CDK recruiting at OSCON?

Was attending OSCON this week, and they have a booth already recruiting new employees less than a week after laying off 500+ people. What a screwed up company, with zero loyalty to their own. All they care about is inflating the stock price for the... read more

More rumors, more stressing

Now people at the office are saying that we can expect more layoffs before the end of the month. Can somebody here please tell me this is not true? I'm hoping it's just a case of speculation gone wild. I need a few weeks without worrying about my... read more

This had NOTHING to do with performance

As someone in management at CdK let me be clear: front line managers were in no way involved with this layoff. We found out literally the day before the layoff. We did. It select who was to go, only told it was happening. Many people were let go with... read more

I see things haven't changed

No more reviews on CDK Facebook Page

Did anyone else notice all reviews were removed from the CDK Global Facebook page? I would love it if all of our customers would email MacDonald directly with their complaints. Maybe he can resolve all their issues with "straight talk."

Another brilliant town hall

This is a gem - told us that the reorg preceded the RIF, and then went on to show us a temporary org chart. Man, they must think we're id--ts.

Customer First!

The resounding battle cry at CDK. Yet every move dictates the exact opposite. Here is the priority: 1 CDK 2 CDK 3 CDK 4 Shareholders (they don’t know they’re being screwed yet; think Toy’s R Us) 5 Customer 6 Employee’s

Things will only get worse

Let's face it. CDK is being prepared for a sale. And once that happens, nobody is safe. Literally nobody. I can bet that within a year of a sale, at least half of the workforce will be laid of or fired or be forced out in some other way. Anybody... read more

Call Center

Worked for CDK for 2 years. They hired some good talent and under paid them. My management always said we were not a call center, however, they ran the operations like a call center. I sincerely feel bad about the layoffs. I left on my own due to the... read more

Who decided?

Can somebody explain to me how the decision was made on who will get cut? Why did we lose some of our best people? This makes no sense whatsoever. This certainly was not based on merit, from what I can see. I guess it was more about how much you make... read more

Any rhyme or reason to who was cut in Seattle? Anyone know the numbers?

Not sure this will work out

Just wondering, how are departments and locations that are now left with less than bare bones after the latest layoff round faring today? Are the few people who are left expected to do the work of everybody who was let go? Which, I know, is... read more

Is this really how it's done?!?!?

CDK sent my friend a meeting invite - a normal daily thing since she works/ed remotely - and when she joined the meeting, all the other participants were grayed out/hidden... so she waited and finally a recorded video appeared notifying the group... read more

What's going on?

What the hell is CDK trying to do?
