    I have been working at Hertz full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good discounts on used and new cars.

    Health benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Be prepared to be on call 24/7. Work/life balance is extremely poor. Senior management is disconnected from the rest of the company and will do anything to max out their bonuses. This includes cutting out employee perks and training. Unrealistic targets are set, which creates a lot of finger pointing and dog eat dog environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting out employee perks and benefits for your own personal gain. Also, stop encouraging employees to leave positive feedback on this website to get the company off the "Top 5 worst companies to work for". That should come through your actions, not your manipulation.
