    I have been working at Casella Waste Systems

    Pros

    There is plenty of room to move around in the company, and try out different positions. The working environment is laid back, and friendly. They put trust in their employees to get their jobs done.

    Cons

    High employee and management turnover. No yearly raises. No raises for taking on a more challenging, or different position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into the jobs that people do, see if they have special skills, and can do things that the company usually hires out to contractors. Reward these employees with higher compensation than new hires.

    I have been working at Casella Waste Systems

    Pros

    Dedicated employees, good benefits, and a passionate CEO.

    Cons

    Top down management, employees feel they have no voice with minimal if any reward for their hard work and efforts, and leaders who are chosen because of who they know, not because they are the best fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some of the leadership advice you feed to your people. Put more effort in the selection process of your leaders so your hard working hourly employees can feel that pride they once had.
