    I have been working at United Rentals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    United offers a singular opportunity for someone who doesn't need their hand held to learn a lot about business. They are well managed from a strategic level. As with most firms that are not in the top "50 greatest places to work", you will witness the good, the bad, and the ugly. More good than bad and most of us are ugly. Take the plunge. Great company to learn the ropes!

    Cons

    Each region and district are ran independant. They have their own goals and strategies. Do your research and make sure you understand the type of managers you will be working for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cons

    Besides getting laid off, not too bad. Upper management sometimes tried to micro manage too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micro management.
