    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.

    Company is large enough you can relocate. Pay is fair. Good people. Management is fair. Benefits available. Vacation time is fair.

    Pros

    This company has been very good to me and my family. With a lot of hard work I was able to advance quickly; there is a lot of room for growth in nearly every department. I thank God for the opportunity to work for such a great company with lots of great benefits beyond the monetary value.

    Cons

    I really have no cons to report.

    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!
