    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

    Good benefits. Supportive co-workers. Managers help up to a point, it's up to you to survive.

    Cons

    Horrible management, unrealistic expectations and poor training lead to difficulty in moving up unless you really get a grasp on the material at the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better training program to prepare employees for job expectations.

    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

    Great benefits, accrued personal days, vacation time, and sick time. You get paid commission based on percentage of penetration and you can make great commission checks each month.

    Cons

    No control over your product for sales, fleet managers routinely run a very tight fleet which constrains your ability to make you sales goals. Sales can be great depending on your customer base and location but if they don't want to buy your extras, you're screwed. The reservation call center is overseas and you clearly get the feeling that they are paid based on booking reservations, they miscommunicate the type of vehicle, the costs of additional services, rental policies, and at the end of the day the counter sales agent is left to deal with it all

    Advice to Management

    Decide what direction, as a company, we are going towards. We can't be service based and get our sales as well. Inform the reservations call center of policies and correct verbiage to use do they are not guaranteeing a product we can't deliver.

    Appreciate your employees. It would help if everyone would work as a team.
