    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Republic Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and was fortunate to make a few lifelong friends.

    Cons

    Was told specifically that they are there to ensure that "leadership" succeeds. There are a lot of unethical things that are overlooked for certain people, but the same infraction is handed a reprimand for others. A lot of favortism.
