    Pros

    Free parking, some really great people, benefits are great

    Cons

    Lots of back and forth arguing between co-workers and management. Also, there were a lot of rumors and there was no room for growth in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that Avis budget is actually a really good company to work for. I think I was just hired at the wrong time and in the wrong place.

    Pros

    Easy to earn big with the Commission system referred to as CSI despite some glitches in its design as long as you understand the system , provided that you obtain strong people's skills and strong personality and confidence as a sales person.

    Cons

    It doesn't seem that the company cares about promoting or keeping great talents , also ops managers are hired without apparent qualifications to fit the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this advise basically is for senior management, you need to stand up to the corporate and tell them that things on the ground are not the same as they seem from their high towers, also rental sales agents needs to meet with regional sales managers occasionally to give important feed back and discuss rising difficulties.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group

    Pros

    Depending on location, very good company to work for.

    Cons

    Very very focused on your sales of optional products. Each location is basically franchised out, so you aren't technically working for the company as a whole, so you don't get all the benefits of working for the corporation.
