I worked at Waste Management full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Stable in field positions. Good experience. Stable company for the most part. Great benefits package. Most of management is very dedicated and watches out for their employees.

Cons

Very hard to create change especially on the employee engagement spectrum. Company tends to make mistakes on hiring senior leadership especially in the Customer Service/Experience & Employee Engagement arenas. They continuously hire huge project teams, only to realign and release everyone six months later.

Not on the high end of the pay spectrum and the work is not always glamorous. IT leadership is very slow making decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you have a vision for a major company project or employee initiative stick with it. Don't mothball it every 6 months because of budget. Invest for the long term, not the short.

    Pros

    none at all unless you kiss ass

    Cons

    everything about the company is horrible...management doesn't care about the employees...they treat them like trash...theres no leadership all that matters is raping the customer on bs fees that are just to line the fat cats wallets and make their golfing trips that much better..the sales incentives are given to depts that have nothing to do with sales..employees dont receive any acknowledgment from management unless you're kissing ass and backstabbing...as a current employee i've witnessed racism an sexual deeds happening in the building and no actions were taken...5 yrs into the company having many positions not a chance to move up as i have been held down because of the way i look...horrible company to work for please don't waste your time..."undercover boss" was a joke doesn't show the real side of the company...i tell customers to go elsewhere and try to get business away from them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
