I worked at Waste Management as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Friendly staff and supervisors. Everybody, from the administrative staff to the executives and VPs, treated me, an intern, like a part of the WM family. Great mentors and outstanding HR personnel. Just an overall outstanding internship program.

Cons

At times, things got slow and the work load became a bit mundane. I don't believe there is much of a chance to be hired full time after graduation; not sure that full time positions exist for new grads in engineering.

    I worked at Waste Management as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I greatly enjoyed my time at WM. Their commitment to reducing their landfill impact and optimizing their recycling centers and composting partner relations is awe-inspiring. As they say "We are the littlest big company you will ever find.". My managers were well versed in their field and were well regarded by those that worked with them on projects. I never felt that my efforts were for nothing and received feedback and motivation throughout the course of my employment.

    Cons

    Things move slowly through the management chain, but this is a minor weakness and due more so to the fact of their large company size. Pay could have been a little better, but there were numerous opportunities for overtime.
