    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....

    Pros

    You get 40% discount on rentals.

    Cons

    Poor management
    Slow to get any kind of authorization
    Managers just point fingers and say do it with no instruction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to properly train. Its understandable that the company is going through a big change but new employees shouldnt be just dumped into a position expecting how to do things.

    Pros

    I wish I could think of one.

    Cons

    The employees are not appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I previously worked for a large international corporation that valued their employees and I can tell you that all of the employees were extremely grateful for that. They worked as hard as they could for the company. In the case of Hertz there seems to be almost 0 consideration for the welfare of the employees. Most especially during State of Emergencies when senior management tells the employees that they will only close if they receive a phone call telling them to shut their doors. Ridiculous when you have a personal driver and don't care about the folks who don't. The folks who risk their lives and their vehicles to get to work. It sure makes for VERY bad morale when you are forced to use your vacation time for a blizzard OR an unprecidented hurricane! Just utterly ridiculous. Give to your employees in meaningful ways and they will work their tails off for you. It's human nature.

    Pros

    Their benefits are ok with your choice of company vehicles and stock purchase discounts. They require many hours of training annually.

    Cons

    Every year expenses go on lock down in the 4th quarter and layoffs loom regardless of YOY improvements. There is absolutely no work life balance at this company. The expectation is that you work through holidays and vacations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance expectations through out the year and temper layoffs. Your bonuses are big enough already without laying off worker bees.
