    Pros

    Great work life balance, great vacation, easy work. A 9-5 gig with no pressure/stress. Easy to look like a rock star.

    Cons

    Absolutely no innovation and zero focus on the customer. Totally operations/sales-driven culture. Pace is very slow and no drive to innovate or compete with a rapidly changing marketplace. Very incestuous culture, good ole boys club. Leadership is uninspiring. I'm surprise this company hasn't been eaten by the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    clean house and bring in real talent

    Pros

    Willing to listen to your ideas and suggestions and willing to help you relocate should you decide to pursue a career and move up in the company.

    Cons

    When the opportunity arises for promotion to another location, even if the other location deems you qualified and wants you, your direct supervisor can decline the transfer if they don't want to have to find a replacement. Does this mean this practice is rampant in the company? No, just what myself and a few other colleagues have experienced. Management pay is not very good. There are some hourly employees making better than managers. Which explains a lot of turnover in this company in management. For what you are responsible for, you are under compensated. HR could be better, I've outlived two HR managers in FL which is not a good indication of the direction they are headed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training in the MTC for Union locations and structuring of bonus structures for locations where management feels a better incentive to work on VOTC and CSI. VOTC portal needs to be re-evaluated and structured so that one-way rentals that receive bad feedback do not hurt the other location that was not involved (i.e. Bad return should not affect pick-up location) and see how much more responsive VOTC captains respond.
