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

Pros

The safety culture is second to none.
The diversity in the workplace is awesome, and the senior management support in this area is strong.
Operations are performing very well with much more room for continued profitable growth.

Cons

Work like balance can be tough to manage as we all work very hard, but it is fulfilling work.
The industry is cyclical, while things are great now there will eventually be lean days again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work, and don't forget to pat people on the back some more. Celebrate your victories!

    I worked at United Rentals full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I loved working at URI because of the company benefits, values and mission. I knew that Mike and Matt would take this company to the top, which they did. My skills were honed at this company. I had a great manager who taught me so much. Working at URI were the happiest and proudest days of my life.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement for women at our location. I honestly thought URI genuinely cared about long time employees but I believe the old adage "out of sight, out of mind" applies now that the company has grown so large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire back employees who were laid off during the economic downturn. Women need more opportunities for advancement.
