I have been working at Waste Management full-time for more than a year

Pros

pretty solid earnings potential if you are good at sales. You don't have to take your work home with you.

Cons

zero freedom, seemingly endless calls throughout the day. Sales goals can be quite lofty and unattainable.

    I worked at Waste Management full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits, reward programs, great customers.

    Cons

    Treats employees very badly, with a 'guilty until proven innocent' attitude. Employees are micro managed with cameras, gps, computer systems, etc. Stops for bathrooms must be explained. If an accident occurs, the driver is always at fault, even if the police report states there was no fault on the driver, and you will be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees with respect, instead of like common criminals.

    Pros

    Good reputation, active in the community

    Cons

    Each market area for WM has it's on P&L therefore they don't take "orders" from Corporate seriously, which trickles down to all who are attempting organization and standarization in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way you are structured and you will be more strategic in your change efforts.
