    I worked at Dollar Thrifty Automotive full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I spent 20 years at Dollar Thrifty and was there when things were really rocky, but with the right management teams in please to company rose from the brink of death to a very strong cash flow and A plus credit ratings. Unfortunately they were purchased by Hertz and 2012 which has lead to it's demise. Thousands of jobs were lost or outsourced as a result and after Hertz decided to go a different direction with the company many vendor contracts were not renewed with resulted in layoffs.

    Cons

    Company was purchased by Hertz who lived up to none of the promises it made. Dollar Thrifty was a profitable company and rather than adhere to the standards that made Dollar Thrifty profitable and maintain the management and employees that made them success, Hertz moved at warp speed to get rid of all of them and it's been a downhill spiral since then.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and invest in the people that turned the company around and made it a success. Many rode off into the sunset with golden parachutes.
