    I worked at Avis Budget Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Benefits: any non-management employee who works at a corporate office (Parsippany, Virginia Beach, Tulsa) becomes benefit eligible the first of the month after they began working. The employee has access to every available benefit option. You are also auto-enrolled in the 401k plan at the same time that you become benefit eligible. The benefits are very reasonable and usually don't increase by more than $1-3 every year.
    - Holidays: if you work in an office you're guaranteed your regular holidays (July 4, MLK day) and sometimes your building VP or the higher-ups in corporate will randomly give you a full day (Labor Free Friday) or half-days (Friday before Easter) off. I believe this is exclusive to Virginia Beach and Parsippany.
    - Work Environment: The building is kept spotless and the facilities are in great condition. Any issue you do have is resolved within that week. The people are also extremely friendly, even total strangers.
    - Dresscode: I worked in Virginia Beach and the building was casual (jeans, t-shirt, sneakers). Yes, you're allowed to wears jeans and sneakers in the VAB office. There were however a small number of departments that required business casual.
    - Corporate perks: catered lunches for the Superbowl, vendor fairs with freebies or discounts, on-site awesome nurse who will write and order RXs for you
    - Work culture: the company does a good job of making sure that you're work environment is as friendly and entertaining as possible and they do make sure you have time to spend with family (random days off).

    Cons

    - From what I've seen, the pay can be pretty-low in some departments
    - Depending on what your department, it may be difficult to get into another one. If you intend to apply to another department, it's best if you have experience with rentals, accounting/finance, billing, collections

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This advice is specific to only my department, so don't apply this to the whole company.

    - Don't be a manager if you cannot deal with confrontation. Your inability to confront issues is what creates the "tension" you speak often about amongst employees.
    - Don't pick a minor issue to confront (missing breaks) to feel like you're actually dealing with an issue in order to avoid more important ones (consistent tardies, multiple daily 30 minute breaks, watching TV). Employees are more aggravated that you turn a not-so blind-eye to these larger issues creating more "tension".

    They treat their employers with respect.

    They practice a "healthy environment" while feeding their employers pizza and candy most people are obese there and it is just depressing to work in that kind of environment.

    Salary, company car is used as a part of the compensation, but if you have your own relatively new car, more money is desirable.
