    Pros

    Worked for sales department in a account management job. Great co-workers and office environment. Pay was good for job. Hours were set by the account so no flexibility there, but were very flexible when needed. My direct management was very positive.

    Cons

    As with any large publicly traded company you could get lost in the advancement opportunity. Staying #1 is the high priority in public opinion. Maybe not so much with employees. Overall my experience was good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the little ones who do the day to day grunt work for you

    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Newark, NJ (US)

    Pros

    You get a car as a manager.

    Cons

    50 to 60 hour work weeks. Unionized tenured employees. Very immature work atmosphere. Politics! Very inappropriate chatter-they constantly talk about sex and use abrasive language. They will gang up on you and get you fired if they don't like you. There is absolutely no job security. If you plan on making a change and creating a better work environment-beware-they will strategize your demise. The managers do not communicate-very cut throat environment. If you are an attractive female-You will have enemies- the men will be very inappropriate(even the managers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the favortism. Support the managers in their efforts to make the company better.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits and its 40 hours

    Cons

    In Albuquerque NM the upper management loves intimidation techniques! The ops managers are over worked and understaffed and never on the same page. We consistently take abuse from upper management and customers. Management seems to lazy to deal with the red tape of getting rid of employees who are completely useless which leaves the bulk of the workload on everyone else. There is mo room for advancement the airport and district managers are more interested in a bra size than a competent employee! I have never ever worked for a company who has treated their employees so bad in my life! They talk this big talk family first..... yeah right! The airport and district managers in abq should be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like human beings and stop trying to bully and scare us! Want to know why hertz and enterprise are on top? Their employees are treated with a little bit more respect!

    Current Employee - CLE in Parsippany, NJ (US)

    Pros

    I found out about Avis Budget Group through a friend. He had interned at ABG in the summer during his college career. He had nothing but great things to say about the company. He reccomended that I'd be a good fit in the CLE department based on my past jobs. I applied thinking that I wouldn't hear back from ABG.
    After the phone and face to face interview, I was welcomed into the CLE team. This experience so far, has been awesome. I work with a great group of people who encourage and support each other when they need it. I'm really glad I chose to spend my summer with ABG.

    Cons

    I haven't experience anything to be considered a con but I do hear a lot of compliants about the HR team from many different people in the building.

    Pros

    Gives you a good platform to outnumber one-self. A very encouraging and firm unit supplemented by some strong leadership!

    Cons

    Strong competition - its a pro rather than a con! Mindsets and beliefs need to vary with pacing time and opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do best!
