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

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, other drivers are helpful

    Cons

    Poor management, Horrible trucks, managers have no experience in operating trucks or garbage collection, no room for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and actually listen to your employees on the street. The trucks are not safe. If you down a truck you get stuck in a truck in even worse shape. If there aren't any other trucks available you get sent home without pay. Management talks down to you. If you get hurt they do whatever and say whatever to get out of paying workers comp. This is by far the worst company I have ever worked for.

    I worked at Waste Management full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company, good benefits, One of the few companies that still throws a good Christmas party.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure is a sweat shop. They will work you 24 x 7 the lay you off when they outsource your job. I was't personally laid off but got out while I still had my sanity. Lots of back stabbing and internal competition to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop encourages the favorite child culture. I have never seen another place where people in Management roles were so cut throat toward their peers. The culture inside IT Infrastructure is really unfortunate. WM could be so great with some minor changes.
