Good Intentions, Bad Execution

Sales Role (Current Employee)

I have been working at McGrath RentCorp full-time for more than 5 years

Pros* Good Base Pay
* Small Company Atmosphere
* Received extra help when needed in key situation
* Interesting Work/Industry
* Decent Benefits ( Explain More In Cons)
* Generally, good co-workers who care
* Room for advancement within company as a whole

Cons* Terrible Bonus Plan - So Confusing You Just Sell and Pray You Make Good Money
* Leaders who have little idea of day to day operations yet set guidelines for daily operation
* Too many steps in an already complicated process
* No committment to excellence, too many roadblocks and excuses.
* Extremely political environment
* Constant closed door meetings and one on ones
* CRAZY high turnover rate
* Expected to do 950 things a day and more with 0 increase in pay
* Terrible/Non Existent Training
* INTENSE Micro Managing from all managers, not just your own
* Expensive Insurance which has gradually gone up since working here

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to be successful and foster long term employee's - then become a company of yes rather than no. Force all employees to commit to excellence and keep high standards across ALL departments. Make it easier for sales people to understand how to get paid and reward hard work/excellence/high revenue.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Overall it was OK. The people I had the pleasure to work with were great!

Houston, TX

I worked at McGrath RentCorp full-time for more than a year


Pros: I don't think its possible to get 25 days paid time off in many places. That was great and… Cons: Management did not do the best job of rotating staff off of projects that did not provide much opportunities for professional development. The same story… Advice to Senior Management: Attempt to work with your employees and rotate them off jobs… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
