    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.

    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.
