Pros

It was great having a company car, but working 12 hour days, so then by the weekend, I was too tired to use it to go anywhere. Not a bad strategy

Cons

Honesty and integrity are not valued as much as bottom line and making it look good.

Advice to Management

Teach your managers to manage. Use the carrot, not the whip. Use your heads, you can't punish people to get better. Progressive discipline should be combined with retraining and motivation.

    Pros

    My team and the people. Some of the people I met are life-long friends. Working at Hertz was a great stepping stone for me in my career (until Frisorra took over).

    Cons

    When Frisorra took over as CEO the entire work experience changed. I worked at the data center in OKC for all most 10 years and the last year and a half drove me to find another job. I was in constant fear of "layoffs" and survived the first one. Luckily I was underpaid and did my job so I was safe. Its a same to see a place like the datacenter go from 600+ employees to 175-200.

    Frisorra outsourced lots of iT to India. Thanks for sending 300-400 OKC jobs overseas. What a bonehead.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management at Park Ridge NJ: get your head checked.
