I have been working at Waste Management full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Huge company, many divisions, financially strong, lots of opportunities (especially if one's open to relocation) across the country. Has traditionally been very generous to it's employees, and formerly enjoyed a great reputation as a great place to work.

Cons

Many company functions are becoming centralized, which causes significant loss of "local" talents and relationships. This is do to cost-cutting, even though all the information put out by the company always seems to be rolling in dough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why keep dumping the people who do the real work?

    Doing a major reconstruction - don't care about their employees

    I worked at Waste Management full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was decent as was hours. Gave you the training you needed to get the job done. Tried to give good customer service for what they were charging for but this did not always happen.

    Cons

    Raises were on hold. Always doing a reconstruction in the sales area. Think that because they have been around for a long time they should be able to give customers a higher rate than their competitor, not realistic with their sales goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more realistic with pricing due to the economy! Need to value the customers they have that give more than 100%!
