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

    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

    I had several managers where few were just concerned to increase sales and profits, while other were real managers, who dedicated their time to make the company better place

    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!

    I have been working at Avis Budget Group as an intern for less than a year

    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.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group

    Pros

    Drive new cars around the parking lot. Everyone is really friendly and willing to help. Managers are friendly and are pretty easy going.

    Cons

    Long hours, however the breaks are pretty long. You drive many cars, it can get repetitive. Its a 24 hour business.
