I have been working at Republic Services full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

open door policy, benefits,. work hours

Cons

no advancement, fraudulent open door policy, raises and salary

Advice to ManagementAdvice

.75 -1.00 raises are a good thing, this .20 raises are chicken feed, not going to keep top performers with that, even with the economy issues.

    Pros

    If you do a good job you are richly rewarded for it, constant praise for work well done. Great pay, great benefits. Managers are professional, experienced, and respectful to all of their employees, even employees that frankly are doing sub-par at best.

    Cons

    can't goof off all day at work, no texting on the job, you have to do your job right....basically slackers and whiners need not apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    delegate more responsibilities to employees to free up more time. If employees are not up to the task, try to find them something else they can do. If they can't do anything right-replace

    I have been working at Republic Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Those who are good at sales can achieve sales goals on a pretty generous commission plan.
    A lot of autonomy and freedom over pricing, sales and scheduling of most daily activities.

    Cons

    Company lacks organization and defined direction. Leaders do not take insight from their employees. Employees must be yes men. Not a lot of attractive advancement opportunities. Office is divided into a class system. Office personnel>Sales>Operations and it is made quite obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people, value those who make you successful and in a large conglomerate company that is striving to gain direction and policy listening ears will provide more answers than loud mouths.
