    Pros

    The work place is like my extended family and the career advancement opportunities are phenomenal in the sales organization. I started working for Avis Budget Group while in college and I want to retire at Avis Budget Group.

    Cons

    Rental car is an industry that only has three true players and with competitor efforts to make rental car more of a commodity you have a very challenging sale. That being said you will not find a more supportive and collaborative work environment where you have access to all the tools to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep challenging the status quo and keep leading the industry in technological and company culture advancements.

    Pros

    Avis Budget Group is a excellent company to work for. I choose to work for Avis for a couple of reasons. First I needed a job that would work with my school schedule, second I love to drive so this job was what I needed. Avis also gives me the opportunity to show my skills in networking and leadership.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working for Avis Budget Group is that part-time employes don't receive benefits like other employes.

    Pros

    A Fortune 100 company that is always reaching new heights! Senior management (especially at this location) is superb. Variety of vehicles to drive home everyday with free gas. Empowerment to own your work experience and tools to achieve future goals.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not bad, but seniority is required for a M-F schedule. It is an airport after all, so this should be expected. As with most large companies the "red tape" (primarily with HR issues) can hinder necessary progress and prolong challenges to overcome.
