    I have been working at Republic Services full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits Decent Salary Opportunities for learning Secure and Stable Company

    Cons

    -No leadership/mentoring from managers -Unclear guidance on how to get promoted -As an ambitious but loyal employee, I am frustrated at the lack of career growth. -I see many talented and intelligent employees "stuck" in the same position for years while others are promoted every year. There is not a fair system in place to promote quality employees.

    Advice to Management

    Better career paths for employees and clear expectations for obtaining promotions.

    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.

    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.
