I have been working at Republic Services full-time (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 Management

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.

    Pros

    There is plenty of space to operate as you see fit with limited oversight other than results, but that may not apply to all divisions, areas, regions. There is good opportunity to sell as everyone needs the service.

    Cons

    The market has recently been experiencing a price war and it is sometimes hard to sell uniqueness. The industry is also littered with brokers that are mostly parasites and rarely if ever, bring value. There are also plenty of industry castoffs that pop up in various ne places and try to pass themselves off as experts, especially in new "green" technologies that are usually not sustainable of viable solutions, just repackaged junk. The problem is that many corporate, larger companies are suckers for bogus "green" initiatives and sometimes buy into the myth of new so called solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Look to create a strategy that markets our strong position to exclude any engagement with brokers and enables us to drive our narrative in the media. Our smaller, niche competition is winning the PR war and taking accounts through less than honest practices, yet continue to see positive press coverage.
