Pros

You can set the hours you want to work and can be off work when you need to with no questions asked. It is a pleasant work place with mostly retired people.

Cons

some supervisors flavor the black drivers for special jobs over employees who have seniorty . Mostly because it keeps down trouble. The supervisor is black and I feel he is under pressure to show favor to his peers. Older white shuttlers have asked for trips and have been told there arn't any right now and turn around a get black employees without seniority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be fair to all employees. If you say seniority is important for special jobs then do it and don't bend to pressure for special people just because they are black or white. This is fair and everyone is happy.

    Pros

    Avis is a long established company with many great employees who believe in the brand and servicing their customers. Perhaps one of the best known brand names in the world, it immediately commands respect when dealing with customers and clients.

    Despite a lack of leadership (not management, the company has many effective managers of costs), a great many of the employees work toward a common goal of excellence.

    Cons

    Because of a short sighted focus on increasing immediate shareholder value, rather than longer term picture of customer satisfaction to drive future revenue growth, customer service gets short changed. Too often, good customer focused intiatives never get a chance because of the cost. As a result, competitors continue to increase market share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on customer satisfaction in addition to what today's share price is. Cost cutting will only get you so far toward profitability. You can cut too much, so that your ability to serve your customers is compromised and they go to your competitors.

    Pros

    great potential and market share. Some very good, talented and hard working people . Let down by culture and no understanding of people

    Cons

    Real culture of fear, driven from the top and felt by senior managers . Managers wont take risk or make key decisions as fear no 2nd chance given. The most senior manager micro manages . Senior managers not trusted. So many processes are way off world class and little / no understanding of the value that an engaged workforce can bring to the bottom line. Many people stressed and work/life balance bad. Leadership behaviours do not match actions. Talent leave and no one really wants to understand why. It says something about a company when most of the HR have left / will leave / want to leave .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider what impact your behaviour is having across the business. Face the fear culture that's been created and do something about it. Look properly and hold a mirror up to yourself when analysing the engagement surveys - they really are telling you something.
