    I have been working at Covanta full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Above industry average pay and benefits. The job is not monotonous. New systems are continually being installed and they are starting to update the technology on older systems. Committed to safety with a well-intentioned safety program.

    Cons

    Deterioration of health benefits (every year they seem to increase by just as much as the 2% cost of living raise). They have no regard for an employees personal life. Permanent schedules changed without employee consideration. Mandatory overtime on an almost weekly basis, but you're not told about it until the last possible minute. The safety program has good intentions, but is merely a facade when production is in question. Management style is to run the place into the ground and then fix it when it finally destroys itself (leading to previously mentioned overtime/callouts).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to caring about the employees as much as you care about the $$$. A yearly barbecue doesn't really make up for the way you treat employees the rest of the year. Rising health care costs are not your fault, but you need to realize that a persons life shouldn't have to revolve around their occupation. Rather than change an employees schedule to cut back on overtime and callouts, try utilizing a PM program to fix things before they break.
