I worked at Rentalcars.com full-time for less than a year
Pros – pay is reasonably good, as is the location in the city centre of manchester and the new office building is very impressive.
Cons – another web based company who have made so many failed attempts in the last 3 years at a mobile presence it's embarrassing. the quality of the engineering is pitiful, with the obsession on quick fixes and hacks to increase 'conversion' as opposed to anything scalable or robust. from the top down, the bullying, call-centre culture the business was borne out of still permeates.
if you are a software engineer wants to be challenged, rentalcars is not for you. if you want to argue the toss about a/b testing on native apps, or backend api design with inept managements then fill your boots.
as an aside to this, the hours are unusually long (40/week) and there is absolutely nothing in terms of personal development or staff perks. you even have to provide your own coffee - archaic...
Advice to Senior Management – dump the senior management who contribute nothing other than drawing large salaries and get a decent technical strategist in there.
