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    Industry culture still needs to evolve...some pockets across the country where the leadership style is outdated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

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

    Pros

    Great Management Teams who listen to their employees and their customers needs. They make sure you have all the up-to-date tools to make sure you are successful. Great Benifits and promotes within.

    Cons

    Some times promotions are not given because they do not want to have to replace you at your position.

    Advice to Management

    Promote deserving employees even if they are going to be hard to replace or the timing is not great for budget reasons. These employees are the ones you do not want to lose and also are the employees that will recruit and bring in other great workers.

    Pros

    None. Oh wait, you can throw your garbage away for free.

    Cons

    Management is poor. Lack of tools to do the job correctly. Computer systems are beyond archaic and don't forget that the customer will get a 20% rate adjustment every 8 months

    Advice to Management

    Stop making VP's. Take a look at the divisions.

    Pros

    Some great people to work with...I enjoyed interacting with fellow employees to assist with their questions. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Company culture needs improvement, low morale in certain departments/BU's, lack of management in some areas

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more accountability and less favoritism in certain departments...maybe some of the quality employees will stick around.
