I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time

Pros

Actually offer decent benefits, pay raises and bonuses, unlike a lot of other similar companies. Decent work environment, friendly management . I worked at a small location with a friendly environment. Not very busy during certain times of the year so had lots of down time on the off travel seasons, which was nice as I was a college student and used that time to do homework. (Although I got away with this at my location, I doubt you could everywhere)

Cons

You have to deal with the corporate culture, although it wasn't as bad as other places. In addition, you are required to work nights, weekends and holidays. Sometimes distribution was bad and they wouldn't have enough cars to fit their reservations, resulting in angry customers. Also, they would never staff us properly which resulted in me having to do 3-4x the normal workload.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for and the people there were very nice, really enjoyed my time there I must say. Would definitely consider going back if I got the offer.

    Cons

    Not really much negative to mention. Long hours some days but that's to to be expected with any company. Had to commute quite far but that's not their fault.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good career opportunities for employees willing to relocate often

    Cons

    Senior management preaches empowerment and practices micro-management
    Initiatives being implemented on the fly at great cost and uncertain return on the investment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement and develop a culture of trust
    Motivate and inspire and let go the obsolete "carrot and stick" approach
    Focus on the long term vision rather than making plan for the next quarter
    Focus more on the employees and less on the shareholders. If employees are happy, customers will be happy, shareholders will be happy.
