Great Tech company with a lack of focus on the end consumer

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.

The people make it. They are friendly, supportive and hard working. If you like fast paced work with great people and an enjoyable office then this will be the right fit.
Pros
Good benefits package.
Cons
Can be difficult to get to if your not on the Luas or the correct bus route. No Parking offered.

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.

Dynamic, high tech company where you can learn a lot

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.

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

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.
