    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great benefits and there is opportunity for growth with the company

    Cons

    operations managers are the most worked and underappreciated. you are required to work 10 hour shifts, your off days are always changing and the Ops bonus structure is terrible compared to the bonuses of upper management and hourly. The position and exposure is great for building a resume. You have so much responsibilities you'll be ready for anything

    Advice to Management

    have more consideration for your middle management team. better scheduling, fair bonus programs and more appreciation.

    Some Great people work for this company. 35 hour work week. Jeans on Fridays.

    Leadership is stale. Company needs younger talent to catch up with the ever-changing need of travelers.

    Advice to Management

    Retain some employees and change up some of the leadership team. Actually try and make Avis a great place to work to create some brand loyalty and free advertising.

    Pros

    Company car and free gas

    Cons

    To advance you must; 1. Have everyone above you absolutely adore you personally. (Not professionally) 2. Do not show anybody below you any sense of admiration for anything. 3. Do not, I repeat, do not, by any means dare to think out side the box and voice your ideas. To upper management this is a bad thing. You must conform to the "Avis Budget way" 4. Never expect any recognition for any accomplishment you or your team achieve. You must only promote yourself and hope that by doing so you make somebody like you.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box!

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - family-like environment

    Cons

    - not likely to appreciate/value leaders who embrace change
    - unprofessional business environment when it comes to dealing with disciplinary issues
    - lacking in continuing education; especially with respect to management

    Advice to Management

    With regards to the corporate aspect of the company, there are some people in management that have a static mentality as the company and rental car field changes around them. If the company truly values foward thinking, such employees should be pushed to change their thinking or perhaps pushed out to make room for those who embrace and face change head-on.
