    I have been working at Hertz

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth, training, and making a meaningful career with purpose

    Team aptmosphere with management that cares about the business as well as their employee's satisfaction

    Leadership is developing a team corporate culture that is steps above the wall street mentality.

    Cons

    With the new corporate headquarters in construction not everyone can work in the same location. The separation makes team communication more difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to get all employees in face to face meetings with their direct customers. Encourage more travel for corporate employees to meet with their colleagues and operations.

    Pros

    The team members are awesome and more than willing to assist in your training. Hertz is a perfect place to work if you enjoy meeting people from walks of life and enjoy knowing that you are contributing to the success your customers achieve personally as well as professionally.

    Cons

    On occasion the branch office is understaffed and lunch breaks must be quick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to instill a greater sense of ownership in the job you need to offer a greater type of tiered commission structure.
