Pros

Good benefits etc like with most large companies

Cons

Key decisions are not made at local division.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Way to many people sitting around staring at spreadsheets making uninformed decisions. Go back to old Republic where people actually enjoyed their jobs.

    I have been working at Republic Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great business to be in
    Flexible Schedule
    Lot of potential to be a great company

    Cons

    Too much "politics"
    Not enough communication
    Sexist/Racist
    Low Morale among employees
    Internal promotions are very minimal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop paying Managers so much money to do nothing. Stop comming up with all these new programs that never pan out yet cost a ton of money. If Don Slager really wants a company that runs well, it would be nice if he would hold his GM's and Region employees to the fire as opposed to "laying off" and cutting overtime for support staff.

    Former Employee - District Sales Manager

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Broad resource availability from national-footprint company.
    Multiple lines of business and career opportunities.

    Cons

    Locally, not committed to innovative waste management solutions.
    Old-school company, without innovative internal technologies or processes.
    "Sales" treated as a "step child" of "Operations"; not given equitable voice in company success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branches need more specific attention to local needs.
    Integrate the sales function into the overall success of the branch and company!
