No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Republic Services full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay, good benefits, 401k w/ percentage company match

Cons

Limited growth opportunities, inefficient procedures, little inside support for outside reps

Advice to Management

Restructure sales initiatives to focus on growth and true retention efforts with customer. Time wasted on collections, price increases,handling operational calls are better spent increasing revenue. Seems company has reduced headcount in these areas and expect sales people to cover. Little or no advancement opportunity. Rediculous internal paperwork constraints . Annual commission plan changes blatanly reflect company intent to reduce compensation, and increase workload. Worklife/ homelife balance is terrible.

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The building is in a nice location with plenty of places to eat lunch.

    Cons

    Unless you are going in as a consultant, don't waste your time. There are groups of consultants that have been there for years. They are truly running the organization. Management can't hire them as they are too expensive, can't get rid of them because they hold all the key positions. For this reason as an employee you can count on zero chance of advancement and close to zero raise.

    Advice to Management

    Educate yourself on how to treat your employees better than the hoards of contractors that you utilize. Employee morale would Improve if you would treat them with the same respect you give to the contracting groups. Trim the middle managers. Managers shouldn't outnumber the employees. A manager should be able to manage more than one to two employees.
