    I have been working at Republic Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Longtime employees that have the knowledge to help me succeed, feels like family here, always an opportunity to learn, someone will always listen, give positive feedback

    Cons

    The only con is the processed change so much it is tough to keep all employees focused and excited meaning as soon as everyone is trained on a new process, it changes which brings moral down.

    Advice to Management

    Research data fully before assuming someone is not doing their jobs. Or to place blame where blame is due, not on everyone.

    Pros

    Republic Services is pro employee and allows every door to be open in order to be successful. The training and the passion for safety is second to none.

    Cons

    Would like to channel the passion that is shown at the cooperate level down to the field. Seems to be a disconnect a bit and would like to see more buy in at the BU levels.

    Advice to Management

    It has been said the Middle management is the worst job in the company considering your getting it from both sides. But they could not do it without us.... So that needs to be remembered and respected more.

    Pros

    I believe Republic Services is a good company. It promotes from with in . Republic does a good job at trying to develop talent and is big on safety for our employees.

    Cons

    One HUGE con is that the Divisions in the same BU affect each other. You could have a division doing great at meeting all there goals putting plans in place and meeting budget and the other division doing terrible and this affects the bonus of the division that's worked hard and made a plain and improved.

    Advice to Management

    Separate the divisions. At least when it comes to performance.
