Portland and Seattle offices will be closed

They are moving everyone from two buildings into one and eliminating two floors worth of office space. This was sent out this morning: Dear Team: In 2016, we announced that we would create a new Customer Experience Center (CEC) in Norwood. Over the... read more

How is Rajiv still the CTO??

Seriously... I’ve never worked with such a petty, unquestionably unqualified executive.. I’m sure there’s many other issues, but he can’t be helping the situation given his toxic, political gamesmanship... all that seems to be left in engineering are... read more

VP Major Meeting with CTA’s in Norwood CVR

Not sure what’s going on, but the Vice President over CVR is meeting with all of the CTA’s tomorrow. They are actually shutting down the call center for an hour for this meeting which is highly unusual.

Good idea

So let's get serious. We know the products, the dealers, the market - there are now more of us with knowledge on the outside than on the inside most likely. I'll bet many have not signed a non compete and for those that did, they aren't forever... read more

CDK is not a good company

There's many companies out there where most people are happy. Those are good companies. If CDK were a good company you wouldn't go to work or go online and see and hear nothing but people ranting about how terrible it is. Yeah there's always a few... read more

ELT visits

I heard BK and the ELT are coming to the Portland office tomorrow to meet with employees. Haven't head about this at other locations. Maybe someone should ask him why we have not been backfilling all the jobs lost from the layoff and after. Thankful... read more

Tough calendar in 2019

Every $1 the stock drops now is $138,000 loss for BMc. If there is a weak Q2 (and I think it will be) I could foresee it falling another $5-7/sh before end of Q3. That is half the value it was just 9 months ago. Under the Accelerated Share Repurchase... read more

CDK Digital Advertising

What is the scoop on this? Does GM now let their dealerships choose website provders? BK has said in interviews he wants to shift focus away from advertising. If I am in Seattle or Detroit will I continue to havea job?

New quarterly dividend of $0.15 / share! Woohoo!

As employee morale and customer loyalty/stickiness are swirling around the bottom of the bowl, the turds at the top are taking care of each other and financializing more. What a company!
