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

Pros

There is a lot of growth potential - the company is growing and taking advantage of the improving economy. There are lots of opportunities for sales commissions and bonuses, as well as contests at many different levels.

Cons

Be prepared to work - yes, there are lots of hours. Car rental is a 24/7 business, especially at airports. Customers have high expectations and it takes work to keep them happy.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefit package/costs. Apparent stability in the company's financial status.

    Cons

    Lack of true path for advancement for entire company across divisional lines. Divisional leadership (director level) too autocratic, not cohesive. Lack of fair and un-biased job posting and hiring practices across divisional lines.

    Lack of timely communication of goals from senior management to sales staff for bonus pay levels. (Who announces yearly goals after the year has begun?)

    Continual moving target for sales staff who are trying to achieve bonus pay levels. (Again, changes are communicated after year begins, sales staff have to "catch up" - or miss goals! )

    Advice to Management

    #1) Establish long-term expectations for sales staff. Year to year goals are very short sighted.

    #2) Recommend senior management/human resources establish a standard path for advancing that is accessible to all levels of personnel in the company. Many times job postings are not visible - unless you know someone. Many times job postings are already filled - even though the "posting and interviewing process" proceeds or occurs weeks after a posting expires. Many positions are pre-determined (even though the interviewing process proceeds). Promotions occur many times with candidates who move across the country for a new position - when a very qualified candidate resides in the location that has the opening! Where is the corporate oversight for moving expenses/reasonableness? Why would a very qualified candidate already residing in a city with an opening be passed over? Why would management want to pay moving expenses when not necessary?

    Another FISCAL Question:
    How long is the Rolling Pride going to last and what is it costing? Is that really a prudent use of resources and a wise expense? Is it really building morale when the "team" really is not on the bus?

    There are too many instances of who you know - not what you know or how well you perform in your position - that result in promotions and other perks....
