    Pros

    I worked as a contract employee with great people in a great environment. I would have loved to stay, but they only seem to hire MBAs and/or ex-Big 4 auditors for permanent positions.

    Cons

    None. Always treated fairly and as a member of the team, even as a contractor, and for the intern that I saw there also; two categories that are frequently not treated well.

    Advice to Management

    You could get some great and eager employees if you would look at the persons whole background, not just the educational pedigree.

    Republic Services has a clear vision of where they want to go and aggressive plans on how to get there.

    Republic Services has an issue with siloes. You are often pulled in different directions by different silos within the company.

    I worked at Republic Services

    Pros

    Some of the pro's to being on Republic's team: salary plus commission, mileage incentive for on the road, sales rep position roughly 25% office time.

    Cons

    some of the cons to republic would be: Moving up in the company takes time. Come in as a higher level position they will train you.

    Advice to Management

    Management has tough roll dealing with lots of issues all the time. They seem to be highly motivated and quick to resolve issues. They listen and respect everyone.

    Pros

    Very good people to work with. Strong team Dynamic

    Cons

    Middle Management is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Shrink down and remove everything between BU and corporate....there is no need to have three layers of strictly managers in between.

    Pros

    Company is focused on the right things - customers and it's employees. Exciting time to be here.

    Cons

    Industry culture still needs to evolve...some pockets across the country where the leadership style is outdated

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and hold leaders accountable for how they get their results, not just the numbers.
