    Pros

    You will get a paycheck and the benefits are average. There are a handful of good, honest, hard working people there.

    Cons

    The company is totally mismanaged and is operated in a manner that is irresponsible to the shareholders. Annual salary adjustments and performance reviews are basically non existent. The company is always looking for the next big thing that is going to make them successful and it always ends up being a failure. Promotions are based on who you know not what you know. On top of all this, the company's safety program is a joke, it looks good on paper that's about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step down and allow someone who knows what they are doing run the show. You guys are not as smart as you think!

    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 worked at Casella Waste Systems

    Pros

    Good people at the hourly and lower mgmt levels.

    Cons

    The company is broke. People are tired and demoralized. No faith in Sr. Mgmt. Trying too hard to be like the "big boys". Local, hometown feel has been destroyed by current mgmt. Noone listens to the type of equipment you need. Lots of money spent on putting lipstick on pigs, none spent on their people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sell to Waste Connections immediately.
