    Strong competition - its a pro rather than a con! Mindsets and beliefs need to vary with pacing time and opportunity.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I found out about Avis Budget Group through a friend. He had interned at ABG in the summer during his college career. He had nothing but great things to say about the company. He reccomended that I'd be a good fit in the CLE department based on my past jobs. I applied thinking that I wouldn't hear back from ABG.
    After the phone and face to face interview, I was welcomed into the CLE team. This experience so far, has been awesome. I work with a great group of people who encourage and support each other when they need it. I'm really glad I chose to spend my summer with ABG.

    Cons

    I haven't experience anything to be considered a con but I do hear a lot of compliants about the HR team from many different people in the building.

    Pros

    The high employee retention rate and opportunity for growth within the company was what initially peaked my interest. It was apparent that Avis Budget Group values and supports the advancement of their employees. As for the culture, I experienced it first hand during my initial visit to headquarters; everyone greeted me with a smile and appeared genuinely happy to be there. That spoke volumes to me!

    Cons

    I have not experienced any challenges up to this point.

    Pros

    I enjoy the work. The team with which I work is open and ready to lend a hand or to help learn the processes. When mistakes are made, they first let the person know that he isn't the first one to have erred, and then they give good advice on what to do the next time. Most of all, I like the fast-pace work and working with people with whom I have much in common.

    Cons

    Could have better pay scale
