across
    - Stock price has decrease about 75% since I have been there, and continues to plummet as CarGurus goes up.
    - Awful HR, I never had a development program or honest review, but they hire lots of unqualified managers in both product and business lines who mostly drink at local bars and make awful business decisions while we are still working in the office

    Conseils à la direction

    Blow it up and sell yourselves to a pro (Edmunds? CarGurus? Cox?). Keep your dealer-network guys, but get rid off all the business and tech assets in LA and move to Austin or Atlanta, because you will always be an expensive afterthought on the West Coast and in this sector. Your management plainly sucks, at almost every level, and you need to reboot it in a different location with different people instead of hiring more of your "bros" to drive this already crappy company further into the ground. Do you really need to wait for your stock to hit $4 a share before you do this?

    Avantages

    ...If doing relevant work, learning, and your career are not your priorities. I know that sounds cheeky, but I say this as pragmatically as possible. A lot of people actually don't prioritize these things, and want a clock-in, clock-out job where the overall potential of a company and expectations are low enough where you can get buy with minimal effort and care.

    Truecar compensation is fair, so are the benefits, so if this is what you're looking for, it might be a good fit.

    The nature of the work, being tied to the business that it's in (Dealers, cars), doesn't really present anything impactful, so it's pretty easy day to day within product and tech. There's nothing really meaningful to solve = not too hard on the brain.

    Benefits are pretty good, although they steadily took away perk after perk in my time there. Most recently I heard they locked down working from home, which by far was the best perk.

    Work life balance was really really good. Maybe too good due to the lack of interesting projects.

    Like a lot of companies with immature cultures, the best "Pro" tends to be that you and your coworkers suffer through the same experiences, and that ironically creates it's own benefits of working with empathetic people. If only that teamwork could be applied to something worthwhile...

    Inconvénients

    In my time there, Truecar never really had a strong tech and/or product leader. It's currently being run by inexperienced acquihires from a smaller, less-relevant company that was going under. Unfortunately their poor decision making and lack of experience has painfully shown in a record number of people leaving.

    Record, numbers. I know you see/hear this a lot on Glassdoor for various companies with poor cultures, but in my entire career I have never seen such a voluntary exodus of talent relative to the size of the department/company.

    There's a severe... severe... severe... lack of consideration to diversity within management. Everyone is white, and everyone is within this inner circle of acquihires. Every... one. It's gotten so obvious, that even the other white people have been vocally uncomfortable about the optics of it all. It's evolved to the point where we used to just hopelessly joke about it, because what else can you do?

    As written in another review, it's a bad sign when your own HR department is writing scathing reviews about the company. I felt bad because i used to see HR people constantly behind closed-door exit meetings. I can only imagine how that wears you down to always have to bear the brunt of the poor leadership.

    No mobility in career. Titles at truecar do NOT indicate ability or aptitude. They're essentially awarded to coincide with whatever your pay scale is. I've seen VP's there only have 1 direct report, directors have none.

    While the CEO seems to have done a good job for what he was hired for and has generally received good ratings, at this point the lack of intervention to help fix the culture and leader issues for the other c-levels has to be factored into that opinion.

    Conseils à la direction

    I feel like this section needs to be rephrased because no management from any company in the history of Glassdor has ever read this box and thought "hey, lets do that!".
