    Pros

    You gain a lot of corporate experience working for Hertz.
    It can also be a fun place to work.
    There's always a challenge that needs resolution.

    Cons

    Not too sure the company as a whole has a clear path on its future.
    Management doesn't always help with career growth.

    Advice to Management

    More direction needs to be given within different departments. Allow employees to move around the company and not get stuck within certain departments. If you do your job well, it can help and hurt you as management doesn't want to lose you and build a new team.

    Pros

    I really enjoy working here. I started as a temp and then was later hired to a full time employee. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Enjoy the complex and you meet someone new everyday.

    Cons

    When I started there was no training and basically had to figure things out myself, which was a waste of time. Need better training for new hires in their field. Also, the company is moving from Park Ridge to Southwest Florida so if you want to move to warmer weather this would be an excellent opportunity to apply for open positions.

    Pros

    This was a really great team to work with. Strong support from management. Opinions and insights are valued by management from day 1. Potential to work on some really interesting operational projects.

    Cons

    It is hard to change some process and strategies which need improvement due to wider office politics and inertia. With Dollar/Thrifty integration and HQ move to Naples company culture may change.

    Pros

    Very supportive and engaging leadership, Really gives the employee their chance to showcase any and all talents. Very open and supportive team members as well.

    Cons

    Wish there was a little more variety in the ad hoc work. Senior management focus's too much on the yearly goals set and hitting those targets rather than what is best for the business in the long-term.

    Pros

    Very dynamic and energetic organization. Money upside is so big for top management that the drive for financial success is incredible, even if it causes major burnout for the working class.

    Cons

    Hertz top management is causing major disruptions for families in New Jersey headquarter by moving to Florida. Reason: avoid taxes on their stock option....
