I have been working at Waste Management full-time (more than a 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.

    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?
