    I have been working at Republic Services full-time

    Pros

    Republic is the best place I have worked. Our company culture and business strategy are resulting in consistent and sustainable success. We are a hard-working business filled with hard-working people. This makes it a pleasure to come to work each and every day.

    Cons

    We work hard to support the communities and customers we service. This will mean some long hours and holidays when necessary. Not everyone has what it takes to be dedicated at this level.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let Don Slager retire!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Republic Services (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall was a good place to work. For the most part the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Better be willing to give the CEO a standing ovation when he walks into the room.

    Advice to Management

    Just goes to show you these pages can be manipulated. Slager is joke, with an ego the size of AZ. He treats the people below him like "trash" and your employment is only as secure as it relates to how much you suck up to this guy and stoke his ego.

    Leadership skills . Lack ability to build strong open teams. Advancement is minimal at best in IT.

    Recognize the importance of the teams you manage. Listening skills require development while giving orders should be minimized. Recoginze/rewaRd more often giving credit where credit is due. Providing feedback and clear expectations goes a long ways.
