    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The biggest pro is the people, there is a certain type of people that stay in the company and make it a great place to work.

    Cons

    Still adapting to the new very american culture having been two independent entities for many years.

    Advice to Management

    Don't under estimate the value of people with knowledge of the legacy systems like Wizard

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time

    Pros

    Fun work environment, really nice office (refurbished), challenging but exciting role, opportunities to get involved in other departmental projects.

    Cons

    Some tasks can be quite repetitive, but overall this is a very interesting role.

    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, bonuses, pay. It's a large and established corporation that provides a very good structure at every level. Training is available, there is an opportunity to move between departments and progress, although there is some competition and you have to fight your way to the top. Overall great business to work in, and to understand how such organisations function.

    Cons

    As a large business, things take a very long time to get done due to formalities, having to jump through hoops and for digital marketing that is simply counter-intuitive. Test & learn is not a company motto. As with big businesses, there is a lot of politics and gossip that can lead to wrongful decision-making, especially at senior management/director level. Big cultural rift between Europe and US offices, very America-centric when it comes to business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the BS, focus on numbers and listen to your teams more. In the digital sphere be willing to roll out new features, campaigns and initiatives fast, test, learn and implement changes fast to keep up to speed with tech developments.

    Pros

    Good for university graduates as it gives a perspective on working in a large enterprise Good work/life balance - work/life balance is good

    Cons

    Managers are too young and not properly prepared to lead by example. HR is inexistent No possibility to climb the corporate ladder as the job allows only for 1 promotion max (from analyst to senior analyst) Location is terrible Little benefits (not even half the price discount on car rentals...) with no transportation benefit Declining industry with little future
