    Current Employee - Manager in Midwest, WY

    I have been working at Waste Management full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Autonomy, work ethic, dedicated employees who deliver strong results, work and life balance is pretty good

    Cons

    Senior leadership has no connection to the field. They have greater than thou attitude with the customer facing employees. More focus on cutting the workforce to meet Wall Street expectations versus a strategy of selling your way out of a problem. Wall Street manages the company versus the company managing Wall Street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out in the field and talk with front line employees and managers, Require the BOD to do the same. This is a service business that requires engaged employees and informed customers.

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

    Former Employee - Sales in Richmond, VA
    Former Employee - Sales in Richmond, VA

    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%!
