Does Avis Budget Group offer relocation assistance?

Pros

The benefit package is good.

Cons

Most locations are short of staff so current workers work a lot of long hours and they are not compensated for their efforts. Employees are not given breaks on the second shift and on weekends. They cannot leave the station.

Advice to Management

Implement annual reviews, raises, and cost of living increases to employees at all locations.

The benefit package is good.

Does Avis Budget Group have a pension plan?

Pros

Fantastic, friendly people to work with. Quite a young, diverse team full of very smart people. I learned a lot. Very open/horizontal culture. You can speak quite freely to line managers and department head. Nobody looking over your shoulder. Big focus on personal development, so a great place to start your career. Competitive pay with regular pay reviews. Bonuses distributed from bottom up when company wasn't as profitable, which I really respected. Quite generous pension package and other benefits.

Cons

Can take a while to move up the hierarchy which causes retention problems. American-style bonus structure makes different departments fight each other over objectives - weekly battles over same issues a common occurrence. Has long needed an IT overhaul - lots of core processes running on VBA. 3 month notice period.

Advice to Management

For the most part, keep doing what you're doing. I genuinely feel lucky to have worked at Avis because of the culture you created. No easy fix for retention problem, but 3 month notice period means people lose interest after handing in notice and creates an awkward environment, so should be reduced to 6 weeks or so. The IT systems need an overhaul. As analysts it shouldn't really be our job to fix / patch things together while waiting for an IT ticket (though you do learn a lot doing this). IT department probably needs investment. Battles between departments are due to the bonus structure at their core. When main KPIs are inversely related, and most departments are evaluated on one KPI, this leads to poor decision making across the business. Too much energy spent on negotiating internally instead of solving business problems.

Quite generous pension package and other benefits.
