Advice to Management

    I have been working at McGrath RentCorp as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture is one of transparency and ethics. The management team is strong, seasoned and long tenured--no revolving door in management. Not being acquired, no layoffs.

    Cons

    None that I can think of--if you don't want to work hard then this is not the culture for you. But if you do, you are rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the standards of excellence that we have all grown to admire and honor.
