I have been working at Waste Management

Pros

Good pay and benefits. Good company goals and sense of pride for working there. Good opportunity to learn new things.

Cons

Bad management. Little room for promotion, little praise for good work or rewarding for a job well done. Very unorganized

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Eliminate middle management and start from scratch. It is not worth it to give the best drivers a management spot

    Very nice work environment due to office environment and coworkers, not because of tedious work.

    I worked at Waste Management

    Pros

    Easy going and laid back work environment.
    Great with employee benefits and reimbursements.
    Management allows fair amounts of freedom and independence for employees, very little micromanagement.

    Cons

    Not very interesting or exciting work, it is a trash and recycling firm after all.
    Recent management changes and restructuring has resulted in chaos at previously smooth running offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More bottom to top communications, and top to bottom communications. Big disconnect between what management thinks and what employees do.

    Pros

    Good financial stability. Company is forward thinking. Company is not risk adverse.

    Cons

    Company is lacking in HR sophistication. Promotions and merit raises are mostly based on relationships - not performance based.
