Many employees consider the management style of CarGurus a breath of fresh air because it falls outside of the typical “corporate” mold. It’s supportive, readily available, and hands-on. Senior management is open and accessible, and trusts employees to do their best without micromanagement. The flexibility and personal investment from employees fosters a community atmosphere.
Something management encourages within teams is friendly competition and recognition. CarGurus uses oversized trophies that rotate between top sales performers, as well as a sales bell that employees ring and autograph after hitting certain metrics. Mirrored with the collaborative, open environment of the office, CarGurus aims to foster a company that employees feel invested in.
