Cons

-the pay is not competitive even though it states it on our website
-no room for growth unless you want to move to a different city

Advice to Management

Our CEO makes $400,000 a year and just received a $34,00 raise with potential for a full bonus. They make us feel that they have no money to give us when we're doing a good job. We receive $.60 an hour raise per hour, which amounts to basically nothing.

    Pros

    It sounds cool, so people assume it's awesome.
    The product is innovative, so people assume the company is.
    Green is a pretty color.

    Cons

    They are afraid to try anything new. Everything must be done "the way it's always been done" even if that way is bad, outdated and lame.
    They do not want to revolutionize anything and are terrified of change.
    There is little to no room for advancement, which is why everyone leaves after 3 years at most.
    Upper level management doesn't care about customers or employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make your internal values and corporate culture match how awesome the idea of car sharing is. Don't play it safe all the time. And treat people with respect!

    Pros

    Flexcar teams were fun, high-energy, and mission-driven. People wore many hats and improvised resourcefully to solve problems and get things done. Internal promotions grew people professionally and were good for morale.

    Cons

    Flexcar experienced some churn in ownership and management, and somewhat lacked process discipline (probably inevitable when growing so rapidly), but the strong prevailing can-do attitude counteracted the potential chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Flexcar was acquired by Zipcar and integrated under the Zipcar brand and management team. The ideal company would leverage the high spirit of Flexcar along with with the lean process discipline of Zipcar.
