    Pros

    Great place to work

    Cons

    The whole company (each BU) is not on the same page. Different management styles and protocol for each location. The different BU operate different ways according to the Republic Standards is one way but it doesn't happen that way.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the ways you treat each level from Supervisor to Manger and make sure the change is same across the board.

    Pros

    Mentorship is big in this company. As a new hire in a supervisor role I have two managers that help guide me through decision and provide feedback.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement if willing to move.

    Individual BU's are run as their own businesses with freedom to make individual decisions.

    Pay seems to be fair for management but not all positions below supervisor/management.

    Company trending very positively when speaking financially.

    Cons

    Things are moving fast and you don't know what to focus on. Do we focus on saving accounts? Selling accounts? Selling light bulbs? We try to do it all but it gets very tough.

    Ethics. Are price increases beyond reasonable "healthy" rates really the right thing to do?

    The industry doesn't stop. Encourage employees to start and end their day with proper time for family.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of positions could work from home some days. A lot of BU's are located in areas far out of city limits and it would be nice to cut down on commute time.

    Also, area jobs could be done in current locations with the use of technology. There is no need for people to feel like they need to be in Indianapolis, Atlanta, Charlotte etc. moving across the country isn't good for all families. A lot of talent is left on the table.

    Rewards/trips are needed for middle management.

    Great place to work on a day to day basis. There is an emphasis put on Safety and employee engagement with allot of career advancement opportunities

    Cons

    Technology is a huge problem at Republic. Everything still runs through a DOS database system. So huge amounts of time are consumed dealing with running reports and entering data into excel spreadsheets.

    Advice to Management

    Make a true dedication to updating in the field technologies sooner than later.

    The passion,one way and respect you get from customers.

    Sometimes the hours climb but the reward you get back from the respect from the drivers many times makes it worth it.

    Maybe consider some perks for say long hours vs comp time perk.No incedents in your LOB for a monthe maybe adding to comp time or gift card etc.

    Pros

    The financial strength of the company speaks volumes. Everyone is very down-to-earth and at the end of the day they want to take care of customers and the business. The executives are very self-aware and know what direction the company needs to take in order to be successful over the next 20 years. I really like it here and don't see myself leaving.

    Cons

    I would love to see a 100% 401k match up to 6% or tuition assistance.
