I have been working at Zipcar full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart, laid-back, but hard-working people. Family atmosphere. Recent corporate acquisition has created a lot of opportunities for growth.

Cons

A slightly ossified culture that is finally becoming more dynamic, but some of the effects still linger.

Advice to Management

Put your people first. At all times. Innovation is stifled without the proper level of communication and transparency.

    Listen to members and communicate and change things they've been asking is to change like have one way, flexible reservations like 15 min increments and ending res when over. Also communicate when renewal of membership is coming.

    I worked at Zipcar full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Laid back atmosphere
    Co-workers believe in the product

    Cons

    Out of touch management
    Lack of communication between management and employees
    Lack of benefits
    Low pay

    Advice to Management

    Get more in touch with your employees and fix the communication between corporate and local offices - the ball gets dropped somewhere along the way. Realize the amount of work your employees do for the little pay they receive. The reason they do this work for terrible pay & benefits is because the majority of them believe in the company and what the model stands for.
