I worked at Waste Management full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The co-workers are nice and pleasant people. Field management is a pleasure to work with. You will be exposed to different projects and you learn a lot in a short amount of time. The benefits are good. Not bad if you want to spend a short time and move on to a better place. Afterall, it's a Fortune 200.

Cons

You give an inch, the management wants a foot. The work pressure is overwhelming. Don't expect a promotion either, they always hire externally even when there is qualified people in house. Morale is low and there are a lot of disgruntled employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management no longer understands what is going on in the field and listened too much to external consultants who really don't understand the business. They want to meet (& beat) analysts' projections and have let go a lot of the good people. Treat your employees the way they deserved to be treated.
