I have been working at Zipcar full-time for less than a year

Pros

Teams are very well organized
Everyone is very competent and cooperative
Fun, welcoming, collegial working environment
There is a cultural openness to learning new skills and using them

Cons

No technical leadership to speak of
Salaries are on the low end for the industry/region
Avis (the parent company) HR department is extremely slow/unresponsive
Management structure makes it difficult to advance your career

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire extremely qualified technologists into senior leadership positions, find a way to get out from under Avis bureaucracy.

    I have been working at Zipcar full-time for more than a year

    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
