Great Tech company with a lack of focus on the end consumer
CCE (Former Employee) –  Dundrum, County Dublin10 October 2019
Cartrawler has some of the best Tech qualified personal available in Ireland. Sadly though on the customer front there is a lack of understanding and resources to stem the 30% contact rate and 60% attrition rate.

Business model based on high turnover
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Dublin15 April 2019
Extremely high turnover. Management focus on attracting new staff instead of maintaining current employees. Language speakers have a higher workload and are not compensated for this. You will regret it if you join Cartrawler and speak a foreign language. The majority of top management have left over the last 6 months which is a clear sign there are problems. Agents are micro managed like children and get pulled aside if they spent too long on a toilet break
Pros
They higher very skilled and capable staff
Cons
Staff are very disatsified so they leave

Bad company to work for
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Ireland23 February 2019
Poor salary for the amount of work you will have to do. Your job won't be appreciate. They will lie to you from the moment you will have your interview. No progression in the company. You won't be treat like a human, you will be a robot and only thing will matter will be the number of work done. Special treatment if you are related with people within the company.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything. Hours. Overloaded with duties, salary and no benefits

Really enjoyed my time there. The Spots & social club is fantastic. Lots of learning opportunity and training. Great opportunity to take on responsibility early in your career.

Poor company to work for, very policital- one to avoid
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Dundrum, County Dublin19 July 2018
When I first joined there was a fun, hardworking culture where effort was recognised and rewarded.

Now its just a hardworking company devoid of any teamwork, fun or morale among staff amid multiple restructures and people being let go without any exlplanation to those remaining leaving an uneasy feeling across whole departments and the organisation.

Pros
It pays

Some good genuine hardworking, clever people

Dynamic, high tech company where you can learn a lot

Nice office space


Cons
Doesn't pay well.

Previous selling points to work there around benefits and perks almost completely shelved and rolled back on since I started working there.

Very high pressure- unrealistic deadlines imposed upon your work from mgt who had little knowledge of the scale of task involved. Get it right and your manager did a great job on bringing it in on time, get it wrong and your neck was on the chopping block.

Hugely political organisation- promotions are based on being in the 'in crowd' or having worked previously in a certain online betting company.

Lack of career progression- save you fulfill either or both of the above criteria.

Lack of job security

Genuine,very capable people sidelined- saw multiple instances of workmates being passed over for less well able but politically well connected people.

Poor managment- misguide whole teams or departments along the way to demoralising those working with them without any evident purpose or end goal save for self aggrandisement of mgt.

Your ability to learn is dependent upon the luck of the draw- you can
  more... learn as long as you avoid where a bean counter has been wrongly promoted or a former employee of a certain online betting company.

Doesn't take care of staff- long hours, short lunch breaks and weekend work encouraged but to no end for you personally or your career.

Constantly conflicting demands placed upon you and your tasks without any joined up thinking from the top.

A big corporate that wants to be a cool trendy tech company
Cartrawler Operations (Current Employee) –  Dundrum, County Dublin25 May 2018
A company that is desperately trying to be many things but not succeeding at any. It wants to compete with the tech companies but cannot offer the same benefits and culture. It has become big corporate and many staff are leaving after many years of service disillusioned.

Fun place to work, great people, high pressure
Manager (Current Employee) –  Dublin9 May 2018
Cartrawler is a very good place to work. There is a really nice culture with genuinely nice people. Even though it has grown rapidly, it still has the feel of a smaller start up. This does have its down sides, at times there can be an element of disorganisation and fall down in communications. On saying this, this is recognised and improvements are going in the right direction. Cartrawler cares about its people and has a desire to improve. I am proud to work in Cartrawler and would recommend it.
Pros
Good People, good social life, events etc.
Cons
can be high pressured

Lack of leadership and job clarity
Content Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Dundrum, County Dublin8 March 2017
Over the last 12 months I have really seen a lack of any real guidance or plan in a number of departments. Departments have gone through multiple structure changes and people have been let o without warning or explanation to those left behind. This created a tense and unfriendly atmosphere with no real team morale. People were asked to completely change roles at the whim of management and did not receive any clear indications to what their goals or targets were and got no proper training in these new roles.
Pros
The people for the most part are sound
Cons
lack of leadership, lack of advancement, very poor benefits, below average pay

Integracion. Divertido. Innovador.
Operations Representative (Former Employee) –  Dublin, IE6 February 2017
Me ha gustado mucho esta experiencia por el sentido de inclusion e integración de la empresa. Los empleados participaban en la toma de desiciones. El ambiente de trabajo era solidario y con amplio sentido de cooperación. El aprendizaje mas valioso obtenido se basa en técnicas de venta y de satisfacción al cliente.

in one word AMAZING
Team leader (Current Employee) –  Dublin19 May 2016
Amazing place to work, international multicultural and modern environment. The headquarter is in Dublin this means that all the departments are in the same building which is a good opportunity for employee to apply to potential new internal job positions.

Great opportunity and great place to work.
Quality Assurance and Automation Team Member (Former Employee) –  Dublin11 May 2016
I was lucky enough to intern with CarTrawler for three months last year. I learned an incredible amount while also contricbuting to the team, being given responsibility for substantial work. The people I worked with were extremely welcoming and supportive and the atmosphere within the company was supportive, creative and one I hope to return to.
