    Pros

    Great brand, great people and moving towards great company, once again.

    Cons

    Lacks discipline in training and development of corporate employees. You really have to fight for a promotion. Organization is flat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With new CEO named it is a new beginning for Hertz. Let's see what changes he brings, especially to the culture of this organization.

    Pros

    Good training, good management support. Lots of good enthusiastic upper management. Excellent processes and sales structure. Good tiered commissions for entry positions.

    Cons

    Management salaries are not particularly competitive. Often very stressful. High pressure for accounts who are uninterested. Overbooking of online reservations for cars sets staff up for customer service failure. High pressure to maintain very strict utilization ratios.

    I have been working at Hertz full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Diverse workplace, offering a multitude of different tasks and experiences.
    Ability to gain tremendous amount of workplace experience including fields of critical thinking, sales, customer interaction, etc.
    Offers good and steady pay.
    Multiple opportunities for growth and promotion.
    Consistent company growth with correlating changes that keep the company fresh and ahead of competitors.

    Cons

    Very busy and difficult at times, especially during holiday seasons.
    Sometimes limited number of resources, making employees work extra hard to ensure excellent customer service.
    At times there is a disconnect between flow of daily operations and corporate offices, making it difficult to complete certain tasks and obtain certain necessities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Items or fields such as aging fleet, changing compensation, and lack of labor power can cause tremendous burden to employees and other staff. These are areas of opportunity that if corrected at a steady but appropriate pace, will alleviate multiple problems in operations. However the company is very good at acknowledging certain problems and issues and has always showed a great deal of attention and effort to strive toward appropriate changes. As a whole, the company is ever growing, allowing great opportunities for all employees to grow with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your staff without them it's more headaches then taking the few moments to help out those who reach out it may be a few long nights but those long nights help prevent long months of headaches. Get it done now instead of holding it over.

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly work environment. (usually), potential of advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Hard to reach incintives, very stressful work days, job achievements seam more easily attainable and more appealing than they actually are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find more professional ways to express the importance of making certain expectations and when mistakes are made. Positivity is much more understandable and produces more productive reponses from your employees.
