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

    Pros

    The company is growing and there are a lot of opportunities to be promoted within.
    There is a family atmosphere. Coworkers genuinely care about each other.
    We work hard and we play hard. The company is made up of a great group of professionals that take pride in their work, and it is a fun group of people. There are several company outings and get togethers through out the year.

    Cons

    In the past, the pay has been criticized for being below industry standard. Since the company has been acquired by Avis Budget Group, we have seen improvements that have made salaries more competitive in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the forward momentum
