I worked at Republic Services full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are descent.They paid a living wage/salary. It was a great first career for me and provided valuable business lessons. I would never see it as my forever career.

Cons

There were limitations on how far you could advance depending on how much time you were willing to give up with your family. As I value family more, I knew I wasn't going much further.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You would get better, more qualified people in positions if a work/life balance was promoted.

    Pros

    The building is in a nice location with plenty of places to eat lunch.

    Cons

    Unless you are going in as a consultant, don't waste your time. There are groups of consultants that have been there for years. They are truly running the organization. Management can't hire them as they are too expensive, can't get rid of them because they hold all the key positions. For this reason as an employee you can count on zero chance of advancement and close to zero raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate yourself on how to treat your employees better than the hoards of contractors that you utilize. Employee morale would Improve if you would treat them with the same respect you give to the contracting groups. Trim the middle managers. Managers shouldn't outnumber the employees. A manager should be able to manage more than one to two employees.
