    I worked at Covanta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    healthcare and benefits are the only plus

    Cons

    Power Plant is in rough shape, 20 plus years of absolute years of abuse, bad work environment, ash everywhere. In 6 months never came across the union once, the company need to put money into the plant to make it run better Limping by with bad equipment. Really isnt any employee morel, lots of negatives, they always run skeleton crews and always hiring it seems like. Anybody that wants to work her - keep looking, no amount of money is worth that much frustation and mental anguish, personally can never get enough done without being judged by other operators

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make a decision instead of asking everyone else, get some real direction

    Pros

    Salary and benefits were good

    Cons

    politics was constantly influencing job promotions, tasks, and knowledge sharing. The Big Boys club at its worst.
