Pros

Financially rewarding, self-directed, and relatively easy and straightforward, the work can be satisfying on its own. Choice is a very sales-centric organization, which makes most of its sales force quite happy. There are also some great people working at Choice.

Cons

There is an extreme lack of corporate culture, at least as observed from a field-based position. Also, the frequent reorganizations were a bit disruptive at times, and there were constantly rumors regarding internal politics and personnel changes. But the biggest issue, perhaps as a result of those previous ones, is a lack of emphasis on team collaboration amongst the sales staff and between departments that rely regularly on each other for information and assistance. And finally, professional development opportunities are not readily available in some departments, such as sales and property support.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better utilize regional teams to better accomplish the company's goals. The independence of sales people, while freeing and gratifying in certain ways, often inhibited a good team-based strategy to get good deals done. This is especially necessary in situations where so many people overlap in territories and compete for very limited opportunities.

    Pros

    Interesting business model which allows you to work in several different fields. They recruit from within and try to create a culture of inclusion and diversity.

    Cons

    The company is always changing directions. Senior management is shifted around and projects with many hours already invested are abandoned. Many senior manager have left leaving one to feel the company is very instable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to talk to your associates. They may have a really great idea or a project they have been working on which would greatly benefit the company.
