At a crossroads for WM company employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsHuge 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.

ConsMany 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 Senior ManagementWhy keep dumping the people who do the real work?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
