Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum

Great perks but difficult to advance
Executive Director (Former Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAMarch 6, 2017
Solid company with some great people, but they seem to lay off a lot of people arbitrarily. Moreover, unless you are in the inner circle, there is no real opportunity for advancement.
Pros
Free bagels on Fridays!
Cons
Hard to advance

It was an average work experience. Things to love about the company, and things to hate about the company. The workplace experience is the best part about it.

Result Oriented Workplace, family owned, one of the best places to work
Senior Database Developer (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAFebruary 9, 2017
Edmunds is a great place to work. The owners are constantly trying new things to win the coveted "Best Place to Work" awards. They practice Agile, Result Only Workplace and have a new, beautiful office.

You are allowed to work from home so you often use Google Hangouts to attend various scrums & meetings. Because of the ROW culture, you often have to schedule meetings with co-workers to discuss issues and do data transfer.

There is a new emphasis on driving to results and being accountable. The down side is people are not as willing to stop and have a casual conversation about the history of some system or piece of code. So you have to be more aggressive than you used to be getting information from people.
Pros
Result Only Workplace, beautiful new office

Results Oriented Work Environment - Amazing Culture!
Account Executive/Sales (Current Employee) –  FloridaJanuary 17, 2017
Edmunds is the most amazing company I have ever worked for! They're not only one of integrity and respect, but they honor both their internal and external partners like no other I've seen! They value family highly and pay at the high end of the spectrum. I give them a 5 star rating!
Pros
Integrity, highest pay, healthcare, Rowe, advancement opportunities and more!

Overall good for career advancement, learned a lot
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAOctober 22, 2015
The company makes changes on a whim, jeopardizing job security and clients. Fun work environment but often overworked and under valued. Overall good morale in the company but there is a lack of communication between departments and management.

Privately owned tech company with a lot of freedom to set your schedule the way you like it.
Sr. Digital Content Administrator (Former Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAFebruary 19, 2015
The best perk about this company, depending on which position you are in, is ROWE. That stands for Results Only Work Environment. Basically, you're allowed to work from wherever you feel the most productive or comfortable. There is no micro-management at least with my team, and everyone gets along well for the most part.
If you do find yourself in the office however, there are many little perks they have, such as fruit infused water, fruits every morning, ping pong table, and a small video game arcade.
Now on to the not so pretty. Although I haven't had a bad experience with any one of my managers, there are the usual office politics going on with those who fall into favor with the managers being promoted up the ladder. Those who don't are either let go or kept in their current positions for a longer time without any possibility for promotion.
There is also a problem with communication. Not all the teams are aware of what the other team contributes and therefore doesn't realize the value they bring to the company. This also causes problems with any of the teams need more support. The same questions arise over and over and this creates unnecessary delays. This is especially apparent at the executive level where they might hand down initiatives that they think make sense, but really ends up benefiting only a handful of people, not the whole company.
Pros
Free food, fruits, snacks, good work/life balance, nice bonuses.
Cons
Lack of effective communication, cronyism

Great company to work for!
IT infrastructure Intern (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAOctober 21, 2014
This company has ranked by the LA business journal for one of the best company to work for 4 years in a roll now, and they certainly do live up to their expectations. Even as an intern I get paid for what I do and qualify for many perks that a full time employee has. Work/life balance is great and the culture is very progressive, if you are a west side hipster who is very innovative and techie then this place is for you!
Pros
Free lunch some time, free time off, great culture
Cons
none

Rowe (Results Only Work Environment) Very Progressive
DEALER SUPPORT SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CANovember 25, 2013
The organization truly sets out for satisfaction not only from its customers but also its employees; and it is evident in all the perks the company provides, from daily fresh fruit and Friday Bagels, to upgraded powder room amenities and freshly popped pop corn. And it is truly progressive in implementing a Results Only Work Environment work place, with the goal being higher productivity and greater overall sense of autonomy and pride in the work produced; however, it still has pockets of teams whose management has not fully embraced this and may lead to some feeling less than autonomous, empowered and effective.

The physical workplace and the culture of innovation, urgency, integrity and transparency are all a refreshing spin on how an adult workplace should be.
Pros
Great physical work environment, amenities, co workers, feeling valued
Cons
Inconsistent execution of ROWE

Horrible

Horrible working conditions, the worst management and owners ever. They don't treat you like a working force inside the company. They don't care about their employees.
Cons
horrible place

Two Thumbs Up!
Data (Current Employee) –  Santa MonicaSeptember 18, 2012
Overall, this is a terrific place to work. The office space is really cool, but it's the people that make it. No brilliant jerks allowed. Extremely casual environment (flip flops every day!) and the benefits are fantastic. Recently instituted a 'Results Only Work Environment' philosophy which means you can work where you want, when you want, as long as the work gets done. Also did away with vacation/sick/personal days - you get to take the time you need; as long as you're achieving your results, its all good. Has a progressive thinking senior leadership team with big plans to grow the organization long into the future.
Pros
fantastic benefits and a great office environment
Cons
some areas have weak management/leadership
