I have been working at Zipcar full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Senior management not afraid to challenge the status quo
- Great freedom to execute the plans you develop
- Great culture, fun company, it's a blend of marketing, operations, retail and auto worlds
- Competitive pay, bonus potential is there, but challenging to achieve
- People really believe in what they do - not a lot of people that just "show up"
- Close-knit, but very open and eager to bring in new talent
- If you can justify the (fill in the blank item/task/project), you can make it happen!

Cons

- Marketing finally catching up with the times; recent leadership changes should address this
- No 401k match (although there is a 401k plan)
- Need to beef up HR department - it's a work in progress
- Mobile platform needs to become the best again - no more excuses

Advice to Management

Keep pushing for constant improvement while maintaining the great culture that's there. Keep bringing in more people who want to make a difference and work hard to move the company forward.

    I worked at Zipcar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    laid back atmosphere, lots of free food

    Cons

    everyone is so lazy. people just waste time talking in the kitchen, socializing, walking around the mall--no wonder why this company is failing

    Advice to Management

    start pushing out the bad seeds and recognize the talent you do have.
