    I have been working at LeasePlan USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company currently under transition. Moving from a leadership team interested in transactional sales, tactical strategy and growth for growths sake to leadership interested in long term strategy, long term business development and creating true partnerships where the clients can't get away with walking over employees.

    Cons

    Because of the transition many people were loyal to the previous leadership. The people care more about dress code and food then going the extra mile and being professional.

    I have been working at LeasePlan USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The environment and co-workers. Pleasant supportive environment. Great things come from happy employees who are committed to the company and mission. This has been the situation. Moving forward, who knows.

    Cons

    New CEO demeans and intimidates. Not Team or Client oriented. Jeff Schlesinger will not be positive for Lease Plan. COO can be great, if allowed to be. No one is positive about CEO. Very sad, tense and unsettling time for LeasePlanners who like (liked?) to say they bleed orange.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Jeff Schlesinger is simply not a good match for the position. It's palpable.
    There are many completely professional, very capable people at Lease Plan. They will be able to go elsewhere, if necessary.

    I have been working at LeasePlan USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A company where many of the employees are 10+ years. A company that likes to work hard and play just as hard.

    Cons

    Use to be a great place to work but with recent changes, everyone is unsure where the future will take them. A great deal of upper management have left and it leaves one wondering if they should do the same.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees!

    Pros

    You may get a position there, during the massacre and help reconstruct it once the Dictator is gone!

    Cons

    I don't know where to start... The new leadership has taken a Top Places to Work in Atlanta and Chicago, to a Top Places to Exit globally. CEO now stands for Clueless Executive Orifice! Many within the industry and within the company are completely befuddled how this manager of 1, became a leader of many. He is heartless, overwhelmed, and an empty suit! He has single handedly taken a Fortune magazine #23 Top mid-sized company, to a bottom feeder where employees work in fear and are out for themselves, not for the betterment of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Know your employees are your greatest assets. To the rest of executive and senior management, SPEAK UP to corporate and let them know of the culture crash!

    Pros

    Company has reasonable benefits and average pay. Nice facility and convenient location in Alpharetta. Great people who really do their best to work together while having a social connection

    Cons

    Company is transitioning to new management. I can't even guess as to where things are going here. I would suggest finding another place at this time given the job market. This organization will be in free fall for the next year plus. I would predict a high level of turnover in the senior and mid management ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Get in or out. If you are selling the portfolio, just let people know. The environment is toxic and there is a lack of leadership at the top. Jeff Schlesinger appears to be working on an entirely different agenda that trying to make the company a better place.

    Pros

    Mostly good people and a happy environment. They try to treat people right for sure. The company itself has a lot of potential.

    Cons

    This company has a complete attitude of complacency. They are selling a fun loving attitude and progressive company that was reality five years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology.

    Pros

    Great culture and work life balance. Upper management is open and easy to approach. I have always felt that my contributions are valued. Great benefits.

    Cons

    The company is in a transitional phase under new ownership, which has caused some uncertainty as to what changes will be coming.

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is as good as it gets. Very family oriented. Down to earth upper management team seems to genuinely care about the employees.

    Cons

    Impossible to climb the ladder with any speed. Very low turnover in management doesn't create much opportunity. Lots of people vying for very few management spots.

    I worked at LeasePlan USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    1) The company's benefit package is among some of the best available right now. Perks are even better if you're Director level and above.

    2) The flexibility to be off of work for family/life matters is unparalleled. Almost everyone in Management has children and are very understanding of such things.

    3) You're almost guaranteed lifetime employment by simply showing up for work; no extra effort required.

    4) You'll meet some nice people; may make some great friends; MANY have found spouses.

    Cons

    1) The company's culture is very clique-ish. Initially, you get the welcoming feeling of the company being a close knit family but soon realize that the "parents" in the family play favorites. If you don't make the "right" friends, you're less likely to get noticed/promoted.

    2) People are allowed to maintain employment, FOR YEARS, even after repeatedly proving they're incompetent, lackadaisical, and/or toxic to the work environment in general.

    3) Management, as a whole, does not follow the "public" example that the CEO portrays and advocates. I quote public because I don't if the CEO is a different person behind closed doors but his words and actions to the general employee population are loving, kind, encouraging and endearing. His management is a nightmare!...ESPECIALLY in the Client Services and IT departments. The CIO couldn't lead her way out of a room comprised solely of doors with flashing neon signs above them clearly marking the exits while holding a visual aid depicting how to exit the room! As a result of this, her management bickers amongst themselves as undisciplined children and lead by whatever tickles their fancy while wasting the employee's time and the company's money.

    4) Since the acquisition by the European conglomerate, the company's focus is more profit-driven than people-driven. The company's culture was once "happy employee = happy customer" but has now changed to only care about the company's bottom line - no matter the cost to the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your.......wallets! The company is never going to achieve the greatness that it once had if you continue to treat the workforce as disposable labor that should be grateful with simply receiving a paycheck every two weeks! Chaining people to their desk with workloads that produce consecutive 10+ hour days, creating an atmosphere where people are afraid to take lunch breaks -- let alone "bio-breaks", and removing any form of relief from the workday (i.e. headphones/music, decorating their cubicles, company activities away from the desk/building) is not conducive of a healthy work environment and is proof of why you continue to barely make your annual plans. Hire more talent, hire the RIGHT talent, and promote COMPETENT management and the company will return to its former glory.

    Pros

    Culture - the company appreciates their employees. Good work/home balance, and there is a strong sense of family. Casual/laid back work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very little room for growth. Upper management does not see/address the disconnect between departments which causes major issues. Unfortunately the culture has been eroding since I began working there in 2012. Bonuses are based on the performance of the company as a whole and not the individual employee, so valuable employees with larger clients bringing in $$$ are not awarded financially.

    Advice to Management

    Take a different approach with the bonus structure - find a better way to keep your valuable employees.
