No opinion of CEO

Pros

Compensation is somewhat in line with competition.
Bonus, if actually achievable, is generous. Although 50% of 0 is still 0.

Cons

Company is highly centralized, be it on a Corporate or Regional level. Very little is controlled by the local markets.
RSG loves standards, employees can take very little action, must be within the standards.

Advice to Management

Talk is cheap, actually put the what your saying into action.
Put your people first, and realize your best players are in the field; not at the region or corporate level.
Empower employees locally, then hold them accountable for their actions.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    They are one of the most competitive waste companies in the triangle area and no one is paying as much.

    Management can be a joke at times. There is a huge lack of communication. They is a lack of respect also.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the drivers that are there year after year giving their blood sweat and tears and not the newbies like they do now.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good Money and Benefits with autonomy.

    Cons

    Allied Waste's horrible customer service leads to clients calling in and complaining. It's a tough position to defend when the pricing tends to be the highest in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Better customer service leads to better retention rates. This will allow you to keep rates high and not have to worry about bringing on new business constantly. Its cheaper to keep business than get new business.
