    I have been working at Hertz full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is 24 hour gym access

    Cons

    High insurance deductibles, low pay, limited, unorganized training, low office morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit the office frequently, and randomly. Just a lot of older people who complain about everything.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good team, good first level managers, interesting projects. Easy job, good benefits, good pay - as long as you negotiate for it.

    Cons

    Incompetent project management; keep missing deadlines; still stuck in waterfall; complete chaos with respect to planning, estimating, requirements.

    Senior management does not have an open door policy.

    Unhappy teams kept silent.

    Management seeks fault in employees rather than take accountability and ownership.

    Forced overtime and weekends to compensate for project management's failures.

    Going above and beyond goes unappreciated.

    Senior management will flex its "legally we can tell you when, where, and how to work" muscle, and literally put 20 people in a room with no windows that is meant for 10 people to work when they feel projects are not being delivered on time.

    No retrospectives and thus keep repeating the same mistakes.

    Overcrowded cubicles due to insufficient space.

    No strategic thinking, all is tackled brute-force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review project management competency and encourage them to adapt to the type of projects they manage (e.g. don't manage a tech team as a business team). Give them outside training.

    Encourage management to have an open door policy and listen to their employees' concern without fear of reprisal, and actually address the issues.

    Move your office to NYC if you want to recruit tech talent and encourage your upper management to re-align to be more competitive and tech-aware - since your management revokes negotiated terms under the premise that NJ is an at-will state.

    Retrain your management to bring them up to speed, and to be more employee sensitive with respect to burn-out rate (a concept they have no familiarity with).

    Stress the importance to deliver value to business trumps friendships, so concerns, ideas, and complaints should be addresses seriously in an unbiased way - even if it steps on the toes of old inter-company friendships.
