    Great Family/Work life

    Pricing Analyst Level II (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsManagers are Fair and the benefits are decentt. The work/home life is great. They really value family and family time. They have flex hours in the summer to get home to the family. They have floating holidays and let you leave early the day before a holiday.

    ConsTraining was almost non existent. The salary is on the lower end compared to other companies. They lack support for growth in certain areas. We have the ability to work from home, however they do not allow it unless it benefits them (like working after hours or on weekends)

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement generally has good communication with employees, certain areas in the company do not promote growth within the company. The company in certain departments has a high turnover rate.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unexpected Surprise

    CLE (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsI found out about Avis Budget Group through a friend. He had interned at ABG in the summer during his college career. He had nothing but great things to say about the company. He reccomended that I'd be a good fit in the CLE department based on my past jobs. I applied thinking that I wouldn't hear back from ABG.
    After the phone and face to face interview, I was welcomed into the CLE team. This experience so far, has been awesome. I work with a great group of people who encourage and support each other when they need it. I'm really glad I chose to spend my summer with ABG.

    ConsI haven't experience anything to be considered a con but I do hear a lot of compliants about the HR team from many different people in the building.

    Company is ever-changing, which is a good thing, but has been challenged to see things through before acting.

    Corporate Sales (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsI enjoyed the freedom to manage my workday the way I saw fit. As long as you are performing, they give you a longer leash typically.

    ConsFollow through on strategy and not enough sales training courses. More recognition and positive reinforcement needed. Budget truck rental is poorly run and deserves better as the cash cow of this organization. Overaged fleet with poor customer service.

    Advice to Senior Management"Live in the moment" more and really celebrate the victories. Don't just ring a bell.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
