    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at United Rentals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Insurance. Probably ok if you're a technician, mechanic or truck driver.

    Cons

    This is the poster child for corporate America. Operates as CYA atmosphere and one had better watch their back, as no one there will. Only care about "what you've done for me lately". Made many promises, but did not full fill their end. Many many levels of management and each level micro manages the next.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people you hired to their job! Do not micro manage!
