    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Women's united is a program they have to network and become aware of advancement opportunities in the company. Also a great company for veterans.

    Cons

    Can be slow to move up unless you are open to transferring. Too many people think the person who has been there longest deserves a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Seniority doesn't equal more qualified.

    Pros

    Benifits are second to none. Competative compensation. The company seems to care for their employees and the support at each branch is like none i've seen before. I have been afforded the opportunity to work my territory and manage it with only positive direction from management.

    Cons

    Any cons i have had have been addressed by management and resolved to the benifit of myself and the Company. UR has their best interest at heart but they understand that their employees are what makes UR sucessful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep adding fleet.
