Pros

You learn a lot from working long hours. The skills you gain from this looks great on your resume and will get you recognized by future employers.

Cons

They do not pay you for how hard you have to work and how stressful the job is. Not much feedback from upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please pay the management trainees more. We work very hard but never recognized. Maybe you all should watch Undercover Boss and learn a thing or two.

    Pros

    1. The CEO is ruthless on costs, which saved the Company through the recession.
    2. Great character of people work here; meetings at times feel like your working with friends, even at the most senior level. There is a collective passion to do what's best for the Company among middle and upper management.

    Cons

    1. The Company is based within a few miles of some of the more progressive companies to work for in this area and is still severely lacking in what have become the most basic employee-based programs/policies (e.g. telecommuting).
    2. In the portfolio of skill-sets for a CEO, he falls way short in the 'cares for employees' category, lambasting HQ-based staff for not coming in during a 2 ft. snow storm when every other Fortune 500 company in a 20 mile radius was closed (or leveraging their formal telecommuting policy to maintain some level of productivity).
    3. Reliance on corporate travel and construction makes Hertz vulnerable and holds the company back on share value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. We need to move past the feeling that there are an isolated few people at Hertz that don't pull their weight and institute policies that the majority of hard working/high-performing people deserve and can take advantage of.
    2. Allow HR to screen all communications sent by the CEO and have veto authority.
    3. Hire an IT consulting firm for a minimum 5 year contract.

    Good for experience. Bad long term
