    no room to grow. limited hiring from within, not capable of real change, management is not competent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    limited structure, day to day limited plan , social atmosphere is weak, rude and classless in some managerial techniques.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I did actually work with at least 2 to 3 other associates.

    Cons

    Management was very backstabbing constantly taking vacations couldn't ever be found or bothered and if you told on other associates that were talking about completely inappropriate things(sexual positions, etc) in front of children at the counter you lost your job, just supposed to deal with people that had no customer service sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because a manager has been there for a while doesn't mean they should stay at the same place, maybe they need to be moved around so as to not hide all the bad and complacent things that are happening or should I say not happening at AVIS. I loved my job as I was able to train and help individuals and families but management was the worst.

    Pros

    great facilities, great employees, benefits are good.

    Cons

    No Communication from management, Underhanded and mean spirited managers, gives false information to employees to keep them quiet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a moment and reevaluate your middle managers and above. Good people are leaving the organization to get out from under upper managers who are threatened by self starting individuals who show any sign of competence and desire to grow with the company. They only want people who will follow, not people who will lead.
