I worked at Penske full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Some staff are very clever and very dedicated.
- No matter how dire the performance, due to the fact that it's a JV it'll likely never close.

Cons

- Absolutely no executive strategy in EMEA
- Orders come down from the top (US corporate HQ) with no dissent tolerated.
- No room for lateral thinking
- Staff are generally viewed as executors and not thinkers, even at senior managerial / directorial level, never mind those lower.
- Reliance on outsourcing is a catastrophic mistake.
- The HR department does... well... what do they do? Nothing.
- Dedication and knowledge will count for nothing when it comes time for the redundancies to be handed out; it's more about who you know, and how comprehensively you have brown-nosed them.
- Watch your back - nobody will watch it for you.
- HQ in EMEA is in a completely idiotic location in a very small town in the very south of the Netherlands - not, as you would expect, in the logistics capital of Europe, Rotterdam.
