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

Pros

Experienced, strong leaders
Vision for the future
Truly believes in partnership with customers, not just supplier/purchaser relationships
Encourages leaders to recognize and develop talent

Cons

There aren't many cons for me. I've experienced dramatic swings in the economic situation, and those fluctuations have taken us from one extreme to another, with risks at both ends. A couple years ago, we had hiring freezes, layoffs, consolidations, etc and now we're growing fast that it's difficult to maintain a high level of service without the infrastructure supporting current activities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See all projects through to completion before piling on more. Allow time for each to be absorbed and adopted fully before building the next step. Not saying only do one thing at a time, but make sure each initiative is fully in place before trying to move on to the next.
