    I have been working at Hertz full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture in the Revenue Management Department. Extensive training, and great support in current position from management. Management pushes for your promotion from day 1, and lots of opportunity to express creativity. Learning opportunities are abundant.

    Cons

    Many systems to familiarize yourself with. Bonus structure not clear. Payscale range is too wide for each level. Not necessarily 24/7, but time needed for adequate analysis is more than 40 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management salaries are not particularly competitive. Often very stressful. High pressure for accounts who are uninterested. Overbooking of online reservations for cars sets staff up for customer service failure. High pressure to maintain very strict utilization ratios.
