    I worked at Covanta as an intern (more than an year)


    IT infrastructure is top notch, is constantly expanding and being kept up to date. Pay was fair for an internship and working overtime was not really I problem if I felt like putting in some extra time. The Morristown office is beautiful, modern and there is plenty of coffee and beverages around for anyone to enjoy. There are a lot of different and new technologies in play at Covanta, so there is a lot to gain and learn - You just need to branch out of your comfort zone.


    Company culture is very stuffy. Upper management, VPs and assistants are all very snobby and wouldn't be caught dead mingling with the normal folk at the company. Many of the executive assistants will do whatever they can to make your life more difficult and think they have more power than they actually do. CEO Tony Orlando is standoffish and again wouldn't be caught dead conversing with anyone below the VP level. You have your normal corporate politics at this company and it often interferes with your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the lower and middle level employees with more respect. These people do the brunt of the work for the company and they are often treated like the garbage that is dumped daily at one of the many sites.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
