    I have been working at Hertz

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth, training, and making a meaningful career with purpose

    Team aptmosphere with management that cares about the business as well as their employee's satisfaction

    Leadership is developing a team corporate culture that is steps above the wall street mentality.

    Cons

    With the new corporate headquarters in construction not everyone can work in the same location. The separation makes team communication more difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to get all employees in face to face meetings with their direct customers. Encourage more travel for corporate employees to meet with their colleagues and operations.

    Pros

    The team members are awesome and more than willing to assist in your training. Hertz is a perfect place to work if you enjoy meeting people from walks of life and enjoy knowing that you are contributing to the success your customers achieve personally as well as professionally.

    Cons

    On occasion the branch office is understaffed and lunch breaks must be quick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to instill a greater sense of ownership in the job you need to offer a greater type of tiered commission structure.

    Pros

    The people are extremely passionate about the brand. It is a fast paced environment and always in a state of change. No day is ever the same.

    Cons

    The company is constantly in change mode and it's difficult to keep pace with the changes. At times, it doesn't appear as if the strategic direction of the organization is clear, however, under new leadership this might change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have an opportunity to do great things with this amazing brand. Empower your people to help take it to the next level.

    Hertz is in a growth mode with many changes happening at the moment. It makes work challenging and very busy.

    Pros

    Independent thinking and speaking candidly is encouraged.
    An exceptional level of work-life balance is provided.
    Talent is noticed and rewarded.
    Pension plans are still being offered as well as 401ks, life insurance, and the whole nine yards.
    A company car is offered at management level.
    A global company means being able to take your job with you if you move.

    Overall Hertz is an exciting and extremely rewarding career. They offer a multitude of opportunities for growth and development in multiple fields from Human Resources to Internal Audits to Operations Management. They provide all the training you could ask for, and more including Sigma Six certifications; and no two days are ever the same. The management here is always willing to hear concerns, comments, and solutions or simply speak about how work life ties into home life. The opportunities here and the openness of employees at all levels here never cease to amaze me.

    Cons

    I have heard it been said that this job can be stressful, which is the case with all jobs. I believe and have been able to prove however that with proper time management skills, leadership capabilities, and the ability to delegate (or follow instructions) much of that stress can be avoided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work; we truly appreciate what you do for us, and the care you show to your work force.
