I worked at Republic Services full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Upper management very friendly and approachable; open communication direct from the CEO with quarterly town hall meetings at corporate office; good promote from within plan; can easily transfer between departments after 1 year; health benefits offered diverse variety and build a plan option so you control costs and benefits.

Cons

While the company has a comparatively generous PTO plan (3 weeks of vacation in year 2), there is no flexibility to negotiate anything more or an option to take additional unpaid time off. Holidays are slight. Corporate office is crowded and those in cube farms can easily feel overlooked as valued employees. Also cubicles have short walls so there is nothing to block out distraction and is difficult to focus on job.

Advice to Management

Offer employees flexibility with PTO option to have additional time off unpaid (for instance, up to two weeks off unpaid with prior approval) to allow more work-life balance. Also please change cubicles to have higher walls. This may discourage employees from shouting across departments to fellow employees and aid in productivity.
