    Pros

    Great work life balance, very friendly people, quiet spaces to work. Great benefits. Employee centered environment. Managers are very responsive and inviting with any concerns or questions. Definitely a lot of growth potential.

    Cons

    Can be challenging at times with the workload but that is the fun part being able to juggle responsibilities and priorities. I wouldn't necessarily call it a con because it pushes you to learn, grow and develop in your role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. It is refreshing to come to a new company and be in an environment where you can tell that you want your team to do well and are willing to provide whatever training is necessary to assist in that process. The benefits help to keep employees engaged and wanting to come in each week.

    Pros

    Veolia places on emphasis on the people that work at all levels within the organization. The leaders demonstrate humility, are very approachable and make the workplace an enjoyable one. They " walk the talk" when it comes to ethics and integrity.

    Cons

    Can be risk adverse at times- ie Acquisitions

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive in blending the synergies that exist within the hazardous waste and industrial services segments

    Pros

    speaking for our location I can say that they are a good group of people who are a pleasure to work for and with. If there is extra work to be done they ask if you can do it and if you cant they never make you feel guilty or that you are not pulling your share. If you do anything extra you are always thanked usually by more than one person, its very refreshing to me to feel appreciated. They also are very forward thinking as a company about environmental issues which is neet to be a part of. As a dirver for this company I am also very happy with the attention to safety and maintenance of the vehicles we use everyday.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours can get very long and early starts are rough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, at least in my shop it still has the comfortable feel of a smaller family run business.
