It has started. Does anyone have any updates on what they have heard so far?
They just sent a email that is helping to empower us to be knowledgeable and able to incorporate straight talk of our own by using a consistent, approved message that are aligned with CDK's business strategy. How can you compare consistent, approved... — read more
Does anyone have any information on what will be announced for the RSU Transition meetings?
It looks like they have no intention of retaining anyone, regardless of how talented and capable the employee is. Of course, maybe everything got out of control and they don't even have the possibility to retain anyone anymore?
I don't know how it is in other departments, but my department has almost more managers than workers. This is not normal and of course no company can be sustainable in this way. If CDK would get rid of at least some of them who are totally... — read more
They are probably doing this with the aim of not giving many people severance pay. It is obvious that the management is deliberately overloading their employees. Is it even worth waiting for the package here? I have no other option so I have to put... — read more
It's sad for me see this because I used to really like working here. I think the reason why CDK is losing ground to competitors is that the leadership does not have a clear business vision and goals at all. I know that some people think that... — read more
Everybody worth their salt is leaving.
We have leaders who know they're incompetent and who have surrounded themselves with yes-people so they can never hear any criticism of their decisions. That's why we keep losing our best people to layoffs and attrition. There's nobody brave enough... — read more
A friend of mine has given their notice and has inspired myself and others to do the same. The stress is ridiculous and while there are Managers and Supervisors who understand; it isn't enough to convince people to stay. CDK need to re-evaluate how... — read more
If more cuts are being planned, I'll gladly volunteer for it. I'm certain I'm not the only one who feels this way, so hopefully, the management will be smart enough to offer voluntary buyouts before any major cuts. Giving people a chance to leave on... — read more
More layoffs have been promised. Brian MacDonald does not have a clear plan for the future of CDK.
only 2.5 to 3% increase.. stock also being taken away, employees are all getting pay cuts this year.
I heard that some of the best employees were cut. I hope that everyone affected will soon find new and better jobs. I am frantically looking for new opportunities because it is easier to get a new job when you already have a new job. Is it true... — read more
Well, I guess a few of us have made it and still have a job.. Guess all is ok again. BUT welcome to the new world where there will be layoffs every quarter. So from here on out. Welcome to the new world of looking over your shoulder to see if another... — read more
ADP knew how to treat it's employees right with true dignity and respect. Ever since CDK became it's own entity it's been a joke and 3/4.
I haven't felt more anxious in a long time because I'm really worried about being a target. I was in a dilemma whether to ask the manager how likely it is that I'll be a layoff target, but I changed my mind because can you really expect an honest... — read more
Old McDonald keeps clearing out the farm, tomorrow more layoffs
I felt a huge relief because I left this miserable place recently. Perhaps I would be laid off now if I had stayed. I'm sorry for everyone affected and I'm wondering what's the extent of these layoffs?
230 people total -- a 3% RIF If he follows the same playbook as last time, expect more next quarter.
More layoffs took place yesterday, but not as wide spread as earlier in the week. I expect more through today and especially tomorrow. Please chime in if you fell victim to Plan 2025.
Can those who have been let go share how the deed was done so we can be on the look out? Also, was severance offered? Inquiring minds :) yes I am looking to get the he-l out of dodge asap. Please, if somebody is willing to provide details, it'll be... — read more
All implementation managers were let go this week plus other full time implementation specialist Like I’ve said in past comments about 22 Kforce and 33 dataset on 7-22-22 were laid off plus other CDK full timers
Should we be expecting more cuts?
I feel bad for cdk customers -- customer support wait times will go to the moon and satisfaction scores will drop to the bottom of the ocean.
I was laid off Friday 7-22-2022 I heard there was about 22 Kforce people laid off and 33 data set and few others who were hired directly with CDK as well same day. (I posted this Saturday but I don’t see my comment so I put it again plus new... — read more
I was a full timer with 3 years in implementation for front end with a great reputation within the company. Just got the news today. I’m the only one I am aware of but I’m sure more to come.
CDK has turned into a status quo company that allows no innovative thinking or individual contributions if they deviate from the norm even a little bit. Everything has to be done the same way it has always been done, because...I don't even know why... — read more

Brian Macdonald has returned and with him comes more promised layoffs. He talks about how he loves CDK and the customers yet his tune is the same old tune. He has not changed. He blames everyone else for his failures and takes credit for the success... — read more
Laying people off is never the answer to improving customer satisfaction, especially when we're already short staffed. BK worked hard the past 4 years getting the NPS scores above abysmal, only for Bowel Movement to come back and sh!t on everything... — read more
He said in a meeting that he's doing layoffs point blank, and no employee is safe.
MacDonald mentioned that there will be layoffs and that he wants to do it very quickly where it is needed. Who, when, where will they be?

We'll be talking about mass layoffs here again shortly. Nothing good can come from BM (bowel movement) being back in charge. Next, we'll hear that Rajiv is being reappointed as CTO.
I'm planning to leave in the next month or two and I'm hoping there's an exit interview because if there is, I plan to be completely honest about why I'm leaving. I especially plan to be open about my manager and his bullying management techniques... — read more
