    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to advance within the company. All senior positions are hired internally, there is literally no one who is hired externally. Not demanding physically or emotionally. Can't envision the company stopping growth soon, so many opportunities for promotions and making money.

    Cons

    Feels cultish because of how private everything is in the company and how tightly regulated everything is from the top down. Made me shave my beard for example (employees are required to be clean shaven). As sexist of a work environment as you would imagine working for a company dominated by men and dealing with cars. Employee development is mostly focused on development for internal promotion and not on you. The first two "stages" Management Trainee and Mangement Trainee Intern are an incredible amount of work.

    Pros

    Enterprise is a great start to a career, either in the company or at other places. It teaches you foundational principles in sales, marketing, financial analysis, customer service and hard work.
    + Good Benefits (Health, vision, dental, 401k match, profit sharing, etc.)
    + Great people to work with (They hire very positive, motivated, passionate people)
    + Helps you to develop a strong work ethic if you stick it out
    + Average starting wage

    Cons

    At Enterprise you are expected to work hard and push yourself. People who excel in sales are the ones who get promoted first and foremost.
    + People who sell well are given preferential treatment when it comes to promotion.
    + 50+ hour work weeks
    + 7am start time (not a 9-5)

    Advice to Management

    Help create programs for people who may not excel in sales. It may help fill some of the gaps in the other aspects of the business.

    I have been working at Enterprise Rent-A-Car full-time

    Pros

    Great incentives including bonuses monthly. Great management with positive enthusiasm. A definite plus is the freedom to work from home full time; plenty of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Not too many cons to the actual job besides not getting to actually meet the people on your team. We do talk via chats and sometimes in the meetings. When the calls are busy it is a lot of stress; no down time in between calls at all.

    Advice to Management

    The micro managing from the TM is annoying and it pushes the employees away. I understand that we have the freedom to work from home but everyday stats and whereabouts is frustrating to most.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for as long as you can produce your numbers. They hire from within and you can rise through the ranks fast as long as you have a great work ethic. Money is great

    Cons

    Not a company that you will retire from. Get the experience and move on.

    Advice to Management

    upper Management need to have a better since of urgency to help get Area Managers and above promoted.
