    I have been working at ADS Environmental Services

    Pros

    The comprehensive benefits package, which included tuition assistance for higher education opportunities.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, no matter how employee friendly a corporate position may be, there will always be inherent downsides. For example, in 2000, ADS in its infinite ignorance, hired the removed CEO ,(read fired), of Proctor and Gamble. Considering the vast environmental impact of ADS Corporation, if Proctor and Gamble felt that this guy was ineffective, why would ADS want to pick up someone else's garbage. By the way, where is this guy now? Probably, recently released, (read fired), from someplace like Lehman Brothers, or Fannie Mae. At any rate, this move proved to be a significant blow to ADS' market share. Dumb move!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring CEOs who have no previous experience in the industry.

    I have been working at ADS Environmental Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    depending on where you work, most of your hours are just spent on the road driving from site to site to for servicing. Training and safety is a priority for the company

    Cons

    irregular hours. inconsistent schedule. lots of traveling. pay is low compared to industry standards. You WILL get dirty with sewer water.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    share the work bonuses from the big contracts you get with the Field Reps and lower level employees. Pizza party's don't cut it. It would be nice to see more incentives and performance bonuses.

    I worked at ADS Environmental Services

    Pros

    The benefits are good. A lot of holidays are given, the vacation schedule is good. The insurance is very good, better than anywhere else. The working conditions are good. Fellow employees are very friendly and helpful to each other. Usually good relations with upper management.

    Cons

    The pay scales are not in line with other places of similar work. The salaries are not as high with similar job descriptions in other places of employment. There are no bonuses. You are expected to get work done no matter what time frame with no compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonuses should be included for those employees that work hard and long hours. Only a select few at the top have the possibility of getting a bonus. Employee reviews are completed only to check a box and are not used properly to accurately gauge employee work.
