Support from management

No training for any of their positions.

Teamwork

At the employee level, good cooperation. At upper management level, lots of games and backstabbing.

Freedom to work independently

As in “here’s the keys, good luck”

Gender Equality

Women are rare at upper levels and aren’t paid the same.

Environmental Friendliness

Watch your back

Company Culture

The culture is constantly changing. It cannot seem to find an identity.

Support from management

Direction is vague and advisement from management, if you can contact them, is more often than not- dismissive.

Teamwork

In the Atlanta area "team" and "team work" are used a lot. The business model actually pits locations against each other.

Freedom to work independently

Yes, to the fault of your immediate management.

Internal Communication

Communication is there and frequent. Unfortunately between different departments and management levels it often conflicts.

Gender Equality

it would seem so.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I believe they are weeding out the pre-millennial management force as inconspicuously as they can.

Career Development

it was available at one time.

Overall compensation for your work

if you take into account the hours you have to work and the increasing difficulty of meeting bonus objectives their pay scales are miserable.

Office / Work Environment

facilities/branch are slowly being upgraded, 20 years late and often the shops are overlooked.

Environmental Friendliness

only if there are tax breaks or incentives.

Work-Life Balance

the workload and responsibilities on field/branch managers is insurmountable.

Company Image

From the consumers standpoint I think it is good. Internally not so hot.

Job Security

The company is in constant flux. I think stability went away when Ford sold Hertz. I do not think with their current pay structure and management they will see stability any time soon.

Handicapped Accessibility

none.

Workplace Safety

They do provide annual reoccurring safety training on the computer. It is all smoke and mirrors. If the staffing levels were commensurate to the work load and expected business level safety would be inherent. The safety department does a good job despite it's lack of a workforce.

Challenging Work

The work is easy, the minimal resources they provide make it difficult to accomplish the goals they set.

Inclusive / Diverse

hard to say. it's not very evident.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Find one direction, find one source to communicate it, incentivize and reward fairly and honestly, realize you manage a construction equipment rental company. It doesn't have to be as complicated as you have made it for field level managers.

What I like about the company

They were beginning to get the company into the 21st century, technologically speaking.

What I dislike about the company

management, business model, work/pay imbalance, very few if any family benefits outside of health.
