    Pros

    Great discount on rental rates, flexible hours, easy service to sell

    Cons

    Negative and hard to approach marketing team, employees seem to abide by fear, everyone employee seems to be looking for another job (including management)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to feedback, transparency goes a long way between employees, product is very easy to sell because its a great idea! Try to encourage your employees to grow within the company. Zipcar is a fun brand- I don't understand how this office seems to be so negative and lacking growth for employees

    Pros

    The company is growing and there are a lot of opportunities to be promoted within.
    There is a family atmosphere. Coworkers genuinely care about each other.
    We work hard and we play hard. The company is made up of a great group of professionals that take pride in their work, and it is a fun group of people. There are several company outings and get togethers through out the year.

    Cons

    In the past, the pay has been criticized for being below industry standard. Since the company has been acquired by Avis Budget Group, we have seen improvements that have made salaries more competitive in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the forward momentum
