    I worked at United Rentals full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Exposed to all aspects of the business cycle.

    Cons

    There was poor management leadership and many of the employees didn't get along. The manager seemed to encourage the division amongst the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have liked to see more communication amongst the staff members.

    I have been working at United Rentals full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salaries are good overall. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Older employees tend to be first to go during a head count issue, business downturn, etc. Company is very youth minded, focusing on the future of the company. When you cross into your 50's, watch out. You no longer represent the future for the company, and you are at a greater risk to be moved out as soon as a reason can be found other than discrimination. Older applicants with years of experience always lose out to younger college grads with no experience in the business. Very costly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A company needs youth for the future, but, it also needs the wisdom and experience of others. Allowing older employees to train the young is more economical than pushing the young through a seminar, and then out to stumble around as they learn.
