    Pros

    Very good people to work with. Strong team Dynamic

    Cons

    Middle Management is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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    Industry culture still needs to evolve...some pockets across the country where the leadership style is outdated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

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

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for and benefits with good pay.

    Cons

    The location i worked had politics going on were if you were an hard working employee you didnt get rewarded but if lied on your reports and fudged your numbers and just lied they loved you. Seem to me the HR and Location Manager were in on things they protected the bad employees and punished the good ones guess thats why they have a high turnover of Employee's.

    I have been working at Republic Services full-time

    Pros

    Some locations have a great culture. Relaxed dress code. Decent sick and vacation policies. Advancement is possible.

    Cons

    Limited bonus potential and some locations are not team players. To advance, you must be willing to transfer to the corporate office. Pay seems lower than competitors. As with most large companies, innovation can be slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate managers of all teams. Great leaders produce great results. Poor leaders produce excuses.
