    Pros

    Benefits, especially the 401k match and vision and dental are better than a lot of companies.

    Cons

    It's still an "ole boys" club and a lot of nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have employees who want to learn more, be more, and advance. Help them out instead of saying "we'll see", otherwise the employee will become work drones that have lost the passion.

    Pros

    Can be fun work, good co workers, good work schedules (for the most part)

    Cons

    Terrible direct manager. I have engaged direct manager and his manager multiple times with no success. A few bad apples makes this a difficult place to work at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of terrible lower management! Unless there is a management change up, I would not recommend this employer.

    I have been working at Republic Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, medical benefits, 401K, PTO, and two weeks paid vacation from the moment you complete your 60 day probation.

    Cons

    In my opinion Republic Services is grossly understaffed. I have noticed a high rate of turn-around. Opportunity for advancement is almost non-existent. To say working for this company is stressful would be an understatement. Daily duties, call monitoring and productivity grading are mentally exhausting. Employment with this company will and does drain the life out of you.

    Pros

    Paycheck deposited regularly and essp is ok....just ok

    Cons

    Senior leadership resembled feces throwing gorillas in nice suits. But if you like to engage in monosyllabic dialogue with greedy, valueless clownish thugs, then call this place home. Otherwise avoid at all costs this poisonous environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign.
