    I worked at Avis Budget Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The Senior Leadership Team is very inspirational to it's employees. The Senior Team attributes the success of the company to the people of the company. There is a lot of opportunity for self improvement in this company. Amazing people to work with. People are ready to invest in you for your growth.

    Cons

    The hourly rate could have been a little more for the interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Keep focusing on the vision of the company.

    Management has a serious lack of communication and serious problems with follow thru.

    Consider promoting from within when there are qualified candidates regardless of having a degree or not.

    Pros

    Avis Budget is a good company to work for, they treat employees with respect. Are always having employee appreciation meals. Make you feel like you mean something to them, not just another number. Get to drive cars like the Camaro SS and trucks like the Ford F-150! And even the BMW 528i!

    Cons

    None really, other than busy Houston traffic and long hours driving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seem to be doing a good job, keep it up!

    Pros

    The only pro is that they pay ok compared to other companies

    Cons

    Managers don't manage. Enough said., people who have seniority take advantage of new people, it's hot they don't provide water. The whole system of operations is to benefit only the people with seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many people quit or find other jobs because the people who have been there many years expect you to do everything and they take advantage of you. And managers don't do anything about it.

    Pros

    Flexible hours especially when you don't want them.

    Poor management with everyone doing their own thing completely contradictory to any good common sense.
    sales goals are unrealistic especially ifyou work the off hour airport shifts.;
    Cars are given for free use to subsidize low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic sales goals for counter help and pay a realistic wage.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group

    Pros

    Easy work if your looking for something part time.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, low pay, lazy supervisors, regional manager lacks education and management skills, management doesn't care about their employees just their bonus check (that would be true about the regional manager too).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take action when employees tell you something is wrong or isn't working. Brainstorm solutions to the problems don't just pretend that they don't exist. Teamwork!!!
      Pay the employees better and they will value their jobs more and care more about the company. Find the weak links in the Lead positions and get rid of them. Their are other employees that should be a lead (leadership) positions. Not someone who barks orders and drives around doing nothing all day..... Lead by example.

    Terrible HR Department

    Former Employee - Analyst in Parsippany, NJ (US)
    Former Employee - Analyst in Parsippany, NJ (US)

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - The culture was laid back including business casual dress code
    - All summer you get out of work at 2:30 (obviously you need to make up the time during the week)
    - Enjoyed the people I worked with
    - Great cafeteria
    - Easy commute

    Cons

    Major disappointment was the HR department. They are so concerned with their own little projects and goals that they fail to meet the most important goal of HR, to take care of their [potential] employees. They rarely answer emails and if you finally get a response, good luck getting an answer to a follow up. The only way to get anything done is to go down to HR and knock on somebody's door. It's almost like Milton from Office Space!

    Another con would be the somewhat bland working environment. Pretty old school looking cube farm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to get on the top 100 places to work list, get better HR employees that care about your workers, not themselves.
