    Pros

    Work-life balance is good. Managers understand and don't give flack when you need the time off, even on short notice. Benefits package is about average for the area.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are time constraints, but they can be planned around.

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility in some departments was awesome. Laid back atmosphere and business attire. Good community responsibility. Better pay than majority of the industry in some departments. No pay raises for 3 years until Hertz acquired them--then a whopping 3%.

    Cons

    Acquired by Hertz so small company atmosphere is gone. Benefits are too expensive! Stingy with their paid time off. No training or feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Provide feedback to your employees about the jobs they perform.

    Pros

    Good, knowledgeable people to work with; most are trying to be enterprised focused for the improvement of the entire company.

    Cons

    Some pockets of strife between IT and the business remained after Dollar and Thrifty joined to be ONE company; also I had several managers in a relatively short time, which made for some ambiguity associated with methodology.

    Advice to Management

    Always be straight with employees and follow through on mandates with upper management of the domains.
