    I have been working at Sixt full-time

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money in the summer with commission.

    Cons

    Basic salary and rely on commission to make the job worth while. Management ignore problems along as the company makes money. Employees are not treated equally and there are no benefits at all. Very long hours. High turn over, very difficult to progress higher. Treated like children. Plenty of back stabbing.

    I worked at Sixt full-time

    Pros

    Imagine a place where the cars are clean, the management are friendly to one another, you're blinded by orange and the service is impeccable. And before you ask I'm not describing EasyJet. Like a half eaten Terry's egg - orange with a hint of brown - this is Sixt, friendly management to one another and (for the most part) clean cars. If you want to move up then this is doable, albeit you'll be worked harder than a working girls bedsprings and for very little reward to boot (so let's call it a bad looking working girl). Essentially, like Newtons third law, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction - although in this case it's good and bad - and incidentally I can name approximately 1902 things like this for just Sixt alone, which by a coincidence is the year it was founded. And also the year your mum was born. If you like selling in a B2B market Sixt is a decent place to work, giving you quite a lot of freedom to go out and expand the business beyond the usual remit. However seeing as you're overseen by perhaps the most disjointed sales team in history, and that doing it was as boring as watching paint watching paint dry (paint-ception) I'd rather drag my balls through a mile of lemon soaked glass.

    Cons

    Like a mountain there are downsides to working for Germany's premier rental car service, and plenty of them indeed, filled with sharp rocks and mountain goats. Except the sharp rocks are rude customers. And the mountain goats are business owners who require vans LITERALLY RIGHT NOW. The fleet. You might expect that being a rental firm you would ensure that the business have the cars currently being advertised, right? Except NOPE. It's the petrol powered equivalent of walking into Tesco to collect your christmas turkey only to discover the turkey is in fact a 500g packet of mince, and when you're told the disinterested woman on the checkout tells you "well it's meat isn't it?" Cue yelling.

    I have been working at Sixt full-time

    Pros

    The new micro-services platform is very cool and it is a pleasure to work with it. Nice and knowledgeable colleagues.

    Cons

    Weird experience of the direct management. I would expect them to ask less questions and take more decisions, where applicable for the role. My feeling is that this behavior is taken as a role model from many developers, which at the end may harm the motivation in a team.
