    Pros

    Great people - sense that everyone genuinely cared about the success of the mission and customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Extremely poor communication on the part of senior management, an unwillingness to communicate unpleasant news either internally or to customers.

    Advice to Management

    You're getting paid to lead - that means taking leadership even when you're making unpopular decisions.

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

    Pros

    - there are a lot of driven, intelligent people at the company who truly care about car-sharing and having an impact
    - very relaxed office atmosphere; casual dress code, summer fridays, beer carts
    - managers take an interest in building your skillset as an employee

    Cons

    - sporadic layoffs are handled poorly by leadership; ABG keeps cutting to try and squeeze profit out of us, but there is not much more room to cut.
    - high turnover: intelligent people leave the company because of too many reorgs
    - salary truly leaves something to be desired

    Advice to Management

    - Improve your onboarding process so employees aren't thrown to the wolves as soon as they start
    - Have a more tangible system of progression and promotion throughout the company so that talented people don't leave
    - Leadership Team needs to more clearly communicate our needs to Avis. If they don't invest in us and our future, there is no way we will succeed.
