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 Management

Why keep dumping the people who do the real work?
