Enjoyed my time at ABG, but the new North American SLT is more concerned with appearances than results.

Director (Former Employee)
Parsippany, NJ (US)

I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time for more than 8 years

ProsFun job, great people. CEO Ron Nelson is a rock star who has led the company incredibly well and made genius acquisitions.

ConsThe political environment in the North American group is unbelievable, Pres decides if he likes you or not and they boys take it from there.

Advice to Senior ManagementDitch the emphasis on politics and measure the individual, not how much they appear to agree with you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
