    I have been working at Waste Management full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Waste Management is a very good company to work for as a whole, but if local management does not like you they can railroad you out and it is very much a buddy system and not measures on your abiities. The higher management is for the company, but the lower management is just about protecting thier jobs.

    Cons

    They do not like suggestions from lower managers and treat the drivers like a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some advice from the people that are in the trenches and look at moral issues. Look at hiring HR people that are not such good buddies with management so employees feel like they can talk to them without knowing that it is going to go straight to their managers.

    I worked at Waste Management as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to work on high quality projects and get involved in programs that help drive the company forward.

    Cons

    The fast paced environment and high turnover keep employees busy and feeling overworked and underappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in keeping best talent working on important projects, while freeing up some of their time from work that can be delegated to others.
